Roshan Ullas embarked on an acting career through Mazhavil Manorama's Nayika Nayakan programme and now he is already a couple of films old. He is currently shooting for a web series in Thrissur.
An automobile engineering graduate, Roshan was not so keen on acting as a career though he had some modelling stints during his academic years. Films happened to him by providence.
As far as dressing is concerned Roshan says that he belongs to the old school. He also likes floral shirts and is deeply in love with formals.
"While in school I used to be trendy but by the time I reached the college I lost interest in trending styles of the time," Roshan says.
But denim is his all-time favourite.
"In fact, I am ready for any kind of wear for the characters. For example, I am doing the role of a doctor in a serial right now. So it's always formals, but after the shoot, I go for jeans and denim shirts," says the actor who is well versed in Tamil since he was born brought up in Coimbatore.
Roshan reveals that he has a fashion design studio that creates new designs for blazers and apparel for men and women. According to him, the fashion outfits should be the ones, which one can wear daily and are economical, even though they showcase art. Mission Moda, a design studio and outfit store that Roshan runs in partnership with his friend in Coimbatore sticks to that approach.
For Roshan two most indispensable things that vouch for a macho look are a shirt and shoes. "I conduct personality development and grooming sessions and there I always ask people to prefer a shirt over a T-shirt or any other outfit and always go for shoes," he says. He is of the opinion that no other footwear can give the macho look that a pair of shoes, whether it's sneakers, formal or a pair of sports shoes.
As for the role that a dress assumes for the personality of a person, Roshan believes in the Tamil maxim, 'Aalai pathi aadai pathi,' which means a person's other half is his or her dress. He says that an individual's attire carries his or her attitude, character and taste. It is instrumental in generating the first impression of a person.
Roshan was once brand specific but now he prefers stitching his own clothes. "One reason is I no more stick to any brand now and then it makes me happy to wear an outfit from our own designer outlet. Above all it's cheaper," he laughs.
