We all know that plenty of work goes behind an actor’s stunning screen presence and every bit of effort is taken by costume designers to make them look a certain way.
It is a skill that requires a sharp eye for detail and a unique creative talent to make a star look effortlessly elegant and beautiful; all they get is a brief of the character, and from a mere description they bring the persona to life.
One such costume designer is Anu Vardhan, who recently worked with Nayanthara in the OTT-hit ‘Mookuthi Amman’. An institution by herself, the designer has worked in the film industry for two decades and has an unmatchable eye for aesthetics.
The costume designer has worked in ‘Asoka’, ‘Billa’, ‘Vivegam’, ‘Vedalam’, ‘Viswasam’, ‘Bigil’, ‘Kaala’, ‘Kabali’ and ‘Darbar’ to name a few.
Anu has received rave reviews for her work in the RJ Balaji-NJ Saravanan directorial and shares her experiences with us.
