The shoot is conceptualized by Nikhil with a theme of an Untamed Bride’ – an extension of his last collection and Sushmita Sen seemed to make an ideal fit. Her strong, bold, modern, rebellious, individualistic streak made her the perfect choice for such a concept.


Says Nikhil in an excerpt from the magazine interview, “She was an absolute delight to work with – so warm, encouraging and her vivacious energy is infectious. In fact, I was intimidated sharing the limelight with her but she made me feel completely at ease and would just light up as soon as the cameras started clicking. My singular thought in dressing her was for Sushmita Sen, the glamazon to over shadow Sushmita Sen, the actor and I think she did exactly that!”
