Simmi Khanna, 28, is the most sensible girl in all of Safdarjung. She just cannot help it. Good sense is to Simmi what his handlebar is to Sunil Sethi – the two are inseparable.

The incorporation of the hoodie into festive Indian outfits is just too good, I say. As a young Indian, I straddle different worlds and this allows me to be both #thuglife and #sanskari.

Just pop that hood and keep the aashirwads coming.
