The deglamourised look seems to be in vogue in Bollywood. After Sushmita Sen, Isha Koppikar goes demure in 'Darling'.
The actress is the typical middle class Indian housewife in saris sans make-up in the film, which is incidentally directed by mentor Ram Gopal Varma.
Komal Shahani, who has designed her new look, found her to be completely in tune with what she wanted.
Komal said: 'Isha was totally in her character and I found her very easy to mould. Keeping Isha's complexion in mind, I gave her colours like aubergine, scarlet red and other bright colours. Her character is soft in the movie, which is contrasted with vibrant coloured clothes. I've tried to maintain the typical housewife look but with a hint of style.'
