"If I do an inventory, I think I own 300 pairs of shoes" : Sonu Sood


By Papri Das

Known for his chiseled body and action packed roles, Sonu Sood is the kind of actor that makes you root even for the villain. (Remember Dabangg?) Given his 'angry young man' image, it comes as a surprise when we found out that he is a self confessed shopaholic. 

After a two month hiatus from the maximum city, Sood is back in Mumbai and Exec Lifestyle caught up with him at Vogue Fashion's Night Out. Looking dapper in a black on black suit, he soon slipped into the crowd of celebrities inside a popular pub for the after party of the event, but not before answering a short Q&A on fashion with us.


What's your fashion mantra?

Wear what's comfortable and be confident in it. Don’t follow a fad blindly unless you want to experiment and are down for it. In events like these, you generally see a lot of people decked up for the occasion, but for me this occasion is all about meeting my friends. I was out of Mumbai for a few months and I am going to have a good time catching up.

Have you ever gone on a shopping spree?

Although I hold myself back here, but yes, there have been a few instances abroad where I have gone on a shopping spree. There was time during shoots when I over stacked myself with stuff I bought and I had nowhere to store them. Women are often teased for their love for shopping but it is definitely not exclusive to them.

What do you go gaga over in a store?

Shoes, shoes and more shoes. I am head over heels for a new pair of shoes. If I do an inventory of my wardrobe, I think there will be around 250 to 300 pairs of shoes at least.

What type of shoes do you prefer?

Depends on where I am headed to and what the occasion is. I like the good old classics, but off late I am experimenting with colours and patterns but within my comfort zone.

Would you go to a party wearing the wackiest pair of shoes?

Oh absolutely. I sometimes wear bright red converse shoes with formals. But then again, I need to be among people I hang out with.
