After Deepika Padukone, who is sporting a 20 kg armour for her upcoming film 'Bajirao Mastani', adult star turned actress Sunny Leone will be seen at her ethnic best as she sports a lehenga weighing 12 kgs for her song Mere Sayiaan Super Star from her upcoming movie 'Ek Paheli-Leela'.
Though Sunny looks at ease while she is dancing wearing the golden lehenga, which is embellished with rich embroidery, very few know that the lehenga she sports in the song weighed almost 12kgs. Given the background Sunny has come from, it is a tad surprising to see Leone carry of the heavy lehenga with much finesse.
What we hear is that the actress paid heavy price for opulence whilst performing intricate steps in a super heavy costume.
A source close to the film says, "Sunny’s main concern was to carry herself with ease in that heavy, ethnic wardrobe. The shoot went on for 3 days and Sunny even found it difficult to sit properly and as a result whenever she wore the lehenga for the shoot, she would not be sitting at all. Sunny managed to carry it and performed all her steps gracefully. But the steps were becoming more complex and therefore Choreographer turned Producer Ahmed Khan decided to get another lehenga made and requested Rohit Verma to make a replica of the same golden lehenga weighing little lighter.
We hear the lehenga was made within 24 hours with more than 10 people working on it and was ready in the nick of time!
Directed by Bobby Khan and produced by T-Series, 'Ek Paheli Leela' is all set to release on Apri 10, 2015 and also stars Jay Bhanushali, Rajneish Duggal, Rahul Dev, Jassi Randhawa and Mohit Ahlawat.
