I meant to spend more time showcasing sarees from the movie Rang Rasiya.
The costumes were designed by Niharika Khan and I thought she did an exceptional job of recreating period costumes.
Above two sarees are a perfect examples where she tried to recreate not just the colors but the fabrics and texture of the paintings of Raja Ravi Verma.
His original paintings sell for millions and even the copies of his paintings demand a pretty penny. If the art market hadn’t frozen because of the financial crisis, we would have seen his work reach stratospheric prices.
