Mumbai: With Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan will be making her Bollywood debut. In the film the actress who’s paired opposite Sushant Singh Rajput hails from a small town.
While filmmakers usually rope in costume designers to design the wardrobe of the characters, the makers of this film roped in ace fashion designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla to design Sara’s costumes in the film. One of the oldest and popular designers of the country Abu-Sandeep are known for their glamorous Indian outfits. The duo has designed clothes for almost all the actresses of Bollywood including Anushka Sharma, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sonam Kapoor and many others.
Talking more about their association with the project, a source informs, “Sara’s look in the film is very ethnic since she is a rural girl. Instead of getting a costume designer on board the makers roped in fashion designers Abu-Sandeep as they wanted her look to stand out. The designer duo has time and again surprised people with their art and the makers wanted them to give the best look to Sara.”
The source further adds, “The other reason why Abu-Sandeep came on board is that this is Sara’s first film and the designer duo is like family to her. The two share a great rapport with her mother Amrita.”
While Sara flaunts Abu-Sandeep in the film, co-star Sushant Singh Rajput’s look has been designed by costume designer Shruti Kapoor.
For the unawares, the last time Abu-Sandeep worked on a film was in 2002. The duo did costumes for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas.
Janhvi Kapoor flaunted Manish Malhotra in her debut film
Something similar was seen in case of Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor’s film debut. The actress who made an entry in to Hindi cinema through Karan Johar’s production venture Dhadak, flaunted Manish Malhotra. While the ace fashion designer did glamorous Rajasthani outfits for Janhvi’s character, her co-star Ishaan Khattar’s wardrobe was apparently done by costume designers Natascha Charak and Nikita Mohanty.
