It doesn't take much to make Mallika Sherawat look hot. The actress has always looked sexy in her movies, from Khwahish to Pyaar Ke Side Effects.
But her turn in Mehbooba, the song in Himesh Reshammiya's Aap Ka Suroor raises the notch even higher. Mallika looks stunning in her version of Helen's dance in Ramesh Sippy's Sholay (1975).
And it's all thanks to fashion designer Ashley Rebello.
Ashley has worked with many stars like Preity Zinta, Rani Mukerji, Priyanka Chopra, Karisma Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen, but he shares an especially good relationship with Mallika.
The duo have worked together in quite a few films.
Ashley tells us about his favourite Mallika designs. Have a look.
Aap Kaa Suroor: The Moviee: The Real Luv Story
Mallika's most-talked about outfit in Aap Kaa Suroor is the one she wears in the Mehbooba song.
The briefing given to me was that the outfits had to be similar to that worn by Helen in the original song. So I designed an outfit with the same colour combinations.
But after Mallika's dance around the campfire, the song shifts to a casino. The costume changes to a skin coloured gown, with embroidery at strategic places.
Mallika trusted me totally for these outfits, and did not give me much advice.
