National-award winning designer Neeta Lulla has styled almost all film celebrities but its Bollywood diva Sridevi who has been an inspiration to her.
"Someone who has inspired me in my work among the actresses is Sridevi. She has taught me a lot. I have worked with her for 12-13 years. I learnt a lot from her. And as a newcomer in the film industry, she was a big support to me and I will always cherish it," Lulla told the PTI.
"I loved designing her each and every moment. Beyond her styling, she is a great actress and the aura that she exhibited on screen is tremendous," she said. Sridevi had walked the ramp for Lulla and is spotted on almost all her birthday parties. Lulla, who has designed for several films and won four national awards, says it's difficult to choose which project was the most challenging for her.
"When you style 80-90 actors it is difficult to choose which one was challenging. Each film I have done.. almost 300 films has been challenging. Each film has graduated me to do lot more and learn. For me to judge one film is not right," she said.
Her next project is Rajinikanth's 'Kochadaiyaan'. The Tamil period film is directed by Soundarya R Ashwin. The film will feature Rajinikanth alongside an ensemble cast, including R Sarathkumar, Aadhi, Deepika Padukone, Shobana, Rukmini Vijayakumar, Jackie Shroff and others. "Kochidiyaan is a great film and has got a different technique where there is lot of detailing.. so there is lot of work that is required for it. Like sketching itself took six months. I am quite excited about it," Lulla said.
