Sometimes it’s piece of cake, sometimes it requires a lot of work like extensive research on the concept. Either way, it’s fun. As it gets challenging and hence more fun.”

If the actor’s suggestions are way off from the requirement of the character they are rejected by the team altogether. That will be from me, my creative directors and even my producers and channels. But as long as the costume is comfortable for the actors they usually do not get involved. All my actors have been fabulous to me.”
