Nachiket Barve on designing costumes for Adipurush
BollywoodLife recently spoke to Nachiket and while talking to us about designing costumes for Adipurush, he said, “The world of Adipurush is totally different from Tanhaji. It is set in another era and has a whole different treatment. It’s been massive, challenging, and a grander scale to execute; but a fantastic experience.”
Nachiket Barve praises Prabhas and Kriti Sanon
While talking to Bollywoodlife about working with Prabhas, the designer was all praises for the pan-India star. He stated, “Prabhas is a megastar but one of the nicest, soft-spoken and humble stars. He placed all his trust in me and just was brilliant to collaborate with. He has amazing insight into the character he plays and an intuitive feel for the costume. I am so thankful for his warmth and friendliness that made the whole shoot such a memorable experience.”
Nachiket also added that Prabhas spoils everyone on the sets by getting some outstanding Hyderabadi food from his home. He called him ‘true foodie at heart’.
Kriti Sanon plays the role of Sita in the film, and Nachiket calls her ‘incredibly stunning and very intelligent’. Further talking about the actress, he said, “We had long discussions about the costumes and she was an absolute delight to design for. It’s a very different look from how we have seen her before so I am very excited for everyone to see it.”
Well, moviegoers have a lot of expectations from Adipurush, and costumes play a very important role in period dramas.
