Below is a link to a video on the making of Bride and Prejudice from the perspective of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who plays the role of Lalita Bakshi, this adaptations Elizabeth Bennet. Within this video Bachchan describes her process in becoming a part of this film and how it is a modern day spin on Pride and Prejudice with the flare of a bollywood film.
BRIDE AND PREJUDICE COSTUME DESIGN
The costume designer for this show definitely had A LOT on their hands. The wonderful man behind the design is none other than Eduardo Castro. Most famously known for Once Upon A Time.
Designing costumes for a Bollywood film in India is WAY different than designing for an American film here in the states. Production moves A LOT faster over there.
“In India, ”everything is done overnight!” says costume designer Eduardo Castro (Kama Sutra), who used more than 12,000 yards of material for the film. ”You can have an outfit designed and drawn up, and by the next day, you’ll have it all embroidered. [In America], you have to wait weeks and months to have the same piece done.””
This is very suprising because embroidering is a very tedious process that takes a lot of time. The fact that it happens overnight in those productions is mind blowing!
