Dusky beauty Bipasha Basu, known for her bold and sensual image, is playing a Kashmiri girl in Lamhaa and designer Rocky S, who has draped her in the Bollywood movie, says that she has never looked so simple onscreen.
"In this movie, you will be surprised to see Bipasha in a non-glamorous role. She is without any makeup and has worn simple clothes to fit in perfectly for this role," Rocky S told IANS in an interview.
"She is looking very simple, and trust me, she has never looked that simple. She has always looked glamorous onscreen but this time, it would be the girl next door look," he added.
Elaborating on Bipasha's look, Rocky said: "In this movie, you will see her in salwaar kameez, kaftans and dupattas. The colours that I have used there are also very subtle."
"She is playing the role of a tortured girl in the movie and this demanded a very subtle look," he added.
Was it difficult to portray Bipasha as a simple girl?
"Not at all. She is someone who carries every outfit with elan. She is beautiful and sexy and looks very feminine. The character of this simple Kashmiri Muslim girl has brought out that femininity," Rocky explained.
"It took me about one-and-a-half months to create the look for her. But at the end of the day, I am very happy with her look," he added.
Mumbai-based Rocky S is in the capital to participate in the three day Van Heusen India Mens Week (VHIMW) that opened Friday.
Rocky's Bollywood clientele includes John Abraham, Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu and Shilpa Shetty. When asked which celebrity would walk the ramp at VHIMW, the designer said: "Now I don't need any celebrity to prove myself."
Apart from Lamhaa, he is also designing for Katrina Kaif in Priyadarshan's De Dana Dan but refused to divulge any details.
