MUMBAI - After the dhoti-clad look in his last period film “Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey”, Bollywood’s star actor Abhishek Bachchan has become quite a pro in tying one and displayed his expertise to Italians on a trip to Florence.
“When Abhishek was in Florence, people requested him to show how to wear a dhoti (the wraparound waist-wear). So he actually showed them,” a source close to the unit said.
“He also went on to say that he loves wearing Indian wear a lot and as and when he gets the opportunity to wear he doesn’t miss it,” the source added.
Abhishek, son of Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan, and who is married to another star and former Miss World, Aishwarya Rai, travelled to Florence to be a part of Florentine label Ferragamo’s ‘Shoes for a Star’ project, becoming the first Indian actor to receive the made-to-order Tramezza shoes from Ferragamo.
Abhishek, his wife and father endorse several leading national and international brands.
