Given that the fashion police is usually up in arms against Tinsel town celebrities, particularly during awards galas, it was unusual, bold even, for Sonakshi Sinha to sport a multi-coloured floral nine-yard for the International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) in New York earlier this year.
Sinha received flak for her unusual outfit until it was later revealed by a celebrity photographer that the look was part of her upcoming Vashu Bhagnani project, based on the coveted awards night. Responding to the criticism, Sinha tells mid-day, “There was a lot of confusion over my outfits, because, one was for the shoot and the other was what I chose for the event.
When people will watch the film, it will make sense.” The IIFA film, believed to be India’s first staged reality film, pairs Sinha alongside Diljit Dosanjh. Sinha says she couldn’t refuse the film owing to her long-standing association with IIFA organisers, Wizcraft. “Also, the concept is interesting, yet borderline bizarre. Nobody knew that an actual film was being shot live on the green carpet. It was funny as fans were calling out to us and we couldn’t react because we were in character.”
