Mumbai, March 6 (Calcutta Tube) Bengali Beauty Bipasha Basu and Rocky S have known each other for over a decade and the designer says she looks perfect in a sari, contrary to the popular view that only western outfits suit her. And he went all the way to Kolkata to buy saris for the actress to wear in a forthcoming film.
[ReviewAZON asin=”B0037XQT8Y” display=”inlinepost”]’People feel that she looks good only in western outfits. That’s not true. She is a very simple girl who looks good in everything. Personally, I feel she looks perfect in a sari because she is a very traditional girl and a sari reflects that trait,’ Rocky S told IANS in an interview.
The designer did the inaugural show at the Lakme Fashion Week here Friday and the actress walked the ramp for him in a yellow and beige sari.
Rocky is working with Bipasha in director Priyadarshan’s untitled movie in which the actress plays a middle-class Bengali woman.
‘You will see Bipasha in big bindis and beautiful saris. I had to go all the way to Kolkata to purchase saris for her,’ he said.
So was it a difficult task?
‘Well, Bipasha is a Bengali girl and she has sharp Bengali features…So I didn’t have to do much. But I can tell you one thing that the audience will love her in the movie and this look. She is looking simply beautiful,’ Rocky said.
Rocky has also designed for the actress in upcoming movie ‘Lamhaa’ in which she plays a Kashmiri girl. And after an association going back over 10 years, the designer says the two now ‘complement’ each other.
‘Bipasha is a very close friend. I understand her body language completely. Ever since she started her career, I have been designing for her. Over the period of years our bond has become so strong that we complement each other,’ he said.
‘It’s her trust in me and my designs that keeps our relationship going,’ he added.
Rocky’s Bollywood clientele also includes John Abraham, Katrina Kaif and Shilpa Shetty.
