When asked about prisoner clothes for an actor, Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh said “Not a bad idea”. He walked down the ramp in a designer version of prison uniform along with handcuffs at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW).
The actor, who will be seen playing a prisoner in his forthcoming film Jail, was wearing designer Reynu Taandon creation in an off white short kurta, pyjama with minimal black embroidery and sequins that added a dash of glamour to the outfit.
When asked Neil about how he felt about wearing designer prisoner clothes, he said: "It's different but nice. It's not a bad idea to get Reynu to redesign the uniform for jail inmates."
He was accompanied by co-stars Mugdha Godse and Manoj Bajpayee apart from director Madhur Bhandarkar -- they all walked the ramp to promote ‘Jail’.
The actor pointed out how the designer had taken special care to add a bright yellow strip on the kurta's sleeve - a symbol on the jail uniform that denotes lifetime imprisonment for a convict.
"She (Reynu) has done authentic research to design just two garments for us. The yellow strip denotes life imprisonment in a real jail and our characters also go through it. She was the one who thought of making us wear handcuffs and gave us fake bruise marks through make-up to give the real feel," said Neil.
When asked whether she enjoyed making prison clothes for the actors, the designer said: "I had such amazing prisoners to dress. I basically designed what I wanted to and they look like hot prisoners."
Backstage, the model-turned-actress was busy teaching Bhandarkar, Manoj and Neil how to catwalk.
An embarrassed Mugdha was quick to clarify: "I was not teaching them. I was just giving them a few tips."
