Additi Gupta, better known as Pihu of Zee TV's Sanjog Se Bani Sangini, has always looked spell-bounding in all the attires she wears, be it Indian or Western.

This week Telly Buzz caught up with this talented actor and had a chat where she said what she would have been, otherwise an actor...

What If.....

"Fashions fade, style is eternal."

Fashion designers are well in demand these days as trend and fashion changes daily and fashion makes one of the main identities of a person. They are considered to be creative people who make people look ravishing in their clothes. But it is an unavoidable fact that these hot outfits may even burn the pockets of a buyer.

So Fashion Designing is indeed a glamorous profession with which one can make a great earning. And Additi Gupta said that she would have been a fashion designer if not an actor.

Let's hear it from Additi Gupta...

I would have been a Fashion Designer if I was not an actor, that is if I had completed my course which I was doing before I entered into the industry.

I was a student of Fashion Designing in Symbiosis College, Pune and it was during the middle of the semester that I had auditioned for Balaji. After the auditions, I got constant calls from the production house after which I had to forego my studies and today when I look back I really do not feel like going back. I am enjoying what I am doing and I get in touch with various designers from whom I can really learn. And, may be sometime in future I might open a Boutique of mine, but not at the moment.  

Among the international designers, I like Roberto Cavalli. I just love that guy and he does the best of Animal Prints and I am really crazy about them. And my friends know that I am a complete psyche on them. Recently when they went to Macau, they got me boots with Animal Prints. And also I do have a bag and some hair pins also with animal prints (can you believe it). But it doesn't mean that my wardrobe is filled with clothes of those prints.

Among Indian designers, I like Tarun Tahiliani because his Sarees are really amazing. And one actress whose dressing I am in awe of is Sonam Kapoor. She has a great sense of dressing and I love the way she carries herself. My friends had been talking about the costumes of the movie Aisha so much that I finally watched the movie, just to see the costumes and they were indeed stunning.

My dressing style depends on the occasion or the place I go. If it is a hangout with friends,  I prefer a normal T-shirt and casuals but if it's a party, I prefer a dress. But if it is a family function,  I am compelled to wear a traditional one because there is a family etiquette to follow, even if my family is really cool about it. Personally I do not like wearing very short dresses as my legs are heavy and hence I prefer short or mid length dresses. But ultimately I feel that the best dress comb would be a denim and a Kurti because you have nothing to worry after wearing it. That's the most decent and friendly attire, better than even the T-shirt and jeans.

My favourite colour keeps on changing, but my ultimate colour is White. When I visited Jaipur recently, I bought two white Kurtis' and my mom was cribbing at them.

When complexion is concerned, bright colours look really good on people who are really fair, but at the same time people with dark complexion have to make sure that they do not wear bright colours, as it will make them look even darker.    

I am a super shopaholic and I curse my production team whenever they do not give me a break and to add on, if there is a mall near the sets I waste all my money in shopping whenever they give me a break. My favourite shopping destination is Bandra and Palladium and I am not particular about brands. I make it a point to buy branded bags, shoes and denims because we tend to use them for a long time. Brand is insignificant for me when it comes to Kurtis and T-shirts and all that matters is, whether it is looking and nice and comfortable to be in.

Well, Additi really knows what she wants and we really hope that you open up your boutique in the near future.
