Is this Drashti Dhami’s new look in Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon?

Post the 20-year time leap, the lead star will be seen in a different avatar…as her own daughter. You like?

We found a picture of the pretty Drashti Dhami, still in her salwar-kameez avatar, but wearing spectacles. The girl looks good, never mind that old adage – boys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses. We are sure that whether Drashti is romantically involved with Neeraj Khemka or not, she must have a lot of men trying to get friendly with her…. don’t you think so? For now, this new look with a slight flavour of geekiness is rumoured to be the actor’s image in Madhubala Ek Ishq Ek Junoon post the 20-year leap. You will remember that both Madhu and RK (Vivian D’Sena) are killed in a massive explosion at their house during a party, but their new baby is saved. She grows up and Drashti plays her, after playing the role of her mother, while being romanced – we think – by Karanvir Bohra.

All that apart, while Ms D is most often seen in traditional wear in the serials she acts in, off screen her image is less demure and desi. You saw her in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6, hai na? As she danced with choreographer Salman Yusuf Khan, she wore the tiniest and most revealing skirts, shorts and tops, showing off her slender shape to perfection. It may have initially been a bit of a shock for her loyal TV audience who has been used to seeing her in a more covered-up look, but that did not prevent them voting her to victory in the dance reality show. Will they be as approving of her in glasses? We wait to find out…
