Gone are the days when celebrities were seen drooling over brands and dripping in big labels. There is a crop of actors who wear their style on their sleeve and speak their mind in an unconventional way! Guess who’s catching our attention with the indigenous Kolhapuri Chappals! Yes, the same chappals patronized since the 13th century by the Saudagars of Maharasthra and still remain in vogue. 700 years and counting, Kolhapuri chappals have ruled the roost as a chic style statement for those who seek to spike their casual and ethnic look with local handicraft. Jivaana puts together 5 celebrities who make us want to own a pair of Kolhapuris right now!
