Nia Sharma, who plays the lead in the fantasy-thriller-romance ‘Suhagan Chudail’, has opened up about her custom-created striking red ensemble, which is the result of numerous fittings and experiments to achieve the perfect blend of seductive and sinister.

Set to become the signature look of the chudail, Nia’s exquisite red creation boasts elaborate stonework and delicate embroidery. Talking about the outfit, Nia shared: “Deciding what my character Nishigandha should look like in ‘Suhagan Chudail’ was a really exciting creative process for me as an actor and someone who loves fashion. From the very beginning, when I first read the script, I knew this role needed a truly special and unique look.”

The show’s stylist, Annuradha Khuranna, handcrafted Nia’s red ensemble entirely — from the ornate blouse and lehenga to the statement jewellery pieces. “There’s just something so special about wearing an outfit that a designer has made completely by hand from start to finish. I must say, my amazing stylist Annuradha perfectly understood the vision I had in mind and used her talents to handcraft this stunning red ensemble for Nishigandha,” she shared.

Nia worked with Khuranna, trying on various looks before finally settling on the red aesthetic. To ensure sartorial perfection, even the jewellery pieces adorning Nia were painstakingly handmade rather than sourced from existing collections. Nia added: “We tried out many different colours, styles, and textures before deciding on this beautifully hand-embroidered masterpiece. The phenomenal response to my look from fans has made all the effort worth it.”

Sharma then signed Zee TV’s Jamai Raja portraying the role of Roshni Patel opposite Ravi Dubey, produced by Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, which she was a part of from 2014 until she quit the show in 2016.

In 2017, she marked her debut on digital platform with Vikram Bhatt’s web series Twisted, an erotic thriller where she co-starred with Rrahul Sudhir and Namit Khanna as Aliyah Mukherjee, a supermodel. In July 2017, Sharma participated in eighth season of Colors TV’s popular stunt-based reality show Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi hosted by Rohit Shetty.

She was eliminated from the show two times, before re-entering again, and survived until the show ended, emerging as the first finalist.

Sharma next reprised her character in the second and third season of Twisted In July 2018 she found her next character in Colors TV’s suspense thriller series Ishq Mein Marjawan, in which she had the double role of Aarohi Kashyap and Anjali Sharma opposite Arjun Bijlani until the show ended in June 2019, which had a successful run of 2 years.
