Mumbai: Actor-producer Anil Kapoor, who defies age with his suave style and physically fit frame, says dressing well is an art.
The “24” actor, who credits his mother for teaching him the value of being well-dressed, shared his sentiments in an interview on Colors Infinity’s show “Born Stylish” with host and designer Pria Kataaria Puri.
Anil said there was a time when everybody at birthday parties thought that he was from a very rich family as he was always well-dressed, read a statement.
“In fact, there are still an uninformed lot of people who look down upon fashion enthusiasts and people who dress well. Actually, they don’t know that it’s an art and of course good business,” said Anil, whose daughter Sonam Kapoor is also looked up by many as a fashion icon.
Puri also believes that clothes don’t wear you, you wear clothes.
“I agree with Anil Kapoor. Style is not about spending money, but an expression of who you are. My show is an attempt of connecting the masses to fashion through exposing the style journey of their favourite icons,” she said.
On his favourite style moment, Anil said: Â“My walk in film ‘Ram Lakhan’ was my most spectacular style moment.”
He also shared that compliments are always welcome, but “I am not delusional”.
“I know where I stand and believe in ageing gracefully. But no one is immortal.”
