Fahad Ali Khan is the quintessential Bangalore boy, though born in Saudi Arabia. He went to Bishop Cotton Boys and later took a graduate course in commerce at Mahaveer Jain College. “I am just a normal guy who has a great passion for acting and big dreams for life,” says the model who has been in the industry for six years and will now debut as an actor with the Kannada film, Premaya Namaha. “Although I am very fluent in Kannada, I needed a lot of practise and hardwork to get my diction right, and now I am looking forward to the release of the film, “ he says.

Fahad started modelling in college. Once he got into the field, he decided to become an actor. “It was no cake walk for me and I had to face a lot of difficulties at the start. I am very thankful to my friends and family who stood by me and were very supportive through that time,” he says.

Fahad built his portfolio walking the ramp for many designers, especially at NIFT in 2009. He has done a photoshoot for Levis’ collection of Villa Itallia shirts by Prasad Bidapa.

Favourite designer: John Varvatos for his classic high style and punk taste.

On a bad hair: I just wear a cap and keep it casual and simple.

Personal style mantra: Anything smart, casual and black.

Favourite shopping hangouts: No favourites here. I buy anything anywhere that looks good to me and if I am confident that I can carry it well.

Favourite accessories: I just love my glares and watches collection.

Wardrobe must-haves: Black formal shirt, plain white tee, blue denims, leather jacket and boots.

Fashion pet peeves: Men wearing formal shirts with casual shorts. That’s not a very handsome look.
