She proved her acting chops in Cocktail, now Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone geared to set an example of professional dedication and sincerity.
The digital media has been abuzz since the actress posted the first film poster of her upcoming film Ram Leela, directed by Black director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. While the poster is doing the rounds on the internet, very few know the story behind the long ghagra (long skirt) Deepika has worn in the picture.
Designed by Anu Modi, the ghagra spotted by the leggie lass on her perfect figure weighed around 30kg and was 50 meters wide. Embroidered with the traditional designs of Kutch, Gujarat, the designer didn’t compromise on anything to match up Bhansali’s expectations and standards.
In a media statement, Anu was all praises for Deepika. She said, “No one else could have carried it as gracefully as she does. She is slim-waisted, tall and looks gorgeous in this avatar. Dressing her up in this style has been a dream come true,”
Commendable, we say Ms. Padukone!
