However, she clarifies, “It’s not that I did that shoot to silence people or it gave me a high or a kick. When creative director Kshitij Kanaria approached me for the shoot, I was inspired by his passion and Crazy idea. I really did it for our love for fashion. I was kept in the loop on everything. Like, I was co-curating looks, I was on calls and [sharing inputs with] designers. Everything was done keeping me in mind and that’s how the shoot happened.

We had been talking for quite some time and were planning to do a shoot anyway, before Dirty Magazine came out. . I remember when I got her text, I said, ‘What the f***. Did Anita just message me?’ He was for a different shoot which didn’t work out. So, when it came to the magazine, I told him that this meant we had to collaborate. His judgment matters a lot when it comes to fashion She is a genius, the queen of fashion,” says Urfi.
