Yash Raj Films forthcoming release is “Dil Bole Hadippa” directed by Anurag Singh and features Shahid Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee, Anupam Kher, Rakhi Sawant, Sherlyn Chopra and others. The first look of the film is released which shows Rani Mukherji in Sardarji get up. In this film, Rani puts on a mele Sikh avatar to prove that women are as competent as men.
Rani’s Sardarji look has been styled by Mike Stringer, a top costumer and makeover stylist in England. He has worked for films like “Dhoom 2”, “Gandhi My Father” and Hollywood hits like “Flick”, “Outpost”, “Hyperdrive” among others.
Since the last couple of years, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have donned the Sikh roles with turban and beard. There had been occasions when comedians like Jonny Lever put on the Sardarji look. Now in “Dil Bole Hadippa” Rani Mukherjee does the same and will be the first Bollywood heroine to do so.
