Gear up to see Nargis Fakhri in a never seen before avatar in Banjo! The actress will be seen wearing a nauvari sari, a typical Maharashtrian attire, in Eros International’s upcoming musical drama Banjo. Riteish Deshmukh plays a Maharashtrian street musician, a Banjo player, in the film and in this particular scene he dreams about Nargis in the attire as he imagines her as his wife. Costume designer Divya Gambhir designed Nargis’s nauvari look and it took her over two hours to get ready. The actress plays the role of Chris, a DJ, from New York. Director Ravi Jadhav says, “I always try to carry the image of Maharashtra in my cinema and in Banjo too, one shall get to see many elements of the Maharashtrian culture. I personally believe and feel that Nargis looks extremely beautiful and elegant in the sari.”
Banjo, produced by Eros International and directed by Ravi Jadhav starring Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri releases on 23rd September.
