Parineeti Chopra’s subdued, contemporary Punjabi girl act in ‘Namaste England’ has worked well, just like her smart, sassy and ethnic chic look.
Both the trailer and poster featuring Parineeti sporting Patiala Salwars, a typical Punjabi attire with colourful and smart kurtas are catching everyone’s attention.
Parineeti’s look for the film has been designed by Sanjana Batra, who found the actor’s inputs on her character’s appearance very helpful. They have played around with authentic Punjabi silhouettes, colour to create a young, vibrant, ethnic chic look.
Parineeti insisted on combining the Patiala salwar, which is both comfortable and very stylish with sequinned kurtas for her look.
Now the look, which is easy to emulate, has become quite a talking point online.
‘We stuck to bright happy colours in traditional silhouettes and diversified with fun boho jackets with an indie influence for her character as seen in Punjab. For the London bit, we chose to transition the characters’ way of dressing up- a lot more muted in terms of colours, slightly older and more elegant but with western silhouettes,’ Sanjana said.
In the film, Parineeti sports a lot of bright colours and fabrics that originate in Punjab, and are worn locally. The costumes and the combination of colours are extremely relatable to the youths especially those belonging to Punjab as they are authentic. Therefore, they are being appreciated.
Parineeti will make a paradigm shift with her character in ‘Namaste England’ from her urbane roles. Her ethnic chic look along with her toned body has drawn much interest in the film.
