Ashmit Patel believes in taking his roles very seriously. So, when the actor was required to wear a dhoti-kurta for his film THE FLAG, the actor not only practiced wearing it with absolute ease, but even mastered the art of tying it himself.
Informs an insider, ''In THE FLAG, Ashmit is playing a patriotic character, Deva. Since the film has the backdrop of a small rural village, Ashmit had to wear kurtas and dhotis throughout the film. And he was so excited about wearing dhotis that he even learned how to drape one in a true villager style.
Ashmit didn't stop there. He even helped the other junior artists wear it! In fact, he became so meticulous about it that if he saw any of them wear it untidily, he asked them to drape it right. When asked about it, Ashmit confirmed it and said, ''Yes, draping a dhoti is quite an art! Not that I have never worn a dhoti earlier, but this time it was the only costume I had to wear throughout the film, so I thought I might as well learn to wear it. And I helped others wear one if the costume-dresser was busy.''
With his obsession for dhoti-kurtas one shouldn't be surprised if the actor's spotted sporting a new look in it even at social dos, right Ashmit?
