New Delhi: Ranveer Singh's madcap, quirky, maverick
style is a fashion genre of its own but, excuse us, the very jhakaas Anil Kapoor was there firs
t. The 60-year-old actor made the most stylish use of Throwback Thursday, sharing a photograph of himself from what appears to be the Eighties or Nineties - and can we say, very respectfully, that we're thankful his fire engine red ensemble didn't make into this decade. However, that is some serious swag. A look at the caption will reveal that the throwback picture is actually a challenge addressed to three actors - Anil Kapoor's nephew Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer Singh (him of the outre wardrobe) and Varun Dhawan. Mr Kapoor's post reads: "I've been breaking fashion boundaries way before you guys! Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Varun Dhawan, I challenge you to beat this. Up for it?" If you will take our advice, Ranveer, Arjun and Varun, just concede defeat before you even start.
Because how do you even match this, leave alone top it?
