The leggy beauty tells the story behind her lungi look in Rohit Shetty’s forthcoming production. Read on to know how Dippy donned the traditional South Indian drape
Deepika Padukone has an interesting story to tell as far as her funky look on the poster of Rohit Shetty’s forthcoming film Chennai Express starring Shahrukh Khan is concerned.
When Dippy came to shoot for the poster, little did the 26-year-old know that there was an interesting wardrobe change for her, that was conceptualised by none other than her Om Shanti Om co-star SRK.“The idea to wear a lungi is not mine actually. It was Shahrukh and Rohit who came up with it. We had to quickly do a photo shoot because we were losing the light. They were like ‘Why don’t we give her this lungi and make her look modern.’ The shirt that I am wearing in the posters also belongs to SRK, only the sunglasses are mine,” said Deepika in an interview to a daily.
We think the obvious reason why Deepika was made to wear a lungi was because the actor-director duo wanted to cash in on the gorgeous star’s interminably long legs which are amply visible because the lungi is tied very sexily, making this poster look really interesting. After all, who knows marketing better than King Khan himself!
