If she looked gorgeous as a south Indian girl in “Chennai Express”, Deepika Padukone stuns with her latest Gujarati girl avatar in “Ram Leela”. The actress feeling thankful to the designer Anju Modi because her costumes helped her get into the character in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s latest directorial venture.
“Anju has done a fabulous job considering this is her first feature film…I felt in the character the minute I wore the clothes. I felt like Leela,” said the actress here in an interview.
“I think that is the most important aspect when a designer comes on board. It’s so important to allow the actor to feel like the character,” added the actress who also appreciated Modi’s understanding of colours and cuts.
Set in the backdrop of Gujarat, the film is said to be an adaptation of Shakespeare’s epic love story “Romeo and Juliet”, which will see Deepika romancing Ranveer Singh when the film comes out on theatre on Nov 29. As the audience had previously witnessed a glimpse of cultural costumes in most of the Bansali’s movies like Devdas, Black etc, it will be quite interesting for the makers to draw the attention of people towards the typical Gujarati girl.
