Overpowering perfume, air kissing, designer outfits, accessories… amidst all this, Soha Ali Khan’s simplicity stood out. Dressed in a leopard print black and white top and black skirt, the petite actress was in the city recently attending a few events.
At Apparao Gallery, Soha launched the latest edition of the magazine enhance interiors, checked out the Strand collection of furniture and spoke a bit about art and design in cinema. Quizzed about art, she replied with a smile, “You do know I failed art in Class 10, don’t you?” On a serious note, she added that a lot of work goes into the aesthetic aspects and authenticity of a set. Set designers spend a lot of time putting them up. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is not just a director. He is like a choregrapher and painter too. So his films look like paintings. For instance in ‘Devdas’, each frame is like a painting.”
Mother Sharmila is a major collector of art and according to Soha, the house is full of paintings. “I must start collecting too. I just have two water colours of my university and a print of M.F. Hussain saab’s work. I live in Bombay and there’s very little space. That’s my excuse!”
