Zara Shahjahan’s newest collection – inspiration or imitation of ‘A Suitable Boy?’
As soon as the newest collection of Zara Shahjahan was posted on Instagram the audiences went gaga over it but people could not resist notice the eerie similarities between the latest Netflix series called ‘A suitable boy’ and Zara Shahjahan’s latest collection, ‘Ghazal.’
A Suitable boy is said to have been inspired by Vikram Seth’s novel with the same title but the pictures tell another story. The similarities we found among the photo-shoot and the show are impossible to miss and the internet cannot help but laugh over the ‘creativity’ the latest collection exhibits. Let’s see how much Zara Shahjahan got inspired by a suitable boy;
WALL PAINT, ARCHES AND LAMPS
The mint green walls inside the deewan khaana are similar to the walls in Saaeda Bai’s havelli. The lamps look identical too.
Even the outdoor walls have the same hint of pink and flowers in them
Mian mithu has also made an appearance on the shoot
Saeeda Bai’s Paandaan and Eman Suleiman’s click with paandaan is another evident similarity.
The unavoidable similarities in some photos are staggering, Ahad staring at sajal while holding the book is almost uncanny similarity to Tabu and Ishaan’s one.
Oh and how could we miss this one!
UNCANNY RESEMBLANCES AMONG MODELS
Dusky complexion with curly hair to the side with almost the same height and physique Ahad Raza Mir fulfils the mould of Ishaan Khattar amazingly.
Who better than Resham could have filled in for Tabu as a beautiful courtesan with dazzling eyes and luscious black curls!
Tanya Maniktala and Sajal Aly’s doe eyes are obvious too
The Zara Shahjahan’s team did not bother to put in effort to change the name too;
Tabu’s name in the series is Saeeda Bai and Resham is also referred in the shoot as Resham Bai.
Certainly there are similarities between the two and this photo-shoot raises question regarding the creativity of our fashion industry.
