Fashion:

He is not the ultimate style guru of Bollywood. But odes know how to look right. Some of his looks in his movies have been highly appreciated. He is seen experimenting with his hair-do the most. Like in the film 'Chocolate', his look gave him a distinct persona and suited his character well. In PAHELI he has pushed his hair back while in GOPI KISHEN, the look is said to go very well with the rustic northern character he was playing in the film.

He also makes a style statement with a tattoo of 'Om Namah Shivay' and 'The Third Eye' on his arm. The actor is known to be a staunch devotee of Lord Shiva, which is the reason for him to choose that tattoo.
