It is rare to see Vishal Bhardwaj talk about fashion and style but the director says his views on the subject have evolved over the years and reflect his journey in cinema and music.

The 49-year-old director, who donned the hat of a style speaker at Blenders Pride Reserve event here, feels while fashion is more external, style is an expression of inner self.

“I think Mahatma Gandhi had the best style in the world. He was so simple. Fashion can be external but style is more of an internal expression. My style is about the way I have evolved in the business of films and music.

“I have made my own distinctive space and that reflects in my films, characters and their language. Coming from a small town, Hindi medium school to composing for Broadway musical, was a big journey for me. It is like travelling from North to South Pole,” he said.

Bhardwaj’s films are known for their unique subject, language and the minute detailing that was evident even in his last outing “Haider”.

Set in the Kashmir of ’90s and a modern day adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’, the film brought the lifestyle of that era to life beautifully on-screen.

When asked about the costumes in the movie, Bhardwaj said, “The shawl that Tabu was wearing in the wedding scene was very expensive. There was an old family and they had a treasure of traditional stuff. They lent us the shawl for the scene,” he said.
