Remember the good old days when people would wear jeans, a jumper and shoes to the airport? Some would even be seen in tracks and slippers but gone are those days when comfort during travel was the most important thing. Gosh, it feels like such a long time ago. Today, it’s all about trendy airport looks thanks to actors constantly being papped. The entry to the airport has turned into a runway and we spot all our Bollywood celebs dressed from head to toe to catch that flight.
While some actors enjoy dressing up, Rani Mukerji hilariously dissed the whole concept of airport fashion in a conversation with Anushka Sharma on India Today.
I understand the pressure that actors go through today because they are constantly judged. They are constantly judged even when they are going on a flight. Earlier, when you had to go to the airport, you prefer comfortable clothes especially after the security systems became so strict, people wanted to wear slippers and go but today you cannot imagine anyone wearing slippers and going on their flight because then people will say Look at her or him, they are wearing slippers. Everybody is getting judged. There are stylists who dress you up for the airport and I find it hilarious.
We say that in Bombay finding a shelter is the biggest thing, our houses are so small. I want to ask people where will we keep so many shoes and bags? I always imagine when we go for security check, those who wear belt and boots, how embarrassing it must be for them to remove them all and then wear it again in front of everybody.
