Dolly Ahluwalia to design Shahid Kapoor’s costumes in Haider

Though Dolly Ahluwalia was nationally recognised as an actress after playing the role of Ayushmann Khurrana’s mother in the film Vicky Donor, she is predominantly a costume designer. Costume designing is something that she wants to stick to.

She’s worked on over a dozen movies already, including Midnight’s Children and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag; projects involving a lot of research into history. So it wasn’t a surprise when she was asked to design the costumes for the upcoming Shahid Kapoor film Haider; which is set in the 1990s Kashmir.

Dolly, who is working on the Shahid Kapoor-starrer Haider, has studied Kashmir extensively to get an authentic wardrobe in place for the cast.

“While we did source a lot of stuff locally, we are also recreating some costumes ourselves,” she said.
