In a complete departure from her glam doll image, actress Neha Dhupia turned traditional as she walked the ramp for designer Jaya Rathore in a bridal outfit at the ongoing WIFW here.
The actress donned a red and orange bridal lehenga with the dupatta over her head, looking very much like a demure bride-to-be.
“I was surprised when Jaya mam called me to walk for her very Indian collection, since I am seen wearing more of dresses and western outfits. I am feeling very beautiful, very elegant and ethnic right now. Its something I have never done before, I almost feel like crying,” said Dhupia.
The designer’s bright and colourful collection was a representative of the Indian vibrant colour palette with more of golden, green and red and orange.
“I chose Neha for the showstopper outfit as I needed somebody with very sharp features and she has that,” said Rathore.
The actress is busy with multiple projects in her hand and never-done-before roles.
“I have Action Replay in hand which has a completely retro look. Then I am also working in ‘With Love to Obama’ where I play a village girl for the first time, something I didn’t think I could do,” said Dhupia.
