Sonam Kapoor’s personal touch
For Rakeysh Mehra’s Delhi-6, Sonam Kapoor will be seen wearing a dress that her maternal grandmother had worn during her marriage, a long time ago. Rakeysh was in for a surprise when a normally shy and reticent Sonam refused to wear an outfit that he and the
producers had arranged for her.
Our source said,”Sonam did not like the fit and the finish of the particular outfit, which was given to her. So, she told Rakeyesh that she wanted to wear something else instead.”
Rakeysh had no time to organise a new outfit for Sonam. Thankfully, Sonam solved the problem herself. She told Rakeysh that her naani (maternal grandmother in Delhi) had worn a similar outfit at the time of her wedding and if she could wear that outfit. Naturally, Rakeysh was skeptical as he wondered if the outfit was still intact and usable. He agreed to let Sonam wear the outfit after she assured him that it was in good condition.
Sonam’s grandmother was only too happy to lend her the outfit. Our source added, “Fortunately, the dress fit Sonam so perfectly that it didn’t require any alterations and it didn’t look too outdated either.”
Although Rakeysh heaved a sigh of relief, certain shots had to be canned again. It did upset the schedule a bit but they finally got what they wanted.
