The Band Baaja Baarat actor will be seen wearing a heavy gown in her opening song in Bombay Velvet

Various B-town beauties right from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Deepika Padukone have been seen wearing heavy outfits onscreen. And now Anushka Sharma has joined the club, we hear. Virat Kohli’s alleged ladylove was weighed down by an elaborate gown which she dons for the role of a jazz singer in her upcoming film Bombay Velvet, opposite Ranbir Kapoor.

Anushka wears the green and gold number, designed by costume designer Niharika Bhasin Khan, for her opening song in the period drama, which is directed by Anurag Kashyap. The sequined gown, with a long train, is covered in applique flames. “The scene sees her behind the mic in a club. It took her two-and-half hours to dress and two assistants had to carry the train for her. Thankfully she did not have to dance in it,” says Niharika.

However weight was not the only challenge they faced. “The prep was on for a year but the dress was damaged in transit. The upper half was ruined in the Sri Lanka rains. We had to re-do the damaged part,” adds Niharika who designed a total of 144 outfits for Anushka in the film.
