For those who have seen the ongoing show ‘Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo’ have definitely got great things to be spoken about the show, thanks to its content and the performances. One such performer in the show is Isha Talwar, who has been getting rave reviews for her acting in the show, which is being streamed on Disney Plus Hotstar.

Isha Talwar, who plays the role of Bijilee (Badi Bahu) revealed that her prime reference for getting the look right was the 1993 classic movie Rudaali. which had Dimple Kapadia in the lead. Not only was the look in the show her reference but also motivated to recreate the exact look of Dimple Kapadia for a shoot she did. For Isha, it was an honour to be adapting Dimple's look while she shared the screen space with the veteran actress herself.

Speaking about the same, Isha Talwar said, “The story is based in Rajasthan and so my character, Badi Bahu, has a particular kind of dressing. To get the look right, my prime source of reference is Dimple ma’am’s look in ‘Rudaali’. Post the show of the show, I wanted to recreate the exact look that Dimple Ma’am had in the show. I rewatched ‘Rudaali’ for my research and then I am sharing screen space with the legend herself. It was not just an honour but also overwhelming and, of course, I was equally startled at the same time.”

For the unversed, the series of ‘Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo’, in a nutshell, all about a crime drama that revolves around the ‘Rani Cooperative’, which happens to be a cocaine-making factory that pretends to make handicrafts and herbs.
