Bollywood brides who sported heavy lehengas in movies
Being an actor is not easy and comes with its own set of challenges and difficulties. While actors go through many physical transformations for each role, they also have to sit for hours to get their hair and makeup perfect and shoot for a long time wearing heavy costumes. Here are 5 Bollywood brides, who wore very heavy bridal couture in their films.
Anushka Sharma in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil: Anushka looks stunning in the bridal attire in the song Channa Mereya in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, but shooting for the song was not easy for the actress. Her bridal lehenga reportedly weighed 20 kilos and she had to climb up and down the stairs (of the palace they were shooting in) wearing this heavy lehenga for the four days they shot for this song.
Saiyami Kher in Mirzya: Shooting for the marriage and eloping sequence was no cakewalk for this debutante. Saiyami wore a Sabyasachi lehenga for the scenes and it weighed 14 kilos! The actress still managed to shoot (even run) effortlessly wearing the heavy costume.
Nargis Fakhri in Rockstar: Nargis turned into a beautiful Kashmiri bride in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar, complete with a jaw-dropping, traditional bridal dress, a dejhor (Kashmiri jewellery) and tarang (cap). Designers Manish Malhotra and Aki Narula roamed in the streets of Srinagar for days to put together this perfect look.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Jodha Akbar: Aishwarya made a beautiful, royal Mughal bride in Jodha Akbar as she wore a zardosi and stone-studded bridal wear teamed with kundan jewellery. The elaborate (and very heavy) outfit was designed by Neeta Lulla.
Rani Mukherjee in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna: Rani made a gorgeous bride in KANK, but shooting with a heavy bridal attire was not easy, thank heavens she didn’t have to shoot an elaborate scene wearing it! The royal red costume with intricate embroidery and a stunning green border in the lehenga was designed by Manish Malhotra.
