line of clothing, the dates for which are currently being worked upon. When asked, Narula admits, “We are planning a line of Akshay Kumar’s shirts from the film with a leading garment brand. But schedules are tight right now, so settling on a launch date is difficult.”

Khan adds, “Katrina’s (Kaif) outfits can’t be in stores because not everyone is blessed with an hourglass figure like hers. So, they will be auctioned for a charitable cause. We will also give them away as prizes at promotion contests.”

She admits that she’s fielded a lot of questions regarding Kumar’s costumes. “Everyone is talking about them. Many ask me which area in Mumbai we get these shirts from. We had to do our own spin on a conman, which was unlike other conmen in the movies,” says Khan, adding, “If everything goes well, we will bring the line out towards the last week of December.”

Narula’s team picked up floral saris from Paidhoni and Byculla, and lungis from various pockets of Bandra and Mohammed Ali Road and turned them into

shirts. “Farah and I decided to have fun. I love her style of films — colourful and over-the-top in a feel-good way. After discussing Akshay’s character, I thought of exploring unusual markets in the city,” says Narula. “We even sourced some of Katrina’s jewellery from these pockets. Designing the

wardrobe was more fun than I thought it would be."

Meanwhile, online sites have been selling tees with catchy one-liners from the film. When asked, Khan says, “The T-shirts with witty lines by Akshay and Katrina are a rage with collegians. Websites selling them have given me positive feedback. So I’m sure when the actual shirts arrive on shelves, they won’t take long to be sold off.”
