Designer duo Rimple and Harpreet Narula, who have designed the costumes in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati are amazed at Deepika Padukone‘s (who plays Rani Padmvati of Chittor) perseverance and grit, to shoot for 12-14 hours at a stretch each day for over 100 days, while carrying such heavy outfits and jewellery. The actress would sit patiently and not complain, even once.
Each outfit, cost over Rs.20 lakh (approximately) and weighed over 30 kilos. Deepika has earlier worn a lehenga in Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela, designed by Anju Modi which weighed 30 kg but it was only for the poster photo-shoot. She has also worn armour as a warrior in Bajirao Mastani which weighed 20kg but again for a couple scenes. In Padmavati, the actress will be seen wearing such heavy costumes throughout the entire film.
