Deepika talks about her look in Ashu’s film
Ever since Deepika Padukone’s saree clad look in ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ was released a way back, there have been widespread reactions in the industry. People have stood up and noticed the new look Deepika who till just a few weeks back was seen in a bikini for ‘Housefull’. However, just as the makers of ‘Housefull’ and ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ come with different sensibilities, so is being reflected in the subject as well as character presentation.
With Deepika bringing in a new facet of her ‘revolutionary’ persona for Ashutosh Gowariker’s period film, a solo shot has managed to bring quite some limelight to ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ which is at least half a year away from release.
“I know. This still was released to give a glimpse of what is in the offing from the film”, says Deepika from Mauritius where she is currently stationed for a rather long shoot of ‘Break Ke Baad’, “However, the reactions which have started coming in are overwhelming. I wasn’t aware that it would actually go on to make so much news. I am glad because this reiterates the fact that people have been curious to know about the look of the film and the characters.”
It appears that there is a lot that one would get to see of Deepika-in-a-saree this season. After all very recently, she did create a stir of sorts by walking the red carpert at Cannes in a saree.
“Well, both are different kind of sarees actually”, she says, “In Cannes it was an event-wear while in Ashu’s film, there are lot of cotton sarees that I am wearing. Since it is a period film, the presentation is totally different. The film has a Bengali milieu to it and I had to make sure that I carry the look well.”
Starring Abhishek Bachchan in lead, ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ is aiming for 3rd December release.
