Shazahn Padamsee’s next inspired by Zeenat Aman!
Actress Shazahn Padamsee, who hit the jackpot at the box office earlier this year with Housefull 2 is now all set to turn a hippie for her next film. And the actress who had earlier played the role of a cute and bubbly girl-next-door in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji followed by her sexy avatar in the Sajid Khan film, is now excited about her new role as a hippie in Disco Valley. And a source reveals that Shazahn’s styling in the film has been inspired by yesteryear’s Bollywood siren Zeenat Aman’s hippie look from the hit Hare Rama Hare Krishna. “Shazahn’s look has been designed keeping in mind the balance between ’70s and today’s era, but the main inspiration is Zeenat,” says the source.
Talking about her look in the film Shazahn says, “I have always admired Zeenatji’s styling in her films, and wanted to adapt her look. So when Siddhartha Jain (producer) came to me with this role, I signed it without a second thought. Now I can only hope to justify the character.”
Meanwhile, the actress who is said to be very excited about her role, is also going to great lengths to get the right body shape for the film too. “Although Shazahn has one of the fittest bodies in showbiz, she is making sure that she looks her toned best in the film and so has been taking extra care of her diet and work-out regime,” says an insider.
