Bollywood Fashion: Boring Anushka Sharma, some fun looks in Patiala House
After Anushka Sharma’s Band Baaja Baaraat Punjabi kudi role, the actor stars in a “Punjabi” style movie yet again. In Patiala House (starring Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia and a Punjabi-sized ensemble cast), we’ve not paid much attention to Anushka Sharma. That’s partly because we’re bored of the typical Punjabi clothes and boy/girl-next-door outfits of the cast.
Instead, our style focus shifts to the Kahlon family “bimbettes”: Jesmeet and Anaida.
Jesmeet (Selina Hotwani) and Anaida (Juveria Khan) are young giggly sisters who apparently like “boys, makeup and more boys.” While that’s sadly stereotypical of most popcorn flicks, we’re enjoying Jesmeet and Anaida’s on-screen style. Take a look:
The two have done played with trends like colour mixing and funky layering, and are sporting trendy accessories like chic berets and long necklaces. Of course, credit is also due to Patiala House’s costume designer Jaimal O’Dedra.
Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma doesn’t seem to be making much of an impact in the Patiala House promos—neither in the fashion department nor otherwise. Here’s a glimpse of Anushka in the popular song Laung da Lashkara.
Anushka is wearing a tight choli and low-waist lehenga. Nothing new in that, but I liked the nose-ring. Is it coming back already?
