KBC15: Stylist Priya Patil reveals the badlaav in Big B’s wardrobe

While the knowledge-based reality show will see some 'badlaav' with new elements being added, Priya too will style Big B with the evolving fashion trends.

Though actor Amitabh Bachchan is known for his interesting hosting style in Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), his dressing sense also grabs him a spotlight. Who can forget him in three-piece suits, bowties and stylish scarves? It is stylist Priya Patil, who should be credited for making the actor look dapper on screen. Patil has now revealed that since there are a few changes introduced in the upcoming season, the show host's wardrobe too has been given a makeover. Big B will be seen donning a new style statement.

"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," she shares.

The actor will also be seen flaunting new styles, patterns and trends. Talking about some of the interesting changes, Patil says, "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."

Kaun Banega Crorepati - Season 15 will start from August 14, every Monday to Friday at 9 pm on Sony Entertainment Television.
