Mumbai: Actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who will be seen as a South Indian royal in a campaign, says royalty is something that always intrigued her.
The actress has been roped for a South Indian textile brand, Pothys. For its campaign shoot, she will be essaying a South Indian royal.
Drawing inspiration from the founder of Bengaluru, Kempe Gowda’s lineage, fashion designer Nishka Lulla has put together Tamannaah’s look.
“The only time I was essayed aristocracy in the creative format was in ‘Baahubali’. This time around it’s for a commercial ad shoot and I’m very impressed with the way Nishka has curated my entire ensemble,” Tamannaah said in a statement.
“Royalty is something that always intrigued me to a great extent. I’ve always wanted to be part of a period drama and playing gentry is such a mastered form of the fine arts,” she added.
Lulla took two months to design the entire look.
“I did a lot of research on South Indian royalty and the whole look is inspired by royalty. I have draped two silk saris together in red and peach and emerald green and hot pink and have used a lot of heavy gold jewellery,” said the designer.
