Costume designer Chhavi speaks about Prabhu Deva's styling in Bagheera

Prabhu Deva will next be seen in director Adhik Ravichandran's upcoming film Bagheera. Recently, the film's teaser released and became a talking point among the audience. Chhavi Thakur has worked as a costume designer to Prabhu Deva for seven years. In a statement, she spoke about styling Prabhu Deva in Bagheera, in which he sports nearly 10 different looks. She said, "I thank director Adhik for giving me more space to experiment with innovative ideas. Prabhu Deva appears in 10 different shades, and they are chalk and cheese to each other. So, every character had to look unique. Finally, to see the heart-warming response has made me feel elated. Working with Prabhu Deva has always been a delight, though the process encapsulates lots of challenges.”

She further added that she styled in films such as Devi, Yung Mung Sung, Charlie Chaplin 2 and others. She said, "Of course, these movies had their challenges, especially Yung Mung Sung, as the story happens in a retro period, and it involved more research on martial artists’ costumes in China during a particular period. Apart from Prabhu Deva, I had to style up RJ Balaji and Ashwin as well. I had thoroughly enjoyed the entire process indeed.”
