Rick Roy: I didn’t particularly like Priyanka Chopra’s styling in Mary Kom

Malika Arora Khan’s stylist Rick Roy talks to BollywoodLife about her look in Dolly Ki Doli along with his take on styles donned by other B-town actors

Rick Roy is one of India’s leading stylists in Bollywood today. He has styled actors Sonam Kapoor and Malaika Arora Khan. In an exclusive interview with BollywoodLife, Rick told us about his experience with Malika and the look he has given her in the item song Fashion Mujh Pe Khatam from Dolly Ki Doli.

When asked about Malaika’s look in the item song, Rick said, “We wanted to give Malaika a look which is very different. In order to do this, we scanned through loads of pictures of previous item numbers and observed the looks donned by the actors. If you see in most of the item numbers, the actors are seen sporting ghagra cholis. I sketched a style for Malaika which she loved, hence we came up with the look in Fashion Mujh Pe Khatam where she isn’t donning a ghagra choli but is seen wearing a desi outfit done in a different way.

Talking about certain styles of B-town actors which he personally found appealing in recent films, Rick revealed , “I think Kangana Ranaut’s styling in Queen was fabulous. I even liked Deepika’s styling in Cocktail very much. Alia’s styling in 2 States was also fab. I liked the way their characters were done. Deepika’s look in Finding Fanny by Anaita again is a brilliant one as she looks very appealing in her character.”

Rick further stated that he liked Katrina’s look in her upcoming film Bang Bang but did not particularly have praises to sing for Priyanka Chopra’s style in Mary Kom, “I found Katrina Kaif’s styling really good in Bang Bang. Coming back to Mary Kom, I’m not too sure about the styling. Priyanka’s character definitely comes across as a strong and appealing one, but I didn’t particularly like the styling very much. ”
