“Bharet used to be quite a conservative, even preppy dresser. He’s now very comfortable mixing Indian and Western styles, and he has the confidence and personality to pull off wearing something like a traditional sherwani with jeans. His wardrobe is a real fusion of both cultures. No one would ever say that he’s the suited, booted, and boring type.”

—Shagun Malhotra, Bharet’s sister and a financial-software CPA
