First look: Sonakshi Sinha's retro look in Himmatwala


By Hindustan Times

We all loved the era of the 80's where tight leather pants, shiny dresses and discos were in style. Well, Sajid Khan is all set to make you groove to the 80s style in his disco song 'Thank God It's Friday' which has Sonakshi Sinha dancing to the tunes in his upcoming film Himmatwala. In the 80s, Sridevi and Parveen Babi were leading the industry with their charisma and style. That is the reason why Sajid Khan decided to give Sonakshi Sinha the look of these 2 popular actresses. Manish Malhotra has designed these looks for Sonakshi and well looking at the picture we can say that he has managed to give her just the perfect look.

The first avatar of Sonakshi is that of a vintage sequined golden dress and headband which strikingly resembles Parveen Babi's look in the song 'Pyaar Karne Wale' from the film Shaan. And the other look where she is wearing black tight pants, jacket and boots is inspired from Sridevi's disco look from Chaalbaaz.

When asked Sonakshi about the look and doing the song, she said, "Manish has done a fantastic job and I absolutely love my look. I also watched the original videos of these 2 songs before I started shooting. I would even watch other songs in the vanity to understand the dancing and the style of that era."

Himmatwala is directed by Sajid Khan, starring Ajay Devgn and Tammanah. The film is produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Vashu Bhagnani and is all set to hit the theatres on March 29, 2013.
