Deepika Padukone dressed in Rajasthani finery for ‘Padmavati’!
Deepika Padukone will truly be a sight to behold in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati'! Essaying the role of the Rani Padmavati, the star will be seen in her most beautiful avatar yet.
Fitting of a celebrated Queen of Padmavati’s stature, Deepika’s look in the film has been meticulously worked on by Delhi-based designers Rimple and Harpreet Narula.
The duo went through an intense research process that involved several trips to the Jaipur and Calico museums, studying various old textiles as well as old murals and miniature paintings to rightly capture the nuances of styling the lead cast - Deepika, Shahid, and Ranveer.
A glimpse at what’s in store, Deepika sports an extravagant lehenga in the first look of the film. The main motif of the lehenga, created using traditional zardozi, is the symbolic Tree of Life which again has connotations of divinity as well as man's connection to the cosmos, a warrior’s strength and resolve while the border of the lehenga has been derived from architectural details of Rajasthani palace windows and jharokhas.
The Odhnis of the ensemble has been styled in the traditional way that is still prevalent in the Mewar belt of Rajasthan.
