Deepika Padukone’s lungi and shirt look in Chennai Express is something never seen before and it is generating a considerate amount of curiosity about the movie.
Deepika revealed that it was director Rohit Shetty and actor Shahrukh Khan who came up with the idea.
“The idea to wear a ‘lungi’ is not mine actually. It was Shah Rukh and Rohit who came up with it. We had to quickly do a photoshoot because we were losing the light. They were like ‘Why don’t we give her this lungi and make her look modern’, “said the actress.
“That’s something new and I hope it works,” added Deepika about her look. We hope so too! The trendsetter that Deepika is, we hope that this is not going to follow suit!
“The shirt that I am wearing in the posters also belongs to SRK, only the sunglasses are mine,” she said.
It was more than five years back that we saw Deepika Padukone and Shahrukh Khan together in Om Shanthi Om. It will be interesting to wait and watch if the pair is going to recreate the magic in this movie as well.
There was speculation that the actress would be working with Salman Khan in the film Kick. However Deepika denies it saying, “That’s all speculation. It probably stems from the fact that I had expressed a desire to work with Salman Khan. Maybe these stories are coming from there. There is nothing concrete on that film yet.”
Meanwhile Deepika who is riding high on the success of her film, Race 2 has three more films lined up - Kochadaiyaan with Rajinikanth, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, her film with Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela.
