Actress Shruti Haasan’s spokesperson has denied that she apparently had a disagreement with actress-stylist Gautami Tadimalla over the costumes for upcoming Kamal Haasan-starrer trilingual comedy Sabash Naidu. Gautami is a stylist on the project.
“Her role in her father’s film is that of a young, feisty gal who’s grown up in Los Angeles, who uses fashion as an expression of her quirky and devil may care attitude. Keeping this brief in mind, Gautami brought in a set of clothes for Shruti when the look test was happening in the pre production stage,” Shruti’s spokesperson said in a statement.
Based on the feedback given to the stylist, the core team mutually felt the look needed to be changed. “The specific feedback was shared with Gautami, who being a thorough professional understood and brought in a new lot of clothes which seemed to work better,” read the statement.
Shruti, according to her spokesperson, added in elements from her own closet to help Gautami and team to really make the looks pop given that she has lived in LA herself and is someone with a very distinctive sense of style.
Commenting on Shruti’s relationship with Gautami, an industry source said: “Shruti and Gautami have always shared a good equation. Shruti and her dad share a very lovely and open relationship thanks to which Shruti has been very welcoming of Gautami into their little family. Gautami was present in Chennai for Shruti’s birthday bash as well and their comfortable chemistry was there for all to see.”
