Shriya Saran: From South to North

Shriya Saran at Tiger Balm South Filmfare Awards on August 5th 2008 (4).JPGShriya Saran’s career in Bollywood went kaput and she’s not been able to get a career revival too as her comeback vehicles ‘Awaarapan’ and ‘Mission Istanbul’ tanked. Even her journey to Hollywood turned out to be fruitless with Ashok Amritraj’s non happening movie ‘The Other End of the Line’.

In the movie produced by K Sera Sera, Shriya essays the role of a simple effervescent girl from the land of Punjab.

In the movie, her designer Falguni Thakore has given her gorgeous and vivid colours and she’s also flaunting the traditional Phulkari embroidery.

The designer has said, “With Shriya, I had an advantage of a naturally very graceful girl with a beautiful complexion. I used a lot of chiffons, georgettes and breezy fabrics that added to the feminine styling for her look. It was a beautiful experience to re-create the Punjabi jooti’s and jhoomka’s and the little detailing with the parandi’s et al to complete the entire Punjab di kudi feel. The Northern influence was incorporated in the styling and designing of her costumes. Antique silver kurta buttons on short kurti’s, lace salwar’s and dogri’s make up her silhouette for the wardrobe.”

Now that’s quite a makeover and should suit Shriya looks too. Now whether she actually makes it in B-Town after this or not is another story altogether.
