Chitrangada's look not inspired by Madhuri in 'Joker' song

Designer Rick Roy, who has styled Chitrangada Singh for her first item number in 'Joker', says, the look of the actress is not inspired by Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit's look in her hit song 'Humko Aaj Kal Hai'.

The item song - 'I Want Just You' -- from the Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi starrer seems to bear some similarity in terms of look and attire, to Madhuri's song from the 1990 film 'Sailaab'.

"Chitrangada is in a totally different avatar in this song. The look wasn't inspired by Madhuri. Farah Khan's (choreographer-producer) brief to me was to make sure she looks outstanding, and thats what I followed," Rick told PTI.

"Even though it is an item number we wanted it to be very classy... we wanted that very rustic Indian village look for her and that's what we did," he said.

Rick has also styled the dusky beauty for her another upcoming film 'Inkaar', directed by Sudhir Mishra.

'Inkaar' is a love story, with sexual harassment in the backdrop starring Chitrangada and Arjun Rampal in the lead.

"'Inkaar' was a very challenging film for me. Firstly its Sudhir Mishra who I admire a lot, and it was a film that was very real and it had to look believable. I wanted to make sure Chitrangada looks very stylish but also shouldn't be out of place," Rick said.

"Chitrangada sports three very distinct looks in the film as her character progresses. Its a very interesting film. Sudhir is an encyclopedia of knowledge," he said.

Rick was elated when Mishra praised his work.
"On the last day of the film after pack up he (Sudhir Mishra) came to me and said 'Chitrangada's character looked exactly how I wanted her to look in the film.. you have done a good job.' It was one of my favorite moments ever," he said.

Rick has a string of interesting projects lined up like 'Raaz 3', Sajid Khan''s remake version of 'Himmatwala' and Emraan Hashmi-Vidya Balan starrer 'Ghanchakkar'.
