'The sheer scale of Pakeezah was tremendous'
Who are the people our stars admire? Which film sequences that inspire them? These are the questions we attempt to answer in The List as Bollywood icons talk about their desi as well as international favourites.
In today's issue, art director
In today's issue, art directorSharmishta Roy lists her top five sets:
Pakeezah: The sheer scale on which the sets were mounted was tremendous. Also, the glamour attached to the film made it look larger than life.
Mashaal: The set constructed for the basti (slums) was so authentic that not once one would feel it's only a set. Every minute detail was taken care of; it's one of the most realistic sets I've seen.
Utsaav: The entire atmosphere of that particular era in which the film was set was recreated. One actually felt transported back to that era. Also, the canvas on which the sets were mounted was really large.
Dil To Pagal Hai: If I am asked to select one of my own films, I would pick DTPH. The audience had never seen something like this before. The sets were totally innovative. And the credit for that goes to the entire team. I think we conceptualised it well and the results were for all to see.
