MUMBAI—People have always looked up to film stars from their respective eras as style icons, and have mimicked their dressing styles while attending family functions and weddings.
The heroines from Hindi movies dazzled on screen and girls often copied their dresses and hairstyles to stand out from the crowd. In the wedding track of Sony Entertainment Television’s weekdays soap “Yeh Unn Dinon Ki Baat Hai,” the look of Ashi Singh, who plays the role of Naina, was styled after Padmini Kolhapure’s from the 1982 movie “Prem Rog.”
Said Singh, “As the show is based in the ‘90s, we had to style my look on a popular heroine from the bygone era. The creative team and I had a lot of discussions and looked at different patterns and finally selected Padmini Kolhapure’s look. Be it in ‘Prem Rog,’ ‘Pyar Jhukta Nahin’ or others, the gorgeous actress redefined innocence and elegance in her movies and became a style icon. Her beautiful pink saree and the way it was dressed artistically brings back fond memories.”
