Footwear fetish, it seems, is not just a woman’s thing. Actor Sonu Sood can give any Bollywood beauty a run for her money with his enviable collection of over 300 shoes. And, he hasn’t called it a day, yet. “I recently bought more pairs, and there are two suitcases full of shoes lying unpacked at home. I have compartments and bags full of shoes. At this rate, I will soon have to buy another flat just to flaunt my collection,” he says.
Interestingly, Sonu has found an admirer of his immaculate dress sense in Sushmita Sen, who, along with him and Shekhar Suman, will be seen judging Arun Sheshkumar and Pankita Sadrani’s reality show Comedy Superstar. “We have a common fetish for shoes. Sushmita often tells me that no actor has a shoe collection like mine. She also says that unlike most men, I have great taste in fashion. Coming from a beauty queen like her, it is definitely a compliment,” he says.
In fact, the two have bonded so well, that they would often end up colour coordinated during the shoot. Sonu says, “Though unplanned, the colour of her gown would often match that of my tie or pocket square. Slowly, it became like a game for us; we would dress up and eagerly wait to check out each other’s attires,” he sums up. Arun Sheshkumar and Pankita Sardani the producer duo are young and dynamic with fresh ideas and the show promos have already created lot of buzz.
