Mumbai, Oct 17 He finds Omar Abdullah stylish and thinks Rahul Gandhi could do with a haircut. But if celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim, who works with Bollywood's biggest stars, is given a chance to style up a politician, he says it would be Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"I would like to style up Mr. Narendra Modi. He is an interesting personality who can pull off an experimental look, I am sure. In fact, I think Rahul Gandhi needs a haircut," Aalim told IANS in an interview.
While most politicians flaunt the kurta-pyjama look, Aalim feels they should update their fashion wardrobes with stylish clothes.
"I find it really fake when someone starts wearing kurta-pyjama and donning boring looks because he/she is a politician. Why do you have to do that? Every individual is different; so they should style differently," he said, adding, "Omar Abdullah is quite stylish!"
Being an iconic stylist of Bollywood stars, Aalim has not only established his name but is also continuing the legacy of his father who styled legends like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Dilip Kumar, Sunil Dutt and Vinod Khanna.
IANS caught up with Aalim at the launch of TLC's "Style Inc. With Aalim Hakim", which premieres on October 20. The second season of the series features heartthrobs Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra, Aditya Roy Kapur, Ayushmann Khurrana, Tiger Shroff and the evergreen Sanjay Dutt, among others, who will be seen getting their looks transformed by Hakim for movies, photo shoots and ad films.
