In her forthcoming film ‘Ek Paheli Leela,’ Sunny Leone will be seen in not one, but three different looks, which she hasn’t attempted before. Apart from the sex siren herself, credit for the outfits also goes to her personal stylist Hitesh Kapopara, who created her looks for her previous films.
From traditional to modern, Sunny plays a village girl, a model and also a princess in this reincarnation drama directed by Bobby Khan. Along with her designer and producer Shaira Khan, the actress was involved in all aspects of her look, from the material of her costumes to other accessories.
Apart from sporting cholis with heavy jewellery as a village belle, she will also be seen in branded designer wear for her role as a model from London. To add authenticity to her different looks, the actress and her producer went shopping in the local markets of Rajasthan and London. Kapopara, who sourced bandhani material, mojaris and accessories from Ahmedabad, says, “Producer Ahmed Khan was particular that every look of Sunny in the film was new and something she hasn’t done before. Sunny understands the script and what kind of outfits are required and suitable for each scene.”
The designer adds that having worked with the actress from the start of her career in Bollywood has helped in building an understanding between the two. “While Sunny knows she has to look sexy, her costumes are according to her scenes and shouldn’t look out of place/context. She’s hardworking and has a very good sense of fashion, so she gives valuable inputs,” says Hitesh.
