Four times National Award-winning designer Neeta Lulla, who has worked on over 300 films, says she would like to make a romantic-comedy movie some day. In over three decades of styling and designing, Lulla has worked with more than 90 actors including Sridevi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. No wonder why she said, “I am from Bollywood, people associate me with Bollywood and people close to me are from Bollywood.” Not that she hasn’t worked with international talent. Her past patrons also include singer Akon, model Tyra Banks and rapper Wiz Khalifa.
And making a movie is something that she would ‘love’ to do. “(The cast) depends on the script. But I would like to make a rom-com. I like the genre as it transports you to the land of fun and free spirit,” Lulla shared in an interview. “But right now there are expansion plans. I also teach fashion. I can’t give that up,” she added. The ace designer just had actress Kangana Ranaut as her guest for the launch of her store here. “I worked with Kangana in ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’. She is a woman of substance and an all-rounder. I admire such women,” said Lulla. ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut made beige hot with this vintage-inspired look, and it has all our attention
The designer’s new store in Delhi’s luxury destination, the DLF Emporio mall in Vasant Kunj, is an extension of House Of Neeta Lulla. When asked, what took her so long to open her own store in the capital, she said, “I do a lot of films, bridal and couture. I have always wanted to be in Delhi but I was looking for the right location. I have been wanting DLF Emporio for the longest time. I do have a lot of clients in Delhi who come to Mumbai as well. But I am happy to be in Delhi now,” said designer, popularly known as ‘Czarina of Indian Fashion’
