It seems that the designer was very excited when Hema mentioned about her latest venture. The actress explained the role of Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia in this biopic directed by Gulbahar Singh. Neeta is known for giving Aishwarya Bachchan the stunning look of Jodhabai in Ashutosh Gwarikar's Jodhaa Akbar. She has proved her mettle as one of the finest costume designers in Hindi film industry.
''Hemaji has always fascinated me as a personality,'' says Neeta. The designer had to work 48hrs non-stop for the final look of Rajmata. ''Actually we both had time constraints so I had to work round the clock to give Hemaji the look of the Rajmata. I did my own research and Hemaji also gave me a reference book which helped me a lot. I tried to give her a different look in Baghbaan and people loved her the way she looked in the film. Hope even this time people will like it,'' she says.
Incidentally, it was Neeta Lulla who gave Hema Malini the stunning look in Ravi Chopra's Baghbaan which is tagged as Hema's comeback film.
The shooting of the film Ek Thi Rani Aisi Bhi will start from end of November. The film is produced by Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia Smriti Trust.
