Isha Talwar has been getting a lot of rave reviews for her Rajasthani look in her latest show, Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo. The actress revealed that her prime reference for getting the look right was the 1993 classic movie Rudaali. which had Dimple Kapadia in the lead. Not only was the look in the show her reference but also motivated to recreate the exact look of Dimple Kapadia for a shoot she did. For Isha, it was an honour to be adapting Dimple’s look while she shared the screen space with the veteran actress herself.
Isha says, “The story is based in Rajasthan and so my character, Badi Bahu, has a particular kind of dressing. To get the look right, my prime source of reference is Dimple ma’am’s look in Rudaali. Post the show, I wanted to recreate the exact look that Dimple Ma’am had in the show. I rewatched Rudaali for my research and then I am sharing screen space with the legend herself. It was not just an honour but also overwhelming and, of course, I was equally startled at the same time.”
The series is a crime drama that revolves around the Rani Cooperative, a cocaine-making factory that pretends to make handicrafts and herbs. The series also stars Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar, Deepak Dobriyal, Monica Dogra and Naseeruddin Shah in prominent roles. Isha plays the role of Bijilee, aka Badi Bahu. The show is out on Disney+ Hotstar.
