Ranveer Singh is known for his eccentric sense of style. Therefore, when the 34-year-old showed up in a rather peculiar Manish Arora outfit and dark eyes at his own wedding party last weekend, no one was surprised.
If anything, we were all expecting the Bollywood heartthrob to return to his quirky fashion sooner or later. Then, after all the lovely but too-traditional-for-Singh outfits from his wedding in Italy, it felt like a breath of fresh air when the Befikre star shared a picture of a recent magazine cover of his. What’s even cooler is that Singh is sporting an outfit made by Lahore-based fashion designer Mohsin Naveed Ranjha in the picture!
“I was in contact with Ranveer’s team for the past two years before the actual shoot happened in London. They looked at our work very closely before any final commitments were made but I’m glad that he loved it and officially took us onboard,” Ranjha told The Express Tribune. “I personally kept Ranveer’s quirky dressing sense in mind while designing for him. His royal looks in most of his film were an inspiration.”
Talking about photo-shoot experience, Ranjha added, “It was exceptional! Ranveer is not just an amazing person but also very co-operative. We would often forget he is a Bollywood sensation and have random chit chats with him. He’s fantastic guy and we loved working for him. Off camera, he is a normal, chilled out guy but in front of it, he would transform into a mega movie star.”
The designer further shared, “Ranveer has very positive thoughts about Pakistan and often talked about how much he admires our artists. He has huge regard for fashion designers across the border and not exaggerating but he’s quite excited to experiment with our designs in near future.”
Singh will be gracing the cover of Filmfare magazine in Ranjha’s creation next month. Of course, this isn’t the first time Bollywood artists have collaborated with Pakistani designers. Starlets such as Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Kangana Ranaut and many others have often been spotted in outfits by Pakistani designers.
