Akshay Kumar Can Carry off Almost Anything

Designer Rick Roy has styled Akshay Kumar for his upcoming movie Gabbar says that the actor has an amazing positive energy and can carry off almost anything with style. The designer has earlier worked with the 46-year-old actor for Shirish Kunder’s film “Joker.”

"I think you can give Akshay anything and everything and he carries it off like a dream. This time I was less paranoid around him in comparison to working with him during ‘Joker’ as it was my first movie and he is a big star. That time Akshay figured out what I was going through and asked me to stop being stressed," Roy said. "Akshay is very pleasant and has an amazing positive energy. He appreciated me and is very encouraging," the designer added.

Ricky Roy has also styled Malaika Arora Khan for a song in Arbaaz Khan’s production “Dolly Ki Doli.” "This song was a little difficult to crack because it is Indian and slightly rustic; the options were limited and we were very clear we did not want to do anything similar to what has been done before by anyone. Doing this song was a challenge," Roy said. "Item songs are tricky. There is a very thin line between stunning and vulgar and one needs to add the right amount of sensuality to the song without making it cheap," he added.

About working in Bollywood, the designer says, "I have a long way to go. I would love to work with Imtiaz Ali. I love the way his films have such distinctive characters. There is scope to design for those characters. I want to work with Anurag Kashyap. I love the dark love stories and the gray worlds he creates. I definitely want to work with Karan Johar, Farah Khan, Mohit Suri and Remo D’Souza."
