Filmmaker Kabeer Kaushik certainly loves draping his heroines in 'sarees'. This has been apparent in both the films that he has made so far - CHAMKU and earlier SEHAR.
Earlier in SEHAR, remake of THE UNTOUCHABLES, Kabeer had roped in Mahima Chaudhary opposite Arshad Warsi. Though she didn't quite have a substantial role to boast of, she did look gorgeous in all the 'sarees' that she worn during the entire length of the film. In what has been perhaps one of the few significant films that Mahima has done in a long-long time, she did make her presence felt in the Indian attire.
Now in his latest film CHAMKU, Kabeer has made Priyanka Chopra also get the core Indian look on while wearing sarees. Seen recently in LOVE STORY 2050 as a Diva while appearing as a bubbly young girl in GOD TUSSI GREAT HO, Priyanka is seen in a different 'avtar' altogether in CHAMKU. With her upcoming films like FASHION, DOSTANA and DRONA promising to showcase different facets of her personality, one gets to see Priyanka in a rare saree appearance.
Meanwhile one wonders if Kabeer would make a hat trick of sorts by going with a similar dress code for heroines in his third film as well!
