Amrita Arora who's normally seen in sexy hi-fashion outfits turns de-glam in Atul Agnihotri's Hello. The actress wears only salwaar-kameezes in the film designed by the producer's wife (also Salman Khan's sister Alvira). The character essayed by Arora is called Radhika, "She's a simple and shy middle-class girl, who is completely dominated by my mother-in-law and husband (Arbaaz Khan). I do everything they want me to do, as I cannot defy them. Radhika turns into a gharelu housewife who wears salwar-kameez even though she works in a trendy call center," reveals Amu.
The entire look and styling of all the six characters including Salman Khan has been done by Alvira Agnihotri and Ashley Rebello. "The de-glam look is quite unlike what I have done before. Initially, I was a bit hesitant but Alvira and Atul convinced me. Baby (Alvira) sourced out my outfits which are mostly Lucknowi chikan, chiffons and Patiala salwars in patchwork with short kurtis and embroidered dupattas." She will be seen sporting sindoor, bindis, bangles, and a mangalsutra.
Amrita adds that though she can relate to Radhika's stress, she could never be as meek or subdued like her. "With me what you see is what you get. I wouldn't change myself for anyone. They have to respect me for what I am. And rather than resorting to pills, I would talk my problems through. Radhika is a far cry from me! I am a chatty person. I would talk the issue out and not let it eat me up."
Alvira Agnihorti says, "Amu's look was conservative yet young, so we had one main look brought in from Lucknow with bigger holes, dyed it, gave it a lining of contrasting bright colour and another was a patiala style salwar with a badla where a bit of gotha was added. Atul said it must show that Radhika has made an effort to fit into her in-law's environment."
