Sonakshi says, “Eka has understood the quirks of the character really well and applied it to her fashion. I was really happy with all the elements she put together to give Jinal a very different, quirky and individual style, a style she can call her own.”

She further adds, “The character is supposed to be somebody who is an aspiring fashion designer. To go with her personality, we added certain quirks to her look too and that really added to the character.”

Stylist Eka Lakhani says, Sonakshi’s look was supposed to be fun, quirky yet it had to have a slightly ‘off’ or slightly ‘weird’ feel to it. So while we made her look fun, we also gave a slightly quirky vibe to her overall look.
