ALTBalaji’s Hai Taubba 3 actor Ekavali Khanna takes inspiration from Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat!
Veere Di Wedding actress Ekavali Khanna is currently enjoying the love and adulation she received from the masses for her performance in ALTBalaji’s recent hit Hai Taubba 3. The anthology which is all about strong women breaking the shackles of society, saw Khanna playing one of the unassailable women. Interestingly, Ekavali went a step ahead for ALTBalaji’s Hai Taubba. Ekavali ditched her vanity for the show, a bold step for any female actress in the industry. Like Deepika Padukone refrained from working on her eyebrows in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical drama Padmaavat, Ekavali did the same.
Talking about the riveting anecdote, Ekavali shared, “An interesting aspect of Sarla’s character was the way I was styled and my look was created. I don’t know if people will notice but I have not done my eyebrows in the series. Because at that point in time, people were not threading their eyebrows. So it was just a little effort that I made to get into that character’s headspace. I also went to wear a saree without a blouse. That was something I was not comfortable with. However, women used to wear sarees like that. So we had to stay true to the era and time. To make myself comfortable, I wore sarees without a blouse at my place. I walked into my house in my cotton sarees without a blouse to get comfortable. It was something that I think the costume and the makeup department really put their best self forward. It helped me completely break out of my own mould and embrace Sarla’s look and feel her.”
On a parting note, Ekavali said, “That is what makes this whole experience very gratifying. Hai Taubba was something that I did step out of my comfort zone and it is being acknowledged; it is being accepted.”
Hai Taubba 3, is the third chapter in the popular franchise that exclusively streams on ALTBalaji. The series is currently streaming on ALTBalaji. Binge-watch the four episodes right away.
