A look with a difference

Deepika Padukone’s lungi and shirt look from ‘Chennai Express’ posters does not spark a trend. But it has certainly made everyone do a double take.

The actress reveals that the film’s lead actor Shah Rukh Khan and director Rohit Shetty came up with the idea to dress her in a lungi.

“That’s something new and I hope it works,” says Deepika about her look.

“The idea to wear a lungi is not mine actually. It was Shah Rukh and Rohit who came up with it. We had to quickly do a photoshoot because we were losing the light. They said, ‘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,” the actress says. Deepika, fresh from the success of ‘Race 2’, is looking forward to back-to-back releases this year.

“It has been a good year but my next six months are very demanding in terms of my schedule. I hope all the hard work pays. I have ‘Chennai Express’ and Kochadaiyaan with Rajini (Rajinikanth) sir is also ready for release,” says Deepika.

There were reports that she may star in Salman Khan’s ‘Kick’ but the actress denies it.
