Was challenging to style Farhan for `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag`:Dolly
Mumbai: National award-winning actress and costume designer Dolly Ahluwalia, who has styled Farhan Akhtar for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra`s biopic on Milkha Singh, says it was a challenging job to trace the actor`s looks for the on-screen journey of the legendary sprinter.
"Costume designing has been challenging for Farhan and I wish and pray it`s a big hit. We were very conscious about that... We had gone and met Milkha Singh many times to get the feedback," Dolly told reporters.
"Film is a creative medium and so we definitely took a little liberty for Farhan`s look but no long leaps. It is a long film with a journey of a young boy of 10 to a man of 30 years," she said.
`Bhaag Milkha Bhaag` releases in July this year.
The veteran actor played mother to Ayushmann Khurrana in `Vicky Donor` and won the national honour.
Earlier, she bagged the National Award in 1996 for costume designing in Shekhar Kapur`s `Bandit Queen` and the Filmfare Award for Best Costume for Vishal Bharadwaj`s 2007 film `Omkara`.
Now, she will be seen playing mother to Tusshar Kapoor in Shashank Shah`s next.
"I am playing Tusshar Kapoor`s mother. I am playing a woman caught in different circumstances and how she reacts to it," she said.
Her another acting project is `Ek Sarkari Jhoota` directed by Rahat Kazmi where she has teamed with Raghuvir Yadav.
