Epic films that are every bit as grand in style and fashion


Bajirao Mastani: Anju Modi did a fabulous job in this one. The designer travelled across Indore, Nashik, Pune, Paithan and Ajanta to create the perfect costumes. Must say that the floor-skimming anarkalis and angrakhas paired with Farshi pajamas were a stunner – not to forget, Ranveer Singh’s elaborate headgears.


Jodhaa Akbar: More than the costumes designed by Neeta Lulla, it was the jewellery in the film that got people talking. Two hundred craftsmen worked for 600 days, moulded 400 kg of gold and precious and semi-precious stones to recreate jewelleries of Mughal era in Ashutosh Gowariker’s historical romance.


Devdas: Neeta Lulla did a great job with the costumes in Devdas. The exquisite lehenga cholis, the heavy work saris, the classic white and red Bengali sari, puff-sleeved blouses and Madhuri Dixit’s 30 kg red zardozi lehenga in the song Kaahe Chhed Mohe in Devdas looked beautiful.
