Fashion designer Pria Kataria Puri has styled Priyanka Chopra and Mahie Gill for the "Zanjeer(2013)" remake and reveals that the latter, who plays Mona Darling in the action-thriller, will be seen in a sensuous yet sophisticated diva.
"We coloured her hair, she had never coloured her hair. She had never worn heels, but we got custom heels made for her that were 7-8 inches high to give her that diva look. We made her wear everything from a swimsuit to a see-through kaftan to sexy tight dresses," Pria said here Wednesday at the model audition for Lakme Fashion Week.
"But we have presented her in a very classy, sophisticated way. She has been shown as a very sensuous, sexy woman who follows today's fashion...We have shown her as a diva," she added.
Pria said it was great styling Mahie as she came with a clean slate and gave her free hand to experiment with her look the way she wanted.
"It was very exciting for me because Mahie has not been presented that way and I prefer people who come with a blank canvas, so that I can draw what I want to. If they are good actors, they take it like a sponge," said the designer.
"Really fun and very easy to do looks for Mahie because she said to me 'Priya, you do what you want to do. You want to colour my hair, cut my hair.' So we actually had a full transition on her," she added.
The film is slated for a Sep 6 release and the promos will go on air July 6.
