Devgn takes home the Rs 2 lakh-worth custom-made glares he sports in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji
Ajay Devgn, a collector of sunglasses, wears gold and platinum custom-built glares in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji. Ajay loved them so much that he decided to keep them for himself after shooting ended.
Devgn's stylist Ana Singh sourced the sunglasses. She says, "Ajay plays a character in DTBHJ where he suddenly becomes aware of himself and decides to re-style himself.

Normally, I get him glares costing R15000 but this time, we only needed two really costly ones."
Ana adds that she had to order them over the Internet from a special manufacturer in Italy. "The gold and platinum glares cost over two lakh each and are handcrafted, bulletproof, waterproof and unbreakable.
They match his character. Producer Kumar Mangat insisted we style AJ the best way possible and though these were extremely expensive, he insisted on getting them for him."
Ana, who has designed Ajay's clothes for over eight years, says, "He loved the sunglasses so much that after the shooting got over he kept them for himself.
Ajay loves glares and shoes and has over 200 glares that he's been collecting for many years from various designers and countries.
His many glares include brands like Paul Smith, Bottega, Armaani and Chrome Hearts. These DTBHJ glares are high-end, customised collectors items.
In London Dreams AJ wore 15 glares while in Sanjay Dutt's Rascals, he wears seven. He's very choosy about what he wears."
