Tanvi Azmi says NO to designer sarees for her upcoming show, ‘Vani Rani’!
Find out why?
Tanvi Azmi has returned to television after a gap of 10 years with &TV’s family drama Vani Rani. The show is about twin sisters who are married to two half-brothers and live under the same roof.
As per the story, inspite the fact that they are twins, there is nothing common between them. Vani is a strong-minded career woman while Rani is a demure housewife.
Being a perfectionist, Tanvi wants the characters to be as close to reality as possible and hence while most television actors have stylists and flaunt designer labels, Tanvi is going against the tide for the portrayal of Vani and Rani.
A source from the set reveals, “The sarees which she dons for both the characters are not from any designer. She likes to keep it simple and real and therefore the costume designer has sourced the sarees from local shops in Mumbai. Infact, her sarees as Rani are so simple that they are bought at a minimal cost.”
It is not very often that we see an actor letting go an opportunity to wear designer labels but when it comes to someone like Tanvi, the character is the only thing which is important.
