“Nayanthara is a thorough professional who knows what she wants and does not like to be stressed out in the last minute” states the 40 year old designer, Chaitanya Rao. A name that is heard in the elite circles of Kollywood and is the most preferred designer of many, Chaitanya Rao is the designer who worked on the look and the costumes of Nayanthara in Anjali C.B.I.
A strong believer in the statement, ” What you wear is who you are” Chaitanya entered the world of glamour at a very young age. Chaitanya had to work on Nayanthara’s costumes to get her personality and her character just right. Since the actress takes the effort to look different in every project she takes up, Chaitanya made extra efforts to keep her look different and edgy.
Nayanthara had a very clear idea about how she wanted to look in Anjali C.B.I. They had a detailed discussion about how she was going to look as a cop in this movie. She gave him a ton of references as to how she wanted her look as a C.B.I. officer in this movie.
In the movie, Anjali is a C.B.I. officer who settled in Bangalore, which is primarily known for its modern working women crowd. Therefore, her costumes were kept minimal with a shirt and a sweater including a few jackets. Earthy colours were chosen to design her jackets to match her strong and grounded personality in the movie.
With short hair and shades of burgundy in her locks, Nayanthara managed to look feminine yet edgy at the same time.
