Mumbai: Ace fashion designer Pria Kataaria Puri says she would get tongue-tied if she gets to style her favourite fashion icon, megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
“I like Amitabh Bachchan, he is my favourite style icon. He has a larger than life image, he has a great personality. The way he talks and walks is stylish. In every era be it 80s, 90s and 2000 and even now he dresses according to the time and he has looked handsome and charming always. I would get tongue-tied if I had to style him. He is a gentleman and has an old world charm,” Pria said.
Pria is making her television debut with a show titled Born Stylish. It will have Pria in conversation with style icons from the film and fashion industry. “I was excited about the show as celebrities and renowned international designers talk about fashion style. It demolishes the myth that fashion is to do with age, body type and brands that you wear,” Pria said.
“I believe everyone is born stylish. On the show we have Bollywood celebrities talking about how they have evolved when it comes to style. We also have international designers talking on it. It is an entertaining show,” she said.
Every episode will feature a chat with a world renowned designer and a Bollywood celebrity. The one-of-a-kind chat show attempts to map their artistic journey and how their fashion choices have evolved. “Celebrities are seen as style icons so we have got them on the show to talk about their perspective and views on it. We have Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Fawad Khan, Malaika Arora Khan and others,” Pria said.
The show consists of various seasons and in season one there are eight episodes. The 41-year-old designer would love to have Madonna, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and others on her show. “I would love to have Madonna on the show as she is a style icon. She has been around for around four decades and people have loved the way she dresses. I would also like to have Jennifer Lopez on the show..She has a distinct look and style,” she said.
“Besides them, if Gayatri Devi would have been alive today, I would be glad to have her on the show. I would like to have Katrina Kaif, Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan on the show,” she added. Born Stylish will be aired from today on Colours Infinity.
