Bipasha Basu wears burkha for the first time
Bipasha Basu wore a burkha for the first time. Apart from this, she also experimented with her hairstyle and changed the colour of her eyes.
The actress plays a character called Aziza, who is a modern politically active and aware, Kashmiri girl. Bips says,
“She is not dainty so don’t expect a Kashmir-ki-kali kind of look.”
In the film, she wears plain salwar kurtas with PT shoes, and her head is covered with dupatta at all times, “I also wore lots of printed, colourful dupattas with plain earthy-coloured salwar kurtas. Everything was loose and oversized. I could wear nothing fitted in this film,” and i wear no make up for most part, save the kaajal.
Designer speak Rocky S says,
“Since the character is a complex strong individual, my motive was to portray Aziza’s essence to the tee. My research included a lot of intricate detailing taking into consideration the kind of fabrics and colours that are preferred by Kashmiri locals. Tweed phirans in dull earthy tones along with kurtas were used to show a clear distinction over the seasons through autumn to winter. Bipasha’s accessories and burkhas were authentically purchased from Kashmiri shops in and around Lal Chowk and Dal Lake.
