ZEE5 Original romantic comedy film Shukranu is set in the 1970s and deals with the sensitive issue of forced sterilization drive carried out during the period of Emergency in India. Taking you back to that era, the looks of the lead actresses Shweta Prasad Basu essaying Reema (Inder’s wife) and Sheetal Thakur playing Akriti (Inder’s love interest) are inspired by the yesteryear’s fashion! The former’s look is notably interesting and in her words, “I was thrilled when I was told that my look will be similar to Sharmila Tagore’s look from the 70s in ‘Shukranu. I have grown up watching Sharmilaji”s films and I always admired her. Adorning the chiffon sarees, bouffant hairstyle and wing-eyed liner look was all very exciting,” Shweta said!

In this first look, Shweta wears a shimmery silk saree, maroon in colour, with a thick golden border. She is donning the bouffant hairdo with her tresses parted from the middle and tucked behind in a puff. Complimenting her look, are a pair of gold dangling earrings and an elegant maang tikka. A small red rose pinned in her hair, the winged eye-liner and the red lipstick.

Her pretty gold jhumkas cannot get unnoticed! By now, her looks are incomplete without the winged-eye liner and red rose!
