Why Viveik Oberoi didn’t wear Cavalli or Armani,
Whilst the Bollywood contingent in Cannes have been shying away from ethnic wear,
, opting for international high end brands like Armani and Roberto Cavalli instead, one man proved exception to the rule. Viveik Oberoi proudly sported Indian outfits.
“I hated the idea of wearing a suit to Cannes. And since I wanted to promote Omkara, the Indian adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello, I felt it was appropriate to wear something Indian. It couldn’t have been anything else whilst representing Bollywood,” said Viveik.
Interestingly, the actor’s ex flame Aishwarya Rai was also seen wearing only international creations during her short stint at the festival. And while the actor didn’t want to comment on his former love’s style or the fact that they didn’t come face to face,
, he confessed that he had a blast in Cannes.
“Arjun Khanna (the designer behind his Cannes look) is truly a rock star. I love his sense of style and design.”
As far as Omkara is concerned, he said, “I am really excited by this film and the way it has shaped up, more so because Ajay (Devgan) and me are together after Company and Yuva. Guess it’s going be a third time lucky!”
An ‘original’ faux pas: Whether he was just living up to exaggerated opinions that lace typical Hindi movies or just plain excited, no one knows.
But Viveik Oberoi, who addressed the international press about his forthcoming film Omkara (an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello), gushed: “I think Vishalbhai’s Omkara is even better than the original version.” Fortunately,
, while the media (which included many Englishmen) cringed at the comparison, no one decided to make an issue of it!
