They are heroes, they are hubbies, they are dads and they are also men of style. Father's day is here, and here's a toast to all our Bollywood style junkie dads.
1) Akshay Kumar
The Khiladi Kumar is fashion forward and manifests a cutting edge, bold and rugged style statement. When the father of one was signed as the brand ambassador of Levi's jeans, things definitely changed for the better. Twinkle also seems to have rubbed her amazing fashion skills on him post marriage.
Akki's not a trend follower, his style statement â€œWhat I wear is fashionâ€. While recently at Holiday promo's we saw Akki sporting unleveled pants i.e. one leg rolled up to the knee at more than three occasions. We don't sure seem to be a fan of the trend however it seems only Akshay can make tattered trends like that work.
2) Shahrukh Khan
He's not called the King Khan of Bollywood just for nothing, it's because he does live life king size. SRK's brand hooked and gets put off by ill fitted jeans. Aviators, straight cut jeans, fitted v-necks and tuxedos make up most of his wardrobe.
In an interview to Mid-day the father of two mentioned he'd always go with black since no one can tell if he's repeating a garment. Naresh Rohira has been the superstar's designer for the past 20 years, and has stitched more than 1000 black and white suites for him. The dimpled Khan does not prefer accessories, but he's never almost seen without his watch. Rick Springfield and Bruce Springsteen are his fashion idols.

3) Hrithik Roshan
Apart from having the hottest package and sun kissed looks, Hrithik is also an ardent style follower, to the extent that he recently collaborated with Myntra.com to launch his brand HRX which will only be sold on the online shopping portal.
This stylish father was voted as the ultimate style icon in an online survey conducted by Yahoo! India.
While his staple reamins Jackets, his style mentor seemed to be his ex-wife. Roshan confessed having times when he thought he looks uber cool, but Sussanne would send him back to change into something apt.
4) Saif Ali Khan
The Nawab of Pataudi exhibits a rare combination of maturity and boyish charm even after nurturing two children. From suave suits to t-shirts paired with tracks or Bermudas, Saif is an extravagant stylist to the extent that he cleans his shoes with champagne for he finds it therapeutic. One of the reasons for successfully wooing off Bebo was his intoxicating style quotient.
Chhote Nawab can't get enough of t-shirts and Jodhpuri pants and runs to his favorite Indian Raghuvindar Rathore when in doubt. He also is a loyal customer of Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci and Tom Ford.
Shoes: - Berluti and John Lobb

5) Arjun Rampal
Arjun Rampal always strikes the perfect chord when it comes to style. His trademark long manes hairdo remains perpetual till date. The hot father's style mentor is Rohit Bal as it was him who discovered Rampal. The designer considers Rampal his muse till today. The staple in Arjun Rampal has always been casual t-shirts or suave blazers with crisp shirts paired with denims. Rampal boasts of being an Armani loyalist.
Jeans and jackets: - Diesel
Shades: - Prada
6) Amitabh Bachchan
He might be a grand-father now however no one can spell style like Mr. Bachchan. The veteran actor is a style perfectionist. While his suits are sourced from Gabbana, the fabric is imported from Italy, buttons from England and the thread from France. Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla are his fave designers.
The Bollywood megastar has also been named 'Timeless Style Icon' in the Mumbai's Most Stylish 2013 poll conducted by a leading daily.
