Handsome, suave and extremely sexy – this is how host and mentor Karan Johar described his protégé on the last season of Koffee With Karan 5. We couldn’t agree more! Blessed with a genetic jackpot of a tall and athletic frame, classic cute looks, a coy smile that sets a million hearts aflutter, Sidharth Malhotra rarely steps out of his comfort zone of classic and casual style. But roping in the much-in-vogue military style game in tandem with ace fashion stylist, Nikita Jaisinghani for his upcoming action thriller film, Aiyaary, Sidharth Malhotra’s experimental style play is noteworthy. “Sidharth Malhotra’s off-screen promotional style is an extension of his on-screen avatar. We consciously added elements like jackets, cargo pants, jackets, washed out denim, combat boots and aviators to add a macho vibe to all his promotional looks,” says Nikita while speaking exclusively to Bollywood Hungama. While the obvious edginess of military-style cannot be ignored, we love how Sidharth and Nikita gave this tried-and-tested trend a crisp salute. Pulling off all looks with his candid candour and a rare subtlety, Sidharth Malhotra seamlessly incorporated this vibe as formal and casual wear.
Sidharth Malhotra essays the role of Major Jai Bakshi who is on the run and embarks on a dangerous mission to set the corrupt system right locking horns with his former mentor Colonel Abhay Singh essayed by Manoj Bajpayee. Pushing the fashion borders, this trend is gender neutral with the potential to stand out when paired appropriately. Last year, we witnessed a slew of celebs incorporating this trend in their multiple appearances at the airport and for promotional style files. But doing it like nobody else would and showing us how the uniform makes all things desirable, here’s how Sidharth Malhotra embraced the military trend.
Sidharth worked a camouflage jacket, basic white tee and cargo joggers from Asos, Superdry and Pepe perfectly with a pair of white lace-up sneakers. (Also Read: Inside Photos: Sidharth Malhotra celebrates his birthday with Karan Johar and close friends)
