Kolkata: Biswarup Bandyopadhyay, who played one of the lead protagonists in E Amar Gurudakshina and was last seen in Gopal Bhar, says that he doesn’t understand fashion and is not fashion conscious at all.
‘My fashion sense is very bad. I don’t understand fashion,’ the actor candidly said to loan trading.
He further added, ‘For me, fashion is comfort. Considering the kind of weather Kolkata has, I love wearing three-quarter pants and T-shirts. I love Bohemian kind of attire.’
Being a part of the entertainment world, where looking presentable is very important, how does he manage? ‘I create my own style and sometimes take the help of (designer) friends. I am more of an online shopping person. I take screenshots and then ask my friends to share their opinion on the outfits before purchasing.’
The actor, who also acted in the soap Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, doesn’t believe in following fashion trends.
He said, ‘I don’t follow fashion trends. Why should I wear what others are wearing? I will wear clothes in which I feel comfortable. To me, simple fashion is better than clothes with heavy work. You can say I am a bit old school.’
When asked to choose the best-dressed actors from Bengali entertainment industry, he said, ‘Abir Chatterjee and Raima Sen. Their fashion is classy and elegant.’
Durga Puja is around the corner, so we asked if he has started Puja shopping. He said, ‘I don’t think I will be in Kolkata during Pujo. Well, I will buy a pair of trekking shoes…I don’t know if it falls under Puja shopping…I don’t even remember when did I shop last. If I need anything, I will buy it online.’
