If Deepika Padukone looked gorgeous as a south Indian girl in “Chennai Express“, she stuns with her latest Gujarati girl avatar in “Ramleela“. The actress thanks designer Anju Modi because her costumes helped her get into the character in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s latest directorial venture.
Anju Modi has done a fabulous job considering this is her first feature film… I felt in the character the minute I wore the clothes. I felt like Leela. I think that is the most important aspect when a designer comes on board. It’s so important to allow the actor to feel like the character.
…said Deepika Padukone, the actress who also appreciated Anju Modi’s understanding of colors and cuts.
Set in the backdrop of Gujarat, the film is said to be an adaptation of Shakespeare’s epic love story “Romeo and Juliet“, which will see Deepika Padukone as Leela romancing Ram, played by Ranveer Singh when the film comes out Nov 29.
