  • Playing with the alter ego

    Perhaps because of his on screen persona, his predilections for branded clothes, men's jewellery and accessories, Khan is perceived as an arbiter of style and general manliness— perhaps, his alter ego? In reality, he is more likely to be playing cricket with his children in his apartment terrace or discussing life's philosophies over a game of UNO or Scrabble.

    We have seen all our favourite actresses don them! We have immaculately tried to duplicate their look, with micro sunglasses to metallic shades. But is this provision that we talk about only used for vanity?

  • Let the eyes do all the talking!

    What are things that we notice about people when we first meet them? Is it how their hair falls on their face? No it's the eyes…whether they shine, sparkle, smile, glimmer or maybe hiding behind some kind of grim. Either way, it's always the eyes!
