Salman Khan has always been a trendsetter. Whether it’s his long hair from Tere Naam (2003), Being Human tees and more recently, or the chequered scarf from Ek Tha Tiger, everything has been copied by his fans. For his next TV outing with reality show Bigg Boss season 6, he will be seen sporting a French beard and a new wardrobe and has even shot the promos in this avatar.
Salman’s sister Alvira Agnihotri and designer Ashley Rebello have ensured that the star looks hot on the small screen. Rebello spills the beans on Sallu’s latest style, saying, "Salman Khan's look is more formal as compared to the previous seasons. He will sport a more structured look with a mix of two-button suits, jackets in colours such as lemonade yellow, mustard and salmon pink, and a lot of black shirts with trendy ties. Also, he will be seen flaunting a brand new element, which will create a rage.” But the designer stays mum on it claiming that it’s a surprise, which will be revealed later.
His fans have mixed reactions about his new look. Neela Mehta, a 35-year-old architect, says, “Salman's new look reminds me of Amitabh's from KBC."
Alisha Rodriguez, 25, writer, echoes her saying, “The French beard is weird and makes him look old.”
However, Sapna Ganjawala, 16, student feels that he looks really smart with the French beard and can carry off any look.
Another positive response comes from designer Sanjiv Mimani, 45. “The look is different and a good attempt. It might take a while to get used to it, as he’s always been fuzz free,” he says.
Hair it comes
Aman Verma: “The new look looks promising as he has always been cleanshaven. It’s a different appereance.”
Tina Datta: “Salman has an ingrained sense of style. Formal suits paired with sunglasses will make him look every bit the Bigg Boss man!”
Nandish Sandhu: “I met him while he was shooting the promos and right then I’d said that he’s looking cool.”
Mahek Chahel: “India’s hottest man Mr Salman Khan looks cool. He will rock BB 6 again.”
