Actress Rasika Dugal, whose look in web series "Mirzapur" is styled on the late Meena Kumari from "Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam", says the late actress had a way of adding class to a sultry get-up.

In Amazon Prime's "Mirzapur", a story based in a lawless land where the trade of arms, ammunition and drugs is a part of normal life, Rasika will be seen playing the role of Beena Tripathi, wife of gang lord Pankaj Tripathi aka Kaleen Bhaiya.

The trailer suggests Rasika's character Beena is a daring and desirable woman, and her look is inspired by Meena Kumari's Choti Bahu portrayal in "Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam" and was modernised to suit today's time, read a statement.

Rasika said in a statement: "Meena Kumari was a legend. Choti bahu in 'Saheb Bibi Aur Ghulam' is one of my favourite performances in Indian cinema. She defined sultry in the most classy way. With Beena too, a lot more is happening than meets the eye though in a very different way. I'm happy with the way the look has turned out and excited for people to watch the series."
