Sneak peak: Anushka Sharma’s 35-kg gown in Bombay Velvet

Here’s the much talked about 35-kg couture gown that Anushka Sharma wore for Bombay Velvet.

A photo circulating on Social media , shows Anushka’s grand entry on the stage, in a green sequin couture gown with flame like gold detailing by Niharika Bhasin Khan.

It will be for the first time that we will see Anushka draped in opulence and grandeur. She has mostly played bubbly girl-next-door roles till now.

 According to reports, Anushka apparently had to struggle a lot with the weight of the garment and needed some help getting around the sets. Although she did not have to dance in it, the outfit apparently took two-and-half hours to dress.

Niharika, who won the National Film Award for best costume designer for The Dirty Picture has specially designed the 140 costumes for Anushka for the film.

The actress plays a jazz singer of 1960s in the film co-starring Ranbir kapoor , Raveena Tandon and Karan Johar.
