Bollywood’s biggest stars descended at the Taj Land’s End, Bandra, on Friday evening, for the sixth edition of Hindustan Times Mumbai’s Most Stylish Awards. The crème de la crème of the city walked the red carpet at the venue: Chef Saransh Goila, TV host Manish Paul, singers Alka Yagnik and Kailash Kher and actor-model Esha Gupta were among the first ones to reach.
Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff, too, walked in with his typical swagger. He looked dapper in a black bandhgala jacket, a scarf fashioned as a bow-tie around his neck, and a stylish horn-rimmed, tinted glasses.
Yet, when asked what, or ‘who’ he was wearing – the celebrity slang for the designer who has designed the particular outfit – Shroff, in his signature ‘bhidu’ style, said he had no idea. “I seriously have no idea what I am wearing. These are my riding shoes, which I wear whenever I wish to. The jacket is a gift from my friend, Deepak. He sent it from Pune for tonight. These pants are a gift from my Kitchen gang,” he said.

But, he was quick to reassure us that he is, in fact, very excited to be here. “My heart is my own. As is my soul, and my vibe. I am wearing the original versions of all three,” he said.
A fan of glares, and a self-proclaimed collector of sunglasses, Shroff said he is the best person to gift a pair to. “My friends like borrowing my glares. So, when one friend gifts me one, another comes and borrows it. Everyone gives me their glares,” he said.
