The designers get back to Bollywood after 15 years with Veere Di Wedding

When you have fashionistas like Sonam, Rhea and Kareena in one movie, then top designers will run to them like a moth to a flame. The Kapoor sisters, Rhea and Sonam, have managed to get designer duo -Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, on board, to design for their film “Veere Di Wedding” (VID). The designers will be planning the costumes for a film after 15 years, the last time theydid the costumes for a film was Devdas, for which they won the National Award for Best Costume Design.

“We are looking forward to VID. It’s an exciting project as we are dressing all the girls in the movie. We haven’t work on a film since Devdas as couture is where we belong and we have been busy with growing our brands “abujanisandeepkhosla” and recently “Asal”. When Rhea approached us, it was a yes, without even thinking, as we love that she has changed the entire celebrity styling scene in India,” says the duo

The designers will be working on all the Indian clothes in the film, customizing the outfits for the ensemble star cast, infusing their signature Indian craftsmanship and textile heritage with European tailored silhouettes. While not much is known at this juncture, sources reveal that Abu- Sandeep will be opening up their design archives from years ago and digging out looks for the film.
