Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - Yashika Mathur yashika.math­urn@hin­dus­tan­times.com

There is noth­ing un­usual about ac­tors don­ning mul­ti­ple cos­tumes to fit their part. But re­cently, TV ac­tor Aashka Goradia ( above) suf­fered swelling on her shoul­ders af­ter wear­ing a heavy gown and crown while shoot­ing for her show.

“I wear a corset that weighs 3 kgs and a crown weigh­ing 2kgs. I also carry a wand that weighs 7 kgs, which is quite heavy. I have some swelling on my shoul­ders due to the cos­tume,” says Aashka, who will be seen play­ing Bhayankar Pari ( inset) in a fan­tasy show. How­ever, the ac­tor is not com­plain­ing, as she is very happy with the kind of grandeur her char­ac­ter has. “I have been given one of the most beau­ti­ful cos­tumes on In­dian TV. I ab­so­lutely love the look that I am don­ning in this show. I tend to for­get ev­ery­thing once I am in my cos­tume,” she says.

The ac­tor says that her cos­tume is inspired from Hol­ly­wood star An­gelina Jolie’s out­fit in Malef­i­cent ( 2014). “The cos­tume in Mal­e­fi­cient is de­signed so well that I watched that movie again and again. I love An­gelina’s work so much. She is one of the few ac­tors I idolise,” she says.
