Welcome To New York: All you need to know about Sonakshi Sinha's styling in the film
Sonakshi Sinha's character in Welcome To New York is supposed to be somebody who is an aspiring fashion designer and has her own quirky sense of fashion
Just like her varying roles in the movies, Sonakshi Sinha's fashion sense is also quite varied be it a desi belle in Dabangg, or the action girl in Akira, or the elite women in Ittefaq. We have always liked the detailing of the characters when it comes to styling in particular. And with her upcoming film Welcome to New York, she has made it loud and clear. Sonakshi is playing a Gujarati fashion designer, Jinal Patel in the film.
For Jinal's quirky look, Sonakshi teams up Kurtis with bindi and accessories. The character is supposed to be somebody who is an aspiring fashion designer and has her own quirky sense of fashion. Interestingly, her look has been put together by her college batchmate, Eka Lakhani.
Sonakshi says, "Eka has understood the quirks of the character really well and applied it to her fashion! I was really happy with all the elements she put together to give Jinal Patel a very different, quirky and individual style, a style she can call her own. To go with the quirks in her personality, we added certain quirks to her look too and that really added to the character. "
Stylist Eka Lakhani says, Sonakshi's look was supposed to be fun, quirky, yet it had to have a slightly 'off' or slightly 'weird' feel to it. So while we made her look fun, we also gave a slightly quirky vibe to her overall look."
Director Chakri Toleti says, "It was fun working with Sonakshi, and she took on the role like a fish to water. Moreover, with her comic timing, she was able to bring out the very best.
