Designer Nikhil Thampi will be styling Bollywood actors Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor for Anurag Kashyap’s period film “Bombay Velvet.”
“I am styling Anushka and Ranbir for ‘Bombay Velvet.’ I have done my research for the look they should have depending on their characters.
“Doing a period film with a dream cast like this and a dream director is something I was looking for. I am happy to be part of this project,” Thampi said.
“Bombay Velvet” is the story of how the city became a metropolis. Kapoor and Sharma have come together for the film to share screen space as lovers whose lives intermingle with the evolution of the city of Bombay, through the ‘50s to the early ‘70s.
“She (Anushka) is my muse. She is a good friend. She is someone who can carry even a garbage bag effortlessly. She is confident and talented. She tells me, ‘I don’t want to be a fashion diva, just make me look good,’” Thampi said.
