‘Pura Bollywood Rent Pe Hai’: Ayushmann Khurrana On Celebs Sourcing Clothes Instead Of Buying

In Bollywood, it’s like a fashion show every time a celebrity steps out. They rarely repeat outfits, and boy, are they extravagant! Now, where do they hide all these glitzy ensembles? Do they have secret closets the size of football fields, or maybe a magic wardrobe that leads to Narnia? Actor Ayushmann Khurrana spilt the beans on this one recently.

Ayushmann Khurrana revealed that celebrities hire stylists who source clothes from designers and then they return the clothes.

For example, we see Deepika Padukone wearing heavy and ridiculously gorgeous Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra outfits all the time. The truth is, they are all rented clothing.

“Pura Bollywood rent pe hai. Aapko lagta hai hum kapde kharedte hai? (Whole Bollywood is on rent. Do you think we buy all our clothes?) We hire stylists, they source the clothes and return the clothes. Where will we take so many clothes?” Indian Express quoted him saying.

Even though Ayushmann is seen in fashionable clothing all the time, he says that he isn’t passionate about fashion. Instead, it is his brother Aparshakti Khurana who loves fashion and can come up with looks very well. In fact, he used to style Ayushmann in his initial years and get pocket money in return.

“I am not passionate about fashion. My life is very simple, but if you have to sport different looks for your work that’s a part of your profession but I am not driven by it. Like my brother (Aparshakti Khurana) loves fashion and he does it very well. In fact, in the initial years when I was doing anchoring, he used to style me. He used to get pocket money for that. Maine bola tu mujh style karde, ghar ke paise ghar mein aajaege (I told him style me, the money will stay in the house). Later he told me he doesn’t have time, mein khud actor ban gaeya hu (I myself have become an actor),” he divulged.

Now this solves the mystery of the obscene number of new outfits!
