Mumbai: A swanky-looking Priyanka Chopra in red hair, Harman Baweja’s chiseled body in a well-fitted, leather-like tee and pants complete with heavy boots and biking gloves; and a pink teddy sporting a blue mohawk hairdo clinging to Priyanka… well that’s the look the actors are sporting in the futuristic sci-fi LoveStory 2050.
Director Harry Baweja and designer Thea have outshined them all by predicting fashion for almost 40 years in the future. Sharing the first look of the actors, Baweja explains, "We spent more than six months trying to figure out the right look."
"The idea was to give them a look that people could imagine and relate to in the future. We didn’t want them resembling aliens or looking as if they’ve landed from Star Trek. The film is set in the future, but it’s not about space travel," the filmmaker adds.
Being made on a lavish budget of more than Rs 40 crores, the film travels back and forth in time. "The biggest challenge was to push the boundaries of fashion and take it 40 years forward without losing the essence of the characters and keeping them in the believable zone at the same time," explains Thea.
