Rajesh Pratap Singh’s first collection of saris was presented at Ekaya recently–a contemporary bespoke label presenting the finest textiles from Benaras; this was in fact the outcome of years he spent developing and researching handloom techniques. The collection comprised of ikat weaves in strong geometric motifs, a recurrent theme from the brand; ajrak prints, which have been given a new twist and cotton silk chanderis.
It’s quite fascinating to watch you as Katniss, she is complex & emotional; how much you approach her & how much do you feel you have taken propriety of her in the film?
Katniss kind of grew along with this character; it’s an interesting thing to play the same character throughout the year and that feeling is constantly growing and changing along with you. I mean we are very different, but I take it from the books, obviously.
