New Delhi, July 29 (IANS) Designer Aki Narula, who is styling Shah Rukh Khan for his upcoming film “Dilwale”, says that working with the Bollywood superstar is always a delight as he is like an elder brother to him.
“It’s a delight to work with Shah Rukh Khan,” Narula told IANS on the sidelines of the The Treasury of Trousseau, a four-day fashion and lifestyle event at DLF Emporio here.
“This my third movie with him. I did ‘Don’, ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ and now I am doing ‘Dilwale’ with him, so it feels like (being) family…it’s going back home to him. We had a fantastic one and half month schedule in Bulgaria and I am looking forward to my next schedule with him. He is like my elder brother,” he added.
The designer is also working on “Tamasha” and “Rock On 2”.
“’Tamasha’ is my next release, which is coming out in November. I am also working on ‘Rock On 2’, which starts in the end of September or early October. So these are some of my next projects,” said the designer, and added that Bollywood projects keep him so occupied that he hardly gets the time to participate in fashion weeks.
“I did my last fashion week in 2009 and the reason I am not participating in them now is because I am working on films. I do roughly about two to three films every year and one film takes up more than a year or sometimes even more than that.
“I started working on ‘Tamasha’ in June 2014 and the last schedule is still on…where is the time to do anything else,” Narula said.
However, he misses the fun around “fashion”.
“I miss fashion. I think working with film is more about styling and designing together. Films have nothing to do with fashion,” added the designer, who has worked as a costume designer for films like “Bunty Aur Babli” and “Kill Dil”.
