Sony Entertainment Television’s fan favourite gameshow, ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati – Season 15’ is all set to premiere on 14th August at 9:00 PM. Over the years, viewers have seen its host, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, don many show-stopping outfits that have been the talk of the town. From three-piece suits, bowties, stylish scarves, and more, stylist Priya Patil is the one-woman army who has been instrumental in making television’s favourite host look dapper every season! While the knowledge-based reality show will see some ‘badlaav’ with new elements being added to the gameplay, Priya too will style Big B with evolving fashion trends that the megastar pulls off with elan.
Speaking about the ‘badlaav’ in Mr. Bachchan’s look this season, Priya Patil said, “For the 15th Season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, my mood board included the brief of keeping the look ‘new’ and ‘fresh.’ Keeping the classic look intact, we have gone a step ahead and added newer elements to it. Sir will be seen in classic three-piece suits, Bandhgalas and Jodhpuris, but I am introducing a ‘Colour Play’ which will be a contrasting combination of colours. To elaborate, the waistcoats will have colour patterns like wine against navy, black and white, powder blue and navy, pinstripes with plains, checks with plains, and more. When it comes to his shirts, I’ve introduced small but evident features which include contrast piping with the collars, different broaches that stand out, and lapel pins that accentuate and complete the overall look. On the classic Jodhpuris, we have added a special drape like a shawl, and completing the look will be a broach holding it together.”
Talking about her experience of styling Big B for KBC she shares, “Sir (Amitabh Bachchan) is a legend and I have learnt a lot by watching him over the years. His dedication, professionalism, and his attention to detail are what I have absorbed from him, and it reflects in all of his attires. I always tell everybody that Sir does not need a stylist, he is a style icon in himself. Clothes don’t make the man; the man makes the clothes; I have always believed that. Whatever he wears, he makes it a trend and he has always been an inspiration to all generations.”
Tune in to watch Kaun Banega Crorepati – Season 15, starting 14th August, every Monday to Friday at 9 pm only on Sony Entertainment Television.
