Anushka Sharma, is all set to gear up as her third film of 2018. Sui Dhaaga: Made in India is all set to release next month. She will be seen with Varun Dhawan in the film. For Sui Dhaaga, both Anushka and Varun have gone complete desi.
A saree-clad, no-make up look of Anushka Sharma has grabbed eyeballs as she has never done this type of role before. Anushka said that the role is very special to her and shared the idea behind her simple look.
The Pari actress said, “I love Mamta’s look! It’s so simple and so different from how audiences have seen me in movies. I’m thankful to the audiences who have loved Mamta after seeing the trailer and full marks to Darshan and my make-up artist Clover Wootton for making Mamta raw, real and relatable.
From the pallu over my head, to the dhaaga that I wear around my neck to the decision to go completely without make-up, all this has created this character. The best part was that it took flat 20 minutes to get into Mamta’s look. Mamta will always be a very, very special role in my filmography.”
Her costume designer Darshan Jalan also shared about the kind of sarees Anushka wears in the film. Darshan shared, “It was clear from the word go that Anushka’s character would wear synthetic sarees primarily because they are cheap, but also because they dry quickly after a wash.”
The designer shared an anecdote of how he came up with THE Mamta look and who inspired him. “I have vivid memories of a lady coming to our house every Saturday to collect donation for the local temple.
She always wore synthetic sarees and covered her head. It was not only a tradition but also served as a shield from the heat. Memories like these became reference points,” added the costume designer.
