Upcoming model Sunny Gill is over the top after receiving a compliment from his screen idol Amitabh Bachchan at the recent International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) fashion show in Dubai.
"After the show Mr. Bachchan told me he enjoyed the show and I was great on the ramp. He also told me to keep it up," said Sunny, who started his modelling career just six months ago.
"This is the best compliment I have received because it comes from a legend whose talent I admire," added Sunny, who says he grew up watching Amitabh movies and has seen his Agneepath at least 100 times!"
Sunny, who walked the ramp for Manish Malhotra and Vikram Phadnis at the IIFA awards, started his modelling career with the Provogue Rang De Basanti fashion show and worked for Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla during the India Fashion Week in Delhi.
Before that he featured in VJ Sophie's music video Mera Babu Chhail Chhabila and ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh's video Raat Khamosh Hai.
