    No fashion brands in Dostana
    It's out. The look for Dostana, the fun-packed romcom about three friends is out and the three actors in the lead - Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra are sporting the Yankee look.

    Set in urban America, the look, created by Aki Narula and Manish Malhotra, will be light and summery in keeping with the lighthearted tone of the film.

    And unlike Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kal Ho Naa Ho and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, wherein designer brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Louis Vinton made their presence felt, there are no heavyweight fashion brands starring in this movie.

    Says director Tarun Mansukhani, who was first assistant on Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham... and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, "Dostana has a very young feel.

    Both John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan's clothes have been designed by Aki Narula, and Priyanka Chopra's by Manish Malhotra.

    The designers who started working on the clothes a year before the shooting began, did some research on the kind of clothes youngsters would be wearing a year later and came up with the fabulous designs." He added that John and Abhishek have been given diversely different looks and clothes.

    "You will see John as never before in trendy t-shirts and shorts, while Abhishek will be attired in bright shirts and scarves.

    Besides the beachwear that is being talked about, Priyanka who plays a working girl in the film will also adorn very smart office wear comprising shorts, and dresses.

    All clothes have a very casual and chic look as the story is set in urban America. No big brands names are associated with the clothes," says the debutant director.

    Manish Malhotra says, "I have designed chic and trend setting glamorous shots that can be worn to parties, dinners as well as office as they are in vogue. Otherwise in films generally shorts are always in blue denim or white and worn only in sports."

    A major part of the film was shot in Miami, and the shooting is now complete, except for an item song which will be canned on the three main artistes, in a 10 day shoot in September. Dostana is due for release in November.
