Nostalgia with Divya Seth Shah, “I was always dieting and starving myself to get thin”

Nostalgia with Divya Seth Shah, “I was always dieting and starving myself to get thin”

Arjun tells us that Mahika and Meera are in love with Arik. “The three of them have such a wonderful relationship. It’s always Mahu didi and Myru didi for Arik, nonstop!”

Does this give Arjun a sense of comfort?

“I don’t feel comfortable,” says Arjun, choosing his words carefully. “I feel lucky that something like that could happen. At first, it’s a bit embarrassing. You never thought you’d be in a situation like this, so you don’t know how you’re going to handle it. But, as Gabriella said, you know what a good upbringing is.” Really. Love means unconditional understanding, and my daughters showed it to me. And I’m glad Mehr allowed this to happen.”

Gabriella says, “It wasn’t love at first sight. We don’t have a really crazy romance. Our friendship is just a very organic kind of friendship”; outfit by dime. Charms by Peayrl (Sasha Jerram)

Given that Arjun had such an insight into the fashion industry, we ask how much help he is. “Arjun has a great eye, and he’s caring without being arrogant,” Gabriella says. “He will give me great feedback when I need it, and I won’t say anything when I don’t need to hear it.”

Is it a challenge or an advantage to be partnering with a famous guy like Arjun? “I don’t think it is,” Gabriella says. “My brand was eight years old when Arjun and I got together. Of course, some of his fans might have started following my business because of him. But no one told me we buy your clothes because we are fans of Arjun Rampal!”

My mother is actress Sushma Seth and Nani. The books I read, the movies I watched, my friends, my colleagues in the theater, and the directors also shaped my thoughts.
