ACE DESIGNER NEETA LULLA CREATES STUNNING LOOKS FOR ‘MOHENJO DARO’
It’s difficult to style for period films” says Mohenjo Daro designer Neeta Lulla
While making period films like Mohenjo Daro, small details such as the sets and costume designing plays a pivotal role. Ace designer Neeta Lulla says “One has to be careful while styling for period films as one has to strike the right balance between the genuineness of that era and the latest fashion trends. The script and research material was given to us. We had to work accordingly on the costumes. It’s an epic film and we had to create a world and vision that the director wanted. The most challenging part is that there is no visual reference available from that era. We had to keep in mind that the costume should look like it’s from that era and also keep in mind today’s audience as they are going to watch the film.”
The designer, who has teamed up with director Ashutosh Gowariker for his Hrithik Roshan-starrer Mohenjo Daro, has earlier styled Hrithik Roshan for Jodha Akbar as well.
Mohenjo Daro is set in the Indus Valley civilisation. The epic adventure-drama features superstar Hrithik Roshan and newcomer Pooja Hegde in the lead. The film is set to release on 12th August 2016.
Synopsis : During the Pre-historic Indus Valley, in 2016 BC, the evil greed of a man is about to destroy one of the oldest cities in the ancient world, Mohenjo Daro. A young indigo farmer, Sarman, enters the city and meets Chaani, the daughter of the Priest, predicted to be the Origin of a New Society. Sarman, in his attempt to win Chaani’s love, uncovers the secrets nobody was ever supposed to know – about Chaani, about Mohenjo Daro and about his own past!
MOHENJO DARO is a story of an ancient love and our past, present and future
