The last movie of SLB was Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, whose costume was designed by Fashion designer Anju Modi, making her debut in Bollywood with the movie. Did you remember the grandeur of the costumes? Then you can imagine working with her what the director is going to give us this time as well.

As a designer she has always preferred to go for the traditional Indian way as her inspiration and as per sources, Modi has carried out severe research work for getting the correct look of Bajirao Mastani and get the right ambiance.

She said that she studied history and travelled various parts of Maharashtra with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, went into the interiors and visited museums to get a sense of what used to be there. According to her this gave a chance to bring out elements from the Maharashtrian culture, be it in Kashibai’s navvaris or Bajirao’s dhotis or Mastani’s dupattas, shararas, angrakhas and veils.

Not just the costumes, they are using expensive pieces of jewellery, which Anju is taking on the task from best jewellery designers of the nation such as Shri Hari Jewellers from Delhi and PN Gadgil from Pune. She used the best materials which includes antique stones, uncut diamonds and Basra pearls, as this is a period movie which is set against a regal backdrop offering the authentic look to the characters.

By now if you have seen the teaser and have seen Deepika Padukone aka Mastani of the movie, then sure you are drooling over the costume. Designed in line with Vaastu which Anju sees as an intuitive science, her favourite shades are indigo blue and ash grey.
