Manish Malhotra who is a costume designer and has his own label is a prominent name in the industry. As he completes 30 years in the industry, he shares a candid chat with Pinkvilla and talks about his journey. He has been responsible for quite a lot of iconic looks in Bollywood movies. From Kajol’s transformation from a tomboy to a woman in chiffon sarees in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Poo’s ecstatic wardrobe in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham to even the popular Salwar-Tshirt combo in Jab We Met, Manish talks about what the looks got inspired from and how they got to selecting them! 

Adding to it, he also spills the beans on how stars in the industry were treated then and how things have drastically changed now. ‘Hey, what’s up?’ has become a casual way of greeting a celebrity now which was literally not the case then. Bollywood has become much friendlier now! He says, “I’ve had Rekhaji and Ananya Panday in the same room for fittings and Ananya told me, ‘This could only happen in your house, Manish!’”

Moving on, he also delves into working with directors and their vision while also spilling the beans about working with Karan Johar. The Mughal era-inspired period drama, Takht is what he’s looking forward for the future and is already preparing for it.
