The makers of WAR are trying to ensure the movie is not just high on adrenalin and a male-gazing feast. The reference is to the presence of Vaani Kapoor, who plays Hrithik Roshan’s romantic interest in the movie.
Pointing to how no expense has been spared, the actress has been styled by top fashion stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania, who has made Vaani wear an eclectic Elie Saab gown! Lebanese Elie Saab is an iconic fashion designer who dresses the likes of Beyonce, Kate Middleton, Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Emilia Clarke, Kendall Jenner, and Taylor Swift.
Anaita Shroff says, “There is an amazing scene you see where she is wearing an incredible Elie Saab gown and if looks could kill then Vaani is the one!”
The brief was to make Vaani look at her sexiest best in War.
“Vaani plays the role of someone who has always enjoyed dressing up, she is someone who has played with fashion and we see her in many avatars. For Vaani, I did a lot of mixing and matching. It was fun, almost vacay, dressing when you travel to a city. I think it gave her character the gravitas but yet it didn’t need to be very serious.”
There is bound to be pressure on WAR, after the reactions to Saaho. While the latter is expected to rake in the moolah thanks to the pre-release publicity and hype, the chatter around the Prabhas-starrer has not been positive. Touted as the biggest action entertainer of the year, WAR is set to be a visual spectacle for quintessential action cinema lovers who like to watch the big scale, the edge of the seat entertainers.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, WAR is set to release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil on October 2.
