The whole idea behind Force IX was to make it a brand that caters to style and comfort. When we started working on this brand, little did we know that this would become such a significant part of us. Each and every member of our team has worked on it with so much sincerity, passion and love. Their hard work will be seen in the littlest of details in our garments," said Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar in a media statement.
