On the set with Waris of House of Waris and Spike Lee

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Last time I saw Waris he was off to work on the latest Spike Lee   film, Inside Man. Waris plays a bank clerk. I had asked him to send me a few photographs from the set. The movie wrapped a few days ago. Other members of the cast include Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, Waris Ahluwalia and House of Waris spokesman….unofficial of course, Willem Dafoe.


The top image is Waris in the make up trailer and there you have Spike Lee wearing House of Waris. In the end he bought the horn ring and the enameled skull. On his right hand he is wearing the white gold and diamond skull ring. He’s totally decked out in House of Waris.

The film is scheduled to come out next summer in the states.

He is still obsessed with cars and drives them as an art project.
