'They'll tell me to open up the neckline but...': Neelam Kothari talks about wearing conservative outfits

Bollywood actress Neelam Kothari recently opened up about wearing conservative outfits when she was actively working in the film industry, something her stylists have found bothersome.

Neelam, who was a popular star of the 1980s and 1990s, made a comeback of sorts with Karan Johar's Netflix show 'Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives'. She also openly underwent an anti-ageing procedure on the show.

In her recent interview with Filmfare, Neelam said talked about how times have changed, including in the costume department of films.

The actress said that it was very different back in the day and the actors just had to look good. Adding that there was no concept for a particular look for a film and the attention given to film stars and their 'looks', Neelam said that if she were to play a village girl i.e. a gaon ki ladki, then there was a certain look but otherwise she had to just show up looking nice and pretty.

Neelam said that her aunt used to do her styling and all her necklines in most of her movies were up till the top of her neck. She said all her dresses were long and very conservative, adding that now she's a stylist's nightmare.

The 'Hum Saath Saath Hai' actress revealed that her stylists tell her to open up the neckline a little bit and she go 'no no no no'.

Neelam further stated that she is still extremely conservative and knows what kind of costume will look good on her.

Meanwhile, as Neelam gears up for Season 2 of 'Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives', she is also seriously considering her acting comeback.

While she has kept her lips sealed on any details, it is acceptable to say that she already has some projects in the pipeline and she will soon zero in on something interesting.
