has always been hailed as a fashionista. But the actor, who is often seen wearing high-end brands both on and off the big screen, is soon set to sport a non-glamorous Indian look. In her next, Ranjhanaa, Sonam will be seen in ethnic wear. In fact, director Anand Rai signed the actor on the condition that she leaves behind her glamorous image and submit to a no make-up, subtle look.
Producer Krishika Lulla says, “Sonam has always been synonymous with runway fashion, but in Ranjhanaa we needed her to play a simple girl with middle-class ambitions. Her Indian look in films so far too has had a touch of international styling. However, in Ranjhanaa, she was professional and got into the character, whether it was donning a simple kurti or a uniform. She completely gave in and transformed into the character Zoya.”
The director adds, “Sonam was in sync with the idea of playing this girl from the word ‘go’. I have always felt she looks her best without make-up. She is looking gorgeous in the film.”
