Malhotra designed Kajol‘s costumes within the movie, and from her ethnic fits to the shiny inexperienced lehnga she wore within the track “Mehndi lagake rakhna”, virtually all costumes he created for the actress went on to change into a rage.
“For a movie, crucial half is the script. It is the narrative and the imaginative and prescient of the director. There was one thing so refreshing in regards to the movie and their characters that was a golden alternative to do one thing new. I’m at all times decided after I come into movies. I might wish to do one thing that stands out and provides all characters a glance that can keep on. When Adi (director Aditya Chopra) narrated the DDLJ script, we went loopy about it,” Malhotra recalled.
“Adi was very clear that he wished Kajol to be actual, however but there’s a intelligent quotient to her, and that synergy, I feel, got here throughout strongly in DDLJ’s costumes that had been relatable and but there was one thing new and particular about them. I feel that is what stayed on with the characters. It was actual but it had a sure dreamy, sure aspirational and elegance factor, and that labored,” the designer added.

They had been younger, they had been recent, they had been very new for the truth that he (Aditya) wished Kajol to put on glasses, he wished her occurring Euro rail — a conservative father permits her to do this. For Shah Rukh, travelling to India to get the woman — there have been so many excessive moments within the movie, moments that the youth linked with. I feel Aditya has nice understanding of the medium of filmmaking in addition to what the viewers desires, and it was enjoyable engaged on this movie,” Malhotra added.
