always like to decide what their husbands
wear. They seem to know what suits
their husband’s best. This has
been proved in the Tamil film industry
where many stars have had their outfits
designed or chosen by their better
halves. The list includes Superstar
Rajnikanth who used to have his outfits
picked by his wife Latha Rajnikanth.
Captain Vijayakanth too trusted his wife when
it came to a choice of costumes. Sarika and
Vani Ganapathy too have designed clothes for
Kamal. The list goes on. Now the bug has bitten
Ultimate Star and his wife.
costumes in Pongal release Aalwar have been
designed by Shalini. Ajit plays an attender
at a hospital in the movie. For most of the
movie, Ajith will be seen in the plain white
uniform of the attender. Naturally the question
arises about Shalini’s role, after all
there is nothing much to design in a white shirts
and trousers which are anyway supposed to look
grimy and overused. Well, Shalini has taken
care of what Ajith wears in the colorful song
sequences opposite Asin. As per reports from
the sets of the movie, no effort has been spared
in making the songs look glittering and grand.
When most of the movie has been shot within
the glum environment of a hospital such songs
will be needed to liven up things on screen.
When Aalwar releases for Pongal we will come
to know whether Shalini really knows what suits
Ajith best. She has proved herself as an actress
and more recently as a badminton player, let
us see how she fares as a designer.
