No, Anushka Sharma did not pile on the kilos but was weighed down by a lavish outfit which she wear for the character of a jazz singer in Bombay Velvet. The actress who plays the part of a jazz singer in the movie Bombay Velvet, has put on an elaborate gown which made her heavier by 35 kilos.
Costume designer Niharika Bhasin Khan has designed a total of 144 clothes for Anushka Sharma in the film. The National Award-winning designer, who collaborated with Anushka on her 2010 movie Band Baaja Baarat, says that weight wasn’t the only challenge they faced.
Anushka Sharma wears a green and gold outfit for her entry song in the movie. Since the gown had plenty of appilique work, the actress literally needed help to carry it. The film, which is presently in post-production, is all set to launch on November 28 2014.
