Yes, you read it right! Not one or two or three, Siddharth will be seen in 25 different looks in his upcoming Vasantha Balan’s period flick ‘Kaaviya Thalaivan’.
It is a painful task to design the costumes for a period movie, and the storyline of Siddharth – Prithviraj starrer is a unique one and there aren’t many references available for the film, Says Niranjani Agathiyan – Costume Designer.
“I was shuttling libraries, watched old movies, surfed the internet, and referred a lot of books. The whole experience was quite hectic, but also gratifying. I had to devise the wardrobe for both onstage and offstage scenes in the film.
We have used 25 appearances for Siddharth alone with a different set of ornaments for each.” Sigaram Thodu which is getting released on this Friday will mark Niranjani’s debut in K-town as costume designer while she is an integral part of G.V’s ‘Pencil’ &‘Trisha Illana Nayanthara’.
