Actress Soha Ali Khan who will be next seen in movie based on the Indra Gandhi assassination went shopping on the streets of Chandigarh to pick up clothes for the film ’31st October’ to give her role an authentic Punjabi touch.
Soha plays a very average Punjabi girl based in 80’s and mother of two kids. The script demanded her to play a character of a simple Punjabi girl, so she took this decision to go for street shopping in Chandigarh to make her look very real and authentic as her character demanded a de-glam look in the movie.
Soha picked up clothes which were worn by average punjabi girls. They were not expensive and gaudy. From dupattas to jootis, Soha made sure to pick all the required material she could lay her eyes on. She later said that this is actually going to help her understand the role much better.
She said, “It was a very new experience for me, going on the streets of Punjab and buying little things for myself which not only added the Punjabi taste to my attire but also impacted my personality for my role as a Sikhni. I wanted to get completely absorbed in my character and I felt it was good to take those little initiatives, moreover the people of Punjab were very kind and encouraging.” – CINEWS
