I gave my 100% for designing 'Gun Pe Done': Chandni S Sahu

News Helpline | April, 09 2015

Chandni, the costume designer of Gun Pe Done revisited the period of veteran actor Feroz Khan to get the perfect look for the film. Cowboy hats, bell bottoms, black leather bands had to be apt according to the script and budget. Designing clothes according to the previous generation fashion trends is invariably a challenge.
Chandni says, “In Gun Pe Done, turning Jimmy Shergill into Feroz Khan sahab was the biggest challenge for me, he is commercial and intense actor, so creating western genre star in tech world is risky and challenging. I gave my 100% for designing Gun Pe Done.”
Chandni shared Abhik’s view, “Abhik Bhanu told me that he wanted Jimmy in western cowboy persona. And who else has epitomized cowboy than legendary Feroz Khan. I had to keep in mind today’s style also so that people identify with him.”
Chandni added, “You can see the cowboy boots, bell bottoms, black coloured leather bands in accessories or the dog tags, necklaces he has worn on his neck. We wanted a swagger with a waistcoat, which is classic western look.”
About the other cast members like Vijay Raaz and Sanjay Mishra, Chandni said, “There was no reference point for Vijay, so I traveled to a lot of places like Mohammad Ali Road, Bhindi Bazaar and even Chandni Chowk. Eventually I got lucky with some real life inspiration.”
About eccentric Sanjay Mishra she said, “Abhik wanted him look, act and behave like local liquor mafia with modern twist. So we gave him hoodie with a dhoti, which is fusion, thus making it an interesting look.”
Leading lady, glamorous Tara Alisha Berry praised designer Chandni’s efforts. Tara said, “Chandni has done a superb job creating authentic design. This hasn’t been seen in India at least in the recent past and so it is very exciting.”
“Chandni created a whole new, never seen before designs, making it edgy, authentic and real. Having imaginative ideas and making them real, take a lot of talent. I really appreciate this girl Chandni because she has done such a great job. Her research is brilliant and unique, designs are authentic and outcome is just as brilliant.”
The Film is directed by Abhik Bhanu, to be produced by Asif Kazi and Manoj Menon under the banner Pioneer Films and Entertainment LLP.
