The lead actors of Zoya Akhtar's upcoming film Gully Boy, Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, are currently in Berlin to attend the special screening of their film at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival. Gully Boy has been zeroed in to be screened as part of Berlinale Special and both Ranveer and Alia are taking over the city with their eccentric and unconventional fashion choices.
Interestingly, Ranveer recently took one step ahead in experimenting with his sartorial sense by opting for a quirky and outlandish jacket by designer Manish Arora during press interactions. With Gully Boy written on the sleeves, Ranveer paired his powder blue jacket with pink glasses, and white pants. Check him out:
While Ranveer's look has evoked mixed responses from the netizens, the hidden meaning behind it will certainly win over your hearts. Commenting on how the idea germinated of designing the jacket, Manish revealed, "Anyone who is unconventional be in fashion or music or film, they make it to success because they believe in themselves. Only then will the world believe in them. This jacket is a culmination of these ideas. It's an association with my days of struggle. It's unconventional and just like anyone who has made it in life despite the odds, much like the character Ranveer is playing in Gully Boy. The jacket symbolises freedom, a reminder that we are rare and our own heroes!"
Isn't that fabulous? Well, only Ranveer could have pulled off this wacky, high-fashion and extremely unconventional statement. Do you agree?
Meanwhile, Alia too left everyone impressed by opting for a trailblazing white and red pantsuit from Moschino. She teamed it up with a pair of white heels and looked like the ultimate boss-lady.
Gully Boy is slated to hit the silver screens on February 14.
