Neeta Lulla Shares The Backstory Of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Lehengas Created For Jodhaa Akbar


Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan starrer 2008 historical-romance film Jodhaa Akbar was a great hit and did fantastically well at box office. The film also won many awards including seven Star Screen Awards, five Filmfare Awards and two National Film Awards. The film showed the beautiful chemistry between Hrithik Roshan, who played the role of Mughal Emperor Jalal-ud-din Muhammad Akbar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who played the role of Rajput princess Jodhaa Bai.

Neela Lulla, who designed the costumes of Aishwarya Rai in her 1999 films Taal and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, also designed the actress' lehengas in Jodhaa Akbar. Talking about Aishwarya's look, recently, Neeta shared the backstory of how the creation of her lehengas was done.

She wrote, 'An important aspect that I had to keep in mind while making the garments, was that the fabrics could not have a shine as the DOP Kiran Deohans was using natural light for the majority of the film. While working on @aishwaryaraibachchan_arb look the challenge was to give a Matt yet rich look to her lehengas so we used organic cotton and mul for the base and embroidered it with details of Kasab and Resham work to create a brocade look then adding gota patti Kundan and metal embellishments to further add the ornateness of the details. Jewellery was specially worked on for each look by Tanishq and coordinated with each outfit, the weight was so much that each piece had to be tacked in place carefully onto the dress post wearing the entire look so that it did not weigh down on the neck.'

Neeta Lulla also shared some pictures of the actress in different lehengas. So, let us take a close look at it.
