Katrina Kaif, Bollywood's new style icon who is usually seen in western clothes, has shot an entire song in saris for Singh Is Kinng. The actress says she loved the experience.
"Director Anees Bazmi was very clear that he wanted me to have an Indian look for the song. And what could have made me look more Indian than a sari? I thoroughly loved it. A sari makes a woman look so graceful and feminine," Katrina said.
"Also, in the song Akshay imagines us dancing in the mysterious locales of Egypt," she added.
An industry source said: "All popular songs that Katrina has done so far in her films have either had her in casual or formal wear. This is the first time that she has shot a song in a sari."
Fashion designer Manish Malhotra has designed the saris that Katrina has flaunted in the song.
"This is for the first time that Manish has designed a costume for me. And his creations are just wonderful," said Katrina.
Coincidentally, the song has been shot at the same location in Egypt where Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol filmed the popular song Suraj hua madham for Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
Manish was also the one behind Kajol's lovely saris in the song.
