The talented costume designer in a brief chat decodes the Bollywood dress code

Excerpts


NIHARIKA KHAN
NIHARIKA KHAN

How important is a costume designer to a film/character
Important enough to fit them into their skin of the character

Do costume designers get due credit as DOP, Editor, Director?
Over the years that I have worked it has changed drastically and hopefully will continue to do so. Now we get front credit in a film and a few awards have started recognizing that costume design is also a key technician for a project.

What do you notice in a movie as a movie goer, costume designer
If it's not the one I have worked for then I can watch the film in its entirety, only vaguely noticing the costume if it stands out to me in beauty, subtlety, colour and or design.

'Bollywood dressing is getting more real'

How has Bollywood dressing evolved
It is getting more real and is more in sync with the settings, period depicted in the movie.

Who is your hero in a movie/project – the producer, the actor /character, the DOP, or the dress designed by your team/you
All of the above. If I can get them ALL in one is ideal. And if I had to choose then it would be the producer who is not bothered about the budget

FAN is released today, what was more exciting – designing costumes for Shah Rukh Khan or his fan and why
Both. They are such different characters that each had its own excitements and challenges.
