Femme Fatale

The woman who ruined Akshaye's look is out to runi his look again in Shortcut:

The IPL season is over and Ameira Punvani is busy dressing up Bollywood that is content with films and does not care whether Shoaib Akhtar would bowl again or not, but the 20-something costume designer still has not got over her encounters with Kolkata Knight Riders.

Of late, she has done the crazy costumes of Akshaye Khanna in a few songs in Priyadarshan’s latest comic caper Mere Baap Pehle Aap and work is in full swing for Neeraj Vohra’s forthcoming film Shortkut that stars again Khanna and Amrita Rao. “Everybody says Akshaye is moody, but he was a pleasure to work with. I really had a good time working on the look of the film. Since it is a comedy, the look is very funky. Amrita, though, has a glamorous turn,” says Punwani.

Somehow the conversation veers to IPL and how she kitted out Knight Riders for their ad campaigns. “I can barely sit through a cricket match, so you can imagine the extent of my cricket knowledge. I think my gaffes entertained them thoroughly. For my part, I was surprised at how fashion conscious each of these stars was. Ricky Ponting, in particular, seemed pretty clued in about fashion,” she says. Punvani is equally in awe of the former India captain Sourav Ganguly. “I always thought he was aggressive and arrogant. But when I met him, I was totally taken in by his politeness,” she gushes. Her knowledge of cricket may still be scanty but hey, thankfully, there is evergreen Bollywood dying to look pretty.

Hmmm......Let's just hope that she hasn't spoiled the charming look of our Akshoo in Shortkut.
