New Delhi: Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif is grabbing a lot of attention these days.
While earlier it was because of her break-up with Ranbir Kapoor, now the actress is making to the headlines because of her forthcoming movie ‘Fitoor'.
Helmed by Abhishek Kapoor, ‘Fitoor' also stars Aditya Roy Kapur and Tabu and is an adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel ‘Great Expectations'.
Everything about the movie is catching eye-balls, be it the sizzling chemistry between Katrina and Aditya, Tabu's royal look, the songs or the locations.
But what's creating the recent buzz is Katrina's red hair in the movie which is taking the tinselvile by a storm.
If the gossip mills are to be believed, the producers of ‘Fitoor' has shell out a whopping amount of Rs 55 lakhs to get that look for Katrina Kaif.
According to the media reports, the team was not getting the desired colour tone for Katrina's hair, so they decided to bring in a hair colour expert to work on her hair. In fact, Katrina even had to fly to London every month to get the colour correction done as well.
While the buzz is hard to digest, hair-stylist Sapna Bhavnani is completely shocked with the news.
Sapna took to social networking site Facebook to express her shock and anger and ended up lashing out at Katrina and the ‘Fitoor' team as she called them ‘racist'.
She wrote, “The white people left but we are still smitten by them. Any Indian stylist could've done this job (maybe even better or suggested her not to do it cuz it doesn't suit her) but that's not the point,The point is which Producer would've paid an Indian Stylist 55 lakh to do the job?? Lol, I don't think I even need to answer that. I love our Indian Hair Industry and salute every stylist working their ass off and want them to know we are worth more! This racism is evident in every field be it modelling, cinematography, directing, hair/makeup, wardrobe, etc Etc ... This has to change. First, a woman, then an Indian.. Two whammies against equal pay is just ridiculous. #katrinaKaif.”
Now that was quite a hard dig over the ‘Fitoor' team.
On the other hand, Katrina was recently reported stating that it was director Abhishek who insisted she get her hair coloured red as it is the hue of chinar leaves, an important imagery in the film.
“Abhishek was excited about the hair colour. He was insistent. It is also similar to the colour of the chinar leaves. Red is also the colour of passion and love,” Katrina said.
We wonder how Katrina or the ‘Fitoor' team will react to Sapna Bhavnani's comment.
