Prachi Desai's styling in her upcoming film is inspired by Kate Winslet's look in 'Titanic'

In her B-Town outings so far, Prachi Desai has always played roles of the girl-next-door. But for her next film produced by Vikram Bhatt, she will be seen in a new avatar. As the horror flick will be shot in England and her character is that of belonging to a royal aristocratic family, the makers are seeking inspiration from Kate Winslet’s styling in Titanic.

Says a unit source, “Her look is said to be very regal and classy according to the film’s backdrop. It has an Edwardian-era charm and will be shot in the castles of UK. The makers feel the Hollywood star’s look in the Oscar-winner goes well with her screen persona. She will be seen in gowns with extensive use of lace, sequins and beads. It is like what the yesteryear British aristocrats wore including a hat.”

Adds the source, “Prachi is particularly excited to have a Western royal look as it will also give her an image makeover. She is looking forward to begin work on the project.” The film is being directed by debutant Tinu Suresh Desai and goes on the floors in March. Meanwhile Prachi also features with Sanjay Dutt in the remake of the South film Saamy.
