Bollywood Fashion: Shahrukh Khan’s got contrasting looks in Don 2

February 25, 2011

Shahrukh Khan looked haggard, gaunt and almost repulsive on the cover of Bombay Times this Monday. His hair was long, dishevelled and tied up, he was unshaved, and he was in a prisoner’s uniform. In another photo (see below), he sports a tattoo on his right arm. Certainly not the Shahrukh we’re so used to.

We suspect that’s how Shahrukh will look in the early scenes of Don 2: The Chase Continues (releases December 2011).

After Don escapes from prison, and cops chase him around the world (including Berlin), the gangster will be back to his conniving ways and his preferred style. Calling it a stark contrast would be an understatement, right?

Shahrukh Khan is formal, though he’s not wearing a suit. The stylist/ costume designer (we’re still trying to figure out who it is) has layered several textures in varying shades of grey. The garments have been tailored to make the already-fit Shahrukh aka Don look sleeker. And the trench coat is just to die for—can’t remember the last time Shahrukh Khan wore one on-screen. It’s the perfect touch to the 21st century, sophisticated gangster look.

Meanwhile, Don covers his evil eyes with sunglasses and sports a haircut that is full on the crown and slightly spiked (we suspect it’s Adhuna Bhabani-Akhtar/ her B:Blunt team behind the hair style). And oh, he’s clean-shaven. Yay to that!

In two words: We like!

    Oddly I prefer the look in the first pic more – he reminds me of a bad boy – an image i have rarely seen him in.. 🙂

      @Tanveer– Good point. We haven’t seen him as bad boy recently, been at least a decade since Darr/ Anjaam/ Baazigar. But even in those movies, he was styled like a good guy. 🙂

        Ohh! Lets not even talk about 90’s mens fashion – it was a disaster & no one even talks about it – baggy hippy pleated pants in colors like purple, mustard yellow.. *urgh* 😛

        @Tanveer- LOL, so true!! And I always disliked the padded shoulders and jackets that looked at least 2 sizes bigger…. 😛
