While Deepika Padukone stole many a heart with her ethereal costumes in the first look of Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor’s look too has become the talk of the town with his lavish regalia, fit body and full beard.
Designers Rimple and Harpreet Narula explain that designing Shahid’s costumes was a tedious job. The designers sourced organic fabrics from Rajasthan that were then embroidered by hand by 22 local artisans. They have used pure muslin cloth as the base, and then used vegetable dye or hand dye. While they tried to use hues that are associated with masculinity, they also had to balance it with brighter colours, since Rajasthani outfits are colorful.
The four month grueling process took them to the museums of Jaipur and Ahmedabad. The designers would often collect old fabrics, or buy antiques like brooch or pins from flea markets. They have used these trinkets in Padmavati.
Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions will present Padmavati with direction and music by Sanjay LeelaBhansali. The film will release in cinemas on 1st December, 2017.
