The 'Rockstar' actor says that his grandmother Krishna Raj Kapoor is the most stylist woman he has ever met

Dashing Ranbir Kapoor, who has completely taken over the youth of today, surprisingly calls himself too laidback to be called a style icon and reveals that mega star Amitabh Bachchan has been his style icon since childhood.

As reported by a leading daily, Ranbir has been quoted in interview with PTI, “Amitabh Bachchan has been my style icon since my childhood. Even now he is the best and you can’t steal away the limelight from him.”

The ‘Rockstar’ actor, who is very close to his grandmother, said that his grandmother Krishna Raj Kapoor is the most stylist woman he has ever met. He also added that he does not identify himself with the tag of fashion.

Bollywood’s heartthrob who made his debut with Sanjay Leela Bansali’s ‘Saavariya’, walked the ramp for designer Kunal Rawal as the showstopper at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/ Festive 2016.

He said: “I am someone who is always seen in a pair of jeans, T-shirt, cap and sneakers, I don’t understand why someone will follow my style. I don’t read fashion blogs and all this is not important to me.” Rawal’s collection “Role Play” was a mix of bold and neutrals which added to the festive tonality of the garments.

At the the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/ Festive 2016, shades of wine, champagne, ivory and blue along with charcoals and olives dominated the ramp. Bandi, jackets, modern versions of sherwanis and short pathani kurtas were also part of the collection.

On the work front, Ranbir Kapoor will be seen next in Karan Johar film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, produced under his home banner Dharma Production. Ranbir is back with his charm and is all set ready to make a comeback with this upcoming flick. He will be seen opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma. The film’s teaser has been launched and looks like a triangular love story, but it has much more to it and is an ode to ‘unrequited love’.

Let us wish him good luck for this project.
