Sneak Peek: Anushka dons 35 kg gown in ‘Bombay Velvet’


A new still from Anurag Kashyap’s upcoming film, ‘Bombay Velvet’ was released and the new image shows the ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ girl in a heavy weight gown of 35 kgs. The lovely green and golden gown was designed by Niharika Bhasin Khan. The actress is playing a jazz singer and the scene is the opening scene of Anushka. She is singing at a party.

“The scene sees her behind the mic in a club. It took her two-and-half hours to dress and two assistants had to carry the train for her. Thankfully she did not have to dance in it,” says Niharika.

The National Award-winning designer, who has designed Anushka’s outfits in 'Band Baaja Baraat' says that weight was not the only challenge they faced.

“The prep was on for a year but the dress was damaged in transit. The upper half was ruined in the Sri Lanka rains. We had to re-do the damaged part,” says Niharika who designed a total of 144 outfits for Anushka’s turn in the film.

‘Bombay Velvet’ features Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Raveena Tandon, Kay Kay Menon and Remo Fernandes apart from Anushka and is co-produced by Phantom Films and Fox Star Studios. Directed by Anurag Kashyap the film is slated to release on November 28, 2014.
