Deepika Padukone to sport a royal look in ‘Bajirao Mastani’


Designer Anju Modi will style up Deepika Padukone in ‘Bajirao Mastani’. Anju said that Deepika will sport a ‘royal style’ in the film.

“Deepika will be seen dressed in royal style, plus she is playing a Muslim character in the film, so we have tried to give her sharara and kurtis,” the designer said at the Aza Store in India.

Throwing light into the film’s costumes, Anju said, “Bajirao Mastani is a period movie. So, we have kept old Mughal style Angarkha and Maharasthrian style Navwari saris as it’s a story about the Maratha Peshwas.”

Anju Modi, the founding member of the Fashion Design Council of India made her Bollywood debut with Bhansali’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’.

‘Bajirao Mastani’, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali is based on the love story of Maratha warrior Peshwa Bajirao I (Ranveer Singh) and his second wife Mastani (Padukone). Priyanka Chopra plays Kashibai, the first wife of Bajirao.
