Randeep Hooda turns ‘modern maharaja’ for designer Rohit Kamra


Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda who was a model before entering films, was back on the ramp on Friday. He walked as the showstopper for designer Rohit Kamra at the ongoing Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Autumn-Winter 2016.

He brought a regal wave on the ramp as a ‘modern maharaja’ for the first menswear show of fashion gala, according to an IANS report. He looked smart in a white jacket teamed with brown trousers.

"I don't feel like a maharaja all the time but when I wear these clothes I do. He (Kamra) has done a great job bringing old world charm with modern touches to his collection. It was a great show," Randeep said.

The ‘Main Aur Charles’ actor also revealed that he might launch a fashion line in future, but for now he is finding his "own footing in style".

“I think I am still finding my own footing in my style. As I am associated with horses, so that takes a lot of my time. Let us see... that (fashion line) might be on the cards but I don't want to be pompous and say 'Hey, follow my style'," Randeep said.

The collection was inspired by rich history of India and its princely rulers with Jaypore influences. It was a mix of tradition and modernity in the form of sherwanis with trench coats, bandhgala jackets, trousers, Jodhpur jackets and breeches, as well as waistcoats and Nehru jackets.

Fabrics like flannel, wool, wool khadi, silk and cotton were used in hues of black, white, grey, blue, green. The show was presented collectively by three designers - Kamra, Ujjawal Dubey and Divyam Mehta.

Randeep will be next seen in Omung Kumar’s biopic ‘Sarabjit’ which also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The movie is set to hit screens on May 20.
