A shoot with the ever Gorgeous & Stunning Shilpa Shetty Kundra
It was an excitement filled day since we were going to focus all our cameras on one of the Bollywood's Yummy Mummy Shilpa Shetty Kundra for her home brand SSK Sarees promo shoot. It was an ad ward for the virtual shopping hub Home Shop 18 at Future Studio, Goregoan East.
Albeit being primarily an Video shoot, we had all our guns blazing (Read: Camera & Lights & Other Equipments)for the print. The moment Shilpa walked in, what was a moment ago a rush, high pitched, anxiety filled chaos turned into a still water reflection where everyone was mesmerized by her diva like poise and the pristine saree she wore.
Overall I had the delight to capture Shilpa in four different looks where every outfit made its own mark. Each time when Shilpa entered the studio in a new saree she brought the otherwise bustling set to standstill and out of those moments my favorite one was when I captured her while she was lighting the 'Diya'.
Though print was given a very limited amount of time but in those blink of an eye moments we were able to create great images. And I personally liked Shilpa for the sweet woman she is, as she gave me all the right expressions and poses that I asked for without breaking a sweat or losing her cool.
Makeup was done by Ajay Shelar, who is a very dear friend of mine and undoubtedly he did a fabulous job. Throughout the shoot Shilpa was in a jolly mood, as she kept making fun of the heavy urdu words in the dialogues and how each fold of the saree is specifically placed.
My team was also deployed for capturing the best behind the scene moments, here is a glimpse of it.
Overall it was a long day shoot but it seemed like we had lost track of time and we enjoyed the whole process all along.
