'Rahul Mahajan asked for non-itchy wear for swayamvar'
Comfort was his first priority informs designer
Designer Shabina Khan says that Rahul Mahajan, son of the slain Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan, has given standing instructions that he wants to wear only non-itchy clothes for his reality show "Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega".
"Rahul was not very fussy and choosy with the designs. He had just laid a very simple ground rule that he does not want any itchy fabric to be used as comfort was his first priority," Shabina told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
"Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega" went on air on Feb 1 on NDTV Imagine.
"He let me explore my creativity, in appropriation with his personality. I used warm fabrics with rich textures and splashed a lot of colours."
Shabina Khan has worked as designer for more than 30 films, including "Hum Aapke Hain Koun?", "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" and "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham".
"It was a wonderful experience to work with Rahul. He is very talkative and fun-loving person."
When asked about his looks and personality, Shabina said: "Rahul doesn't represent a high profile metrosexual hunk. He has very sweet middle-class look (Mumbaiya looks) which helps him appeal to the masses and relate more."
Shabina started designing for Salman Khan initially and has also designed for stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Madhuri Dixit.
Shabina's forthcoming projects are Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Chenab Gandhi", Vipul Shah's "Action Replay" and Sajid Nadiadwala's "Housefull".
