Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston says she had a gala time gorging on Indian food and donning a “beautiful” lehenga by Indian fashion designer Manish Malhotra for her upcoming film Murder Mystery 2.
Aniston, who enjoys a huge fan following in India courtesy her hit 1990s sitcom Friends, wore an ivory-coloured chikankari lehenga designed by Malhotra for an Indian wedding sequence in the Netflix movie. Renowned Hollywood costume designer Debra Mcguire had picked the ensemble for the actor.
Aniston, 54, described the dress, which took approximately three months to create, as a “beautiful” attire that was surprisingly heavy.
“It was a beautiful, beautiful dress,” the actor told PTI in a virtual roundtable interview.
Sandler, who was also part of the conversation, said Aniston “looked stunning” in the lehenga.
“Thank you, sweetheart,” she responded to her co-star’s praise.
“It was extremely heavy and I wasn’t expecting that. So much respect for all the beautiful women of India who have to not only wear it but dance their b**** off. We had a really good time,” she added.
The new Netflix movie is the sequel to 2019’s Murder Mystery, which followed married couple Nick and Audrey Spitz who get caught up in a murder investigation on a billionaire’s yacht.
Also starring Mark Strong, Melanie Laurent, Jodie Turner-Smith, John Kani, Kuhoo Verma, Enrique Arce, and Zurin Villanueva with Dany Boon, Murder Mystery 2 will stream on Netflix from March 31.
