T-Series latest production Darling will see Isha Koppikar essaying a very demure and down-to-earth look.
Isha Koppikar burst into Bollywood with the hit item number 'Khallas' in Ram Gopal Varma's Company. In her latest movie Darling which is also incidentally directed by Ram Gopal Varma, she has gone to the other end of the spectrum with a typical middle class Indian housewife look in sarees sans make-up.
This look which was put together by Komal Shahani required a lot of thought as Isha has always had a glamorous image. But Komal found Isha to be completely in tune with what she wanted. "Isha was totally in her character and I found her very easy to mould." The character's look required an absolutely homely image which is why the sarees, bindi and entire look has been well co-ordinated to give an authentic Maharashtrian look. Komal says, "Keeping Isha's complexion in mind, I gave her colours like Aubergine, Scarlet Red and other bright colours. Her character is soft in the movie which is contrasted with vibrant coloured clothes. I?ve tried to maintain the typical housewife look but with a hint of style."
Infact so impressed was the designer with Isha's comfort level that she vouches Isha can carry Indian clothes much better.
Well knowing how 'Khallas' set a precedent in Bollywood and made item numbers the 'in' thing, lets hope Darling also works the same magic for Isha once again!
