SRK, Rohit behind Dipy's 'lungi' look
New Delhi: Will Deepika Padukone's 'lungi' and shirt look from 'Chennai Express' posters spark a trend? Tough to predict whether Dipy will be as hot as Zeenie Baby who made a style statement with her ‘lungi’ looks in several films in the 70s.
The actress reveals that film's lead actor Shah Rukh Khan and director Rohit Shetty came up with the idea to dress her in a 'lungi'. "That's something new and I hope it works," says Deepika about her look.
"The idea to wear a 'lungi' is not mine actually. It was Shah Rukh and Rohit who came up with it. We had to quickly do a photoshoot because we were losing the light. They were like 'Why don't we give her this 'lungi' and make her look modern'. The shirt that I am wearing in the posters also belongs to SRK, only the sunglasses are mine," the actress said.
The pot-boiler, which reunites Deepika with SRK onscreen after her debut in 'Om Shanti Om', is slated to release this year.
Deepika, fresh from the success of 'Race 2', is looking forward to back-to-back releases this year.
"It has been a good year but my next next six months are very demanding in terms of my schedule. I hope all the hard work pays. I have 'Chennai Express' and 'Kochadaiyaan' with Rajini (Rajinikanth) sir is also ready for release," said Deepika.
She has two other films -'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', with Ranbik Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Ram Leela'.
