Thalapathy Vijay and Chiyaan Vikram are two of the biggest stars in the Tamil industry, who are known for their massy blockbusters. Both the actors do experiment with their roles and nail it with ease and finesse. Mumbai based costume designer, Komal Shahani, who has worked with both the actors said that these two can pull off any look with ease. Talking about her journey, she told ET, “I made my debut with 180. I had styled an advertisement here and that’s how I met ARM sir. He’d asked if I would work for a film he was directing, and that’s how I got an opportunity to work in Thuppakki. Since then I have worked in several films for ARM and Vijay sir.” Also Read – Week That Was South: Nithiin prepones his marriage with Shalini, Vijay Sethupathi reveals about his role in Master

Komal, who has collaborated with Vijay for films Theri, Mersal, Bigil and others, said, “Despite his stardom, Vijay sir is so simple, humble and is always ready to try new things. He is always willing to experiment and gives me a free hand when it comes to exploring costumes. He trusts my opinion and my styling. He has never been the kind of person, who is unreasonable or hell-bent about looks, costumes etc. He knows about all the current trends. I ensure I style keeping the trends in mind. It is wonderful to be associated with someone, who is level-headed and fun. His dedication and concern to everyone on the set amazes me.” Also Read – Karthik Subbaraj gets candid on his film with Chiyaan and Dhruv Vikram, says, ‘It all happened all of a sudden’

Talking about her experience of styling Vijay, she said, “My costume styling depends on the character. We work on a photoshoot, colour palette and then decide on the look. For Thuppakki, we gave colours that he wasn’t seen in – like Olive Green, Navy Blue. We also styled him differently like making him wear tee shirts inside a shirt etc. I ensure the actor is comfortable. When you are acting, these things shouldn’t bother you.” She further added, “I think his fans really like his look in Jilla. I got a lot of appreciation from them. The rolled up puffed sleeves made quite a style statement,” she says and adds, “In Theri, he was a stylish cop. For Mersal, I designed the doctor’s and magician’s looks. For Bigil, it was a lot more fun. We designed the football tee from scratch. For Rayappan’s look, we gave something that he hasn’t done before. We did so many photoshoots and trials and eventually attained the look. Atlee sir and GK Vishnu had a huge part in this. It is all team work.” Also Read – Chiyaan Vikram to team up with Viswasam and Annaatthe director Siruthai Siva for his next?

When asked about her experience on working with Vikram, she said, “Vikram sir is chilled out and fun. He transforms into every look we give. Both Vijay sir and Vikram sir can pull off any look with ease. They have an effortless style and their eye for detail is commendable.” She added, “I’ve known Ajay since Thuppakki days. He was assisting Murugadoss sir at that time. We share a nice rapport and I have seen his growth since then. “The team had revealed seven looks, but the film has more looks. It was a treat to work with Ajay and his team. I can’t talk about the looks right now, but we did a lot of research.”
