Mumbai: After the dhoti-clad look in his last period film ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’, Bollywood`s star actor Abhishek Bachchan has become quite a pro in tying one and displayed his expertise to Italians on a trip to Florence.

"When Abhishek was in Florence, people requested him to show how to wear a dhoti (the wraparound waist-wear). So he actually showed them," a source close to the unit said.

"He also went on to say that he loves wearing Indian wear a lot and as and when he gets the opportunity to wear he doesn`t miss it," the source added.

Abhishek, son of Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan, and who is married to another star and former Miss World, Aishwarya Rai, travelled to Florence to be a part of Florentine label Ferragamo`s `Shoes for a Star` project, becoming the first Indian actor to receive the made-to-order Tramezza shoes from Ferragamo.

Abhishek, his wife and father endorse several leading national and international brands.
