I wasn't nervous while doing the film. I thrive on challenges and Jodhaa Akbar was one project that really excited me.
I designed the clothes myself. The accessories, however, were tricky so Tanishq (a leading jewellery brand) stepped in and gave me inputs. Gowarikar also gave me inputs. The accessories were made of gold, cut diamond, ruby, kundan and jade.
As the Mughal era was known for its grandiosity, we used a lot of warm tones though we were careful not to go overboard.
The costumes and accessories were quite heavy but the actors took it in their stride.
