Bollywood actor & model Zulfi Syed has collaborated with his friend and cricketer Suresh Raina to open a snazzy clothes boutique in the latter’s hometown Ghaziabad.

Zulfi, who already owns a hi-end boutique called ‘Flo’ in Mumbai, has been doing roaring business, designing for top shots like Sahara supremo Subroto Roy and cricketers Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Raina.

Talking about his upcoming venture with Raina, Zulfi says, “I was wondering how to take my clothes business further, when we hit upon this idea. The boutique at Ghaziabad will only be the beginning of a clothesline chain which Raina and myself have dreamed of.”

Confirms Raina, "Zulfi is a very good friend and I'm looking forward to opening many more boutiques across North India. My hometown Ghaziabad has no such shops and I want to make my city more fashionable than what it is today. I dedicate my store to my birthplace. Our people all look good and have purchasing power too and I think since there are no fashion shops, they would want to visit my boutique all the more. And I don't play cricket for all 12 months. So when I'm not playing, I can spend my time looking after my business and develop it."

What’s more! If this new venture succeeds, then the enterprising duo also plans to start a cafĂ© business in Ghaziabad. Here’s wishing them the best.
