We have seen Sonakshi Sinha effortlessly adapting to different styles – whether it was Lajjo in Dabangg or a cop in Force 2. For the first time now, the actress will be seen as a quintessential Gujarati in Welcome to New York.
Audiences have already got a glimpse of Sonakshi’s role as Jinal Patel in the recently released trailer. The actress plays the role of a fashion designer in the film. But the ones who have seen the trailer will also be aware that her looks has her own quirks.
Sonakshi Sinha is teaming up her Kurtis with bindi and accessories in the film. Interestingly, this look has been put together by her college batch-mate, Eka Lakhani.
Talking about it, Sonakshi Sinha said, ” Eka has understood the quirks of the character really well and applied it to her fashion. I was really happy with all the elements she put together to give Jinal Patel a very different, quirky and individual style, a style she can call her own.
She added, “The character is supposed to be somebody who is an aspiring fashion designer and has her own quirky sense of fashion. To go with the quirks in her personality, we added certain quirks to her look too and that really added to the character.”
Stylist Eka Lakhani says, “Sonakshi’s look was supposed to be fun, quirky yet it had to have a slightly ‘off’ or slightly ‘weird’ feel to it. So while we made her look fun, we also gave a slightly quirky vibe to her overall look.”
On the other hand, director Chakri Toleti commented, “It was fun working with Sonakshi, and she took on the role like a fish to water. Moreover, with her comic timing, she was able to bring out the very best.”
