Rohini Kapur in Mumbai

Rediff reader and blogger Rohini Kapur talks to the people behind the fresh and snazzy look of Zoya Akhtar's latest offering Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin -- the cast of the film have been rocking the promos and we're enjoying what we see (fashion-wise) -- from Farhan's hats, Kalki's sleek bangs, to Katrina's free-spirited vibe.

Curious about the five looks, we spoke to the styling team of ZNMD for a better perspective on the characters and how their traits translate into their screen persona. Arjun Bhasin, the costume designer for ZNMD explained the fashion looks while Osh Bhabani, Avan Contractor and Walter Dorairaj (the b:blunt stylists), told us the story behind the hair styles.

Here's what the experts tell us:

Hrithik Roshan as Arjun

Fashion
: Hrithik (as Arjun) is a chic London investment banker who's bit of a control freak so his clothes are tailored, controlled, crisp and perfect.

Hair: Arjun's character starts off almost straitjacketed. He's a perfectionist which reflects in his style, though he becomes more relaxed after he meets Laila (Katrina). His hair style goes from smooth and and sophisticated to casual.

Fashion: Katrina Kaif as Laila is a bohemian traveller and an island girl. She buys beautiful clothes everywhere and mixes them up. She's not a designer girl she more casual and sexy, and has a got a "Kate Moss" vibe.

Hair: Laila is a free spirit  and "live in the moment" kind of girl. Since she has born and brought up abroad, she is very modern and boho, which translates into her hair style through beautiful movement, textured feel and the longish length.

Fashion: Imraan's a bohemian, eclectic, romantic poet. So he's bit of a hippy  and that reflects in his wardrobe -- so he wears a kurta from a local market with designer sunglasses.

Hair: Imraan is effortless, fresh and lively, so the hair style is boho-inspired and has got a boyish feel. We've played with Farhan's natural movement and texture, going from wavy to curly.
