Hindustan Times Delhi’s Most Stylish saw the swishest set from Bollywood and the Capital in attendance on Friday ­evening.
Actor Akshay Kumar has won many awards, but he termed Hindustan Times Delhi’s Most Stylish as the “best” award he has ever received. “This will be one award I will hold close to my heart when I am old and ugly,” said the 46-year-old as he picked up India’s Style Icon award at a glittering ceremony held to honour the most stylish people of the Capital, on Friday.
Actor John Abraham, who ­hardly ever attends an award show, not only turned up to collect his India’s Youth Style Icon Award but also decided to shake a leg with his “guru” and Desi Boyz co-star, Akshay.
The fourth edition of HT Delhi’s Most Stylish was an ­amalgamation of all things special. The evening was made bright by the presence of the city’s most stylish, powerful and talented, who turned up at The Oberoi, Gurgaon, to raise a toast to those who define substance with style.
