As movie pro­mo­tions are an in­te­gral part of a project now, how do you de­cide on the looks sported by ac­tors dur­ing pro­mo­tion?

We usu­ally go with dif­fer­ent and eas­ier looks for pro­mo­tions since the sched­ule is al­ways hec­tic. As pro­mo­tions are al­ways just be­fore the movie re­lease, I try to avoid repli­cat­ing any look from the movie to avoid killing the nov­elty of the look. It’s all team work—once the clothes are de­cided, the hair and make-up team, along with the ac­tors, de­cide what look works best for that day.

What projects are you work­ing on cur­rently?

I’ve just wrapped up Gully Boys with Alia Bhatt. I’m si­mul­ta­ne­ously work­ing with her on Brah­mas­tra and Kalank.

Tell us some­thing about your own hair ex­per­i­ments.

I’ve been colour­ing my hair for years now; the colours I use could be in­spi­ra­tions from some­thing I’ve seen, how I’m feeling, the weather or purely in­stinc­tive. Right now, I’m let­ting my hair stay on with its cur­rent colour... but you never know!

What style and colour trends are you crush­ing on cur­rently?

I’m ab­so­lutely in love with short hair but I think curls are back in a big way. I have and will al­ways love big hair! When it comes to colour, I be­lieve it should have tones of the per­son’s per­son­al­ity. For in­stance, I’ve al­ways been known to be the girl with colour­ful hair—I love colour!

Tell us about Alia Bhatt’s look in Raazi.

Raazi is set in the ‘70s...Meghna Gulzar was very clear that she didn’t want Alia to have any bouf­fants. Alia plays a young girl in the film, hence we kept it sim­ple with long beau­ti­ful hair. We also wanted to make sure it never looks done up, ex­cept for those scenes where it was ab­so­lutely re­quired.
