Costume Designer Anu Vardhan, the woman behind superstar Rajinikanth's stylish outfits in Kabali, has said the star actor knows how to carry off anything in style.
"He (Rajinikanth) is very confident. While many of the younger
stars are particular about what they wear, Rajini sir is not scared
to wear what we give him and he can carry off anything in style.
That is actually a relief for any designer," Anu said in her
interview to Firstpost.
Talking about the experience of working with one of Asia's
biggest superstars, she has said, "He is the nicest person to work
with. He has absolutely no hang-ups, and always goes with the
director's instructions. Rajini sir was very open to working with
younger people. He was very encouraging. He would want us to give
The colours and textures were selected with a purpose while
designing Rajini's clothes for the film.
"We have used more of white, blues and lot of greys. It looks
nice on him and I thought we will stick to the same colour
palettes. He wears a few formals, but it's more of casual jackets.
I deliberately used them because the textures will look good on an
older person. It gives a very sophisticated and dramatic effect," she has said.
She has also said that two different patterns were used, keeping
in mind the old and young Rajini.
"We have used muted colours for the older Rajinikanth. The
younger version of Rajini will be seen wearing colourful and
printed shirts. I like his retro look. Rajini sir has carried it
off so well. He just completely transformed into that role and that
caught me by surprise. He just walks that way. He was suddenly all
pumped up with energy," Anu told Firstpost.
