Ethnic to boho, quirky to suave — these young actors of Bollywood are experimenting with their wardrobe and are taking men’s fashion to a new level. The style diaries of Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ishaan Khatter, Sunny Kaushal, Abhimanyu Dassani and Rohit Saraf are taking the internet by storm.

Siddhant Chaturvedi in denims and tee is everyday fashion done right. Along with white sneakers, a watch and that smile, the 29-year-old actor who debuted with the sitcom Life Sahi Hai on YouTube in 2016, sure knows how to impress.
He also looks dapper in a tux with a twist. The blingy, green velvet Gaurav Gupta suit and black buttons on the corduroy shirt add an extra edge to this formal look. And in a printed relaxed fit shirt, Bunty Jr. from Varun V. Sharma’s Bunty Aur Babli 2 looks ready for some beach therapy.

The Kaushal siblings know how to make hearts throb. Katrina Kaif’s dapper brother-in-law’s fashion choices are as sensational as his Instagram name ‘sunsunnykhez’.
Layer it up like Sunny Kaushal in a solid black jacket and denim with a black printed shirt and white sneakers, or add a zebra block shirt for a fun twist.
The Hurdang actor’s dhoti pants and shimmery jacket – by Shantanu and Nikhil — are just right for summer parties. The statement jewellery adds to the charm.
Ishaan Khatter @ishaankhatter/Instagram
Shahid Kapoor’s younger sibling, who played the lead in Mira Nair’s A Suitable Boy, is breaking fashion stereotypes. The flower power T-shirt is not just cool but also a strong statement on breaking gender barriers in dressing up. Mixing smart casuals with some party dressing in a shiny Falguni and Shane Peacock jacket, Ishaan is all set to steal hearts.
The 26-year-old, who will next be seen in Raja Krishna Menon’s Pippa alongside Mrunal Thakur, knows how to balance comfortable pants with a classic white shirt. Messy hair and a sleek chain complement Ishaan’s a-day-by-the-river look.
Rohit Saraf @rohitsaraf/Instagram
Netflix’s Mismatched actor Rohit Saraf’s style picks are also sharp and experimental. The indie-motif kurta in blue or getting party-ready in a basic black co-ord and embroidered jacket, Rohit has some solid notes to share on how to ace the boy-next-door and festive looks with equal ease.
Rohit in colourful reflective tracks from the gender fluid brand Bloni, combat boots and an off-white hand-knitted Margn T-shirt — cool, isn’t it?
Abhimanyu Dassani @abhimanyud/Instagram
Abhimanyu Dassani, the son of Maine Pyar Kiya actress Bhagyashree, has carved a niche for himself with his performances in films like Meenakshi Sundareshwar and Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.
Abhimanyu’s monotone beige shirt and checked pants combo is a summer fashion inspiration. During the promotions for Meenakshi Sundareshwar, he turned up in a Kunal Rawal oversized shirt, straight fit pants and a grey jacket, with sneakers to seal the deal. And a monochrome layered ensemble with matching shoes is what style looks like when it’s all about comfort.
