Shot in the dark: This topnotch filmmaker is mixing friendship with business
This topnotch filmmaker, who is producing a historical with a leading star, has roped in his designer buddy for the costumes
This topnotch filmmaker, who is producing a historical with a leading star, has roped in his designer buddy for the costumes. The designer is a favourite of B-Town and is known for giving female actors a makeover. But his prowess when it comes to handling period dramas is questionable.
He had earlier called the shots in two costume dramas. His styling in both the projects had come in for a lot of criticism and the films bombed. So why does this finicky filmmaker keep using this designer for all his projects? Simply because the filmmaker does not know how to say no. Mixing business with friendship can sometimes be a recipe for disaster, but the producer cannot look beyond the designer.
