Actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who will be seen as a South Indian royal in a campaign, says royalty is something that always intrigued her. The actress has been roped for a South Indian textile brand, Pothys. For its campaign shoot, she will be essaying a South Indian royal.
Drawing inspiration from the founder of Bengaluru, Kempe Gowda’s lineage, fashion designer Nishka Lulla has put together Tamannaah’s look. “The only time I was essayed aristocracy in the creative format was in ‘Baahubali’. This time around it’s for a commercial ad shoot and I’m very impressed with the way Nishka has curated my entire ensemble,” Tamannaah said in a statement.
“Royalty is something that always intrigued me to a great extent. I’ve always wanted to be part of a period drama and playing gentry is such a mastered form of the fine arts,” she added. Lulla took two months to design the entire look.
“I did a lot of research on South Indian royalty and the whole look is inspired by royalty. I have draped two silk saris together in red and peach and emerald green and hot pink and have used a lot of heavy gold jewellery,” said the designer.
On the work front, Tamannaah Bhatia will be seen in couple of Telugu films – Queen Again and Naa Nuvve. Queen Again in the Telugu remake of Bollywood hit ‘Queen’ and is being directed by Neelakantha Reddy. In Naa Nuvve, Tamannaah will be seen alongside Nandamuri Kalyan Ram which is being directed by acclaimed ad filmmaker Jayendra.
Tamannaah just had a release in Tamil alongside Chiyaan Vikram titled ‘Sketch’. The film fared decently at the box office and impressed the audiences with its racy action episodes. The film had Tamannaah playing a girl-next-door role and was well appreciated by Tamil movie-buffs and general audiences.
