Masoom – 1983
Producer – Devi Dutt
Director – Shekhar Kapoor
Costumes – Shabana Azmi
The character was based on a socialite in Delhi and I chose silks to suit the capital weather. The brief was to present her upper class and cheerful so I dressed her is sarees for formal wear and kaftans at home.
Sridevi is a legendary actress and undoubtedly one of the best actresses ever. A dancer with impeccable timing, she could do intense, emotional roles, a comedy turn and even with equal aplomb. Sridevi RIP. In our hearts, she’ll forever be, the Queen of Bollywood.
Bhawanaji, I always wanted to know wher you sourced Shabana Azmi’s kaftans from in Masoom. Theyre so in vogue even today after so many years. Please share the details. I would greatly appreciate it.
