The toughest outfits in Bollywood!

Madhuri Dixit calls him every time she wants a special one -- be it for her wedding or a comeback performance.

Priyanka Chopra insists on him for her stage performances. And Shilpa Shetty spends hours discussing animal prints with him.

Meet fashion designer Reza Shariffi.

Reza has worked on numerous films like Hum Tum, Gaja Gamini, Devdas, Hey! Ram and Kya Kool Hai Hum. He even bagged the National Award for Madhuri Dixit's outfit in Dole re (Devdas).

And, while designing comes easily to him, Reza claims there have been stressful times too. "There was a song in the film Indian, where I had to dress Kamal Haasan as nine grooms from different states in India. That was tough, as we had to make sure nothing was wrong. It's easy to put together garments for a Maharashtrian groom in Maharashtra. But it's not that easy to make a Manipuri wedding outfit, sitting here in Maharashtra. Besides, film costumes are always done at the last hour."

The designer picks five of the toughest outfits he has worked on so far.
