Actress Vidya Balan, who is playing a Punjabi housewife in her next film Ghanchakkar, says her fashion sense in the romantic comedy is bizarre, and that her designer had a tough time trying to put together the look.
"I had great fun playing Nitu Bhatia in Ghanchakkar. She's the hatti-katti (hefty) Punjabi housewife, who we all know, somehow! She is the cats' whiskers, when it comes to fashion," Vidya said.
Describing the part further, she said: "She's the sort of woman who goes for a walk one day and feels if you've exercised, there's no harm eating one samosa. Subarna Rai Chaudhari went mad trying to put together the look. What she wears is almost outlandish and even bizarre sometimes... but that's for you!"
Directed by Rajkumar Gupta, Ghanchakkar features Emraan Hashmi opposite Vidya. The film is slated for release June 21.
