DEEPIKA PADUKONE and ASHUTOSH GOWARIKER
Just a couple of months back we had brought to you the inside story of how Deepika is addressed as Kalpana (her on screen name) on the sets of Ashutosh Gowariker's KHEILEIN HUM JEE JAAN SE. And here is more!
As most people will know, KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SE is a period film that brings together two very hot and happening stars in their own rights, Abhishek Bachchan and Deepika Padukone. Deepika is essaying the character of 18 year old Kalpana Dutta in the film.
As per the leading lady, the perfectionist director Ashutosh had everything planned regarding the look of her character. It was a special team that worked on her looks. One person was entrusted with dress designing and another focussed on her hairstyle while the third worked on her make up.
After a lot of hard work and research her look in the film was readied. Deepika adds that she was shown photographs of Kalpana Dutta, which were really helpful to her and the team as Kaplana is a historical character and so her looks could not be changed and they had to implement every little detail. Deepika goes on to say before the start of the shoot, Ashutosh had talked to her in detail and cleared up everything regarding her character and she loved her ethnic look, the 1916 style of sarees and jewellery in the film and feels that playing this character is once in a lifetime opportunity.
Well, knowing Ashutosh's penchant for perfectionism these detailing are a part and parcel of his working style and we know now why Deepika is so very happy these days!
