Shabana Azmi, Jaya Bachchan’s Complete Makeover In Karan Johar’s Film
Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani: Manish Malhotra is giving Shabana Azmi, Jaya Bachchan a glamorous makeover for KJo’s film
Two of India’s finest actresses Shabana Azmi and Jaya Bachchan, both beyond 70, are being given the most spectacular makeover in the history of their illustrious careers.
And producer-director Karan Johar has assigned the formidable job to his buddy designer Manish Malhotra who has been provided a detailed brief on how the two actresses should look in Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Ki Amar Kahani where Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt play the title roles.
A source from the core crew tells me, “Who says women after a certain age cannot be glamorous? Gayatri Devi and Sharmila Tagore are prime examples of ultimate autumnal glamour. Shabanaji and Jayaji have great potential for being glammed up and we are going to make full use of their towering personalities to dress them up as divas.”
The joke on location of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani is….every time Shabana and Jaya see Manish Malhotra approaching they shout to one another to run to hide.
“They can’t recognize themselves in the mirror once they get into the clothes Manish has designed for them,” the insider from the crew tell me with an evil laugh.
