Love and jewels have always formed a close combination and this has been amply demonstrated by director Amol Palekar in his forthcoming Paheli , based on the Rajasthani folk story 'Duvidha' by Vijaydan Detha.

Though films made by him are becoming few and far between, Palekar manages to touch human emotions whenever he goes behind the camera.

But his latest film also has a mysterious glitter to it: mysterious because of the name and glitter both because it is a production by star Shah Rukh Khan and uses jewellery by Tanishq.

As his wont, the filmmaker has shown concern for the role of woman in society, her right to choose, and how male-dominated society deals with the marginalised.

The story relates to Rajasthani Royal households and a woman's dreams of love. A total of 300 designs had been drawn up for the film to give it an authentic look. The vibrancy of Rajasthani Kundan and inlay work has been captured in the jewellery exclusively created for the film.

A six-time Filmfare and three-time National Award winner, Amol is confident that film could break his image of being the maker of art films and prove that he can create magic on the silver screen if called upon to do so. The film's starcast includes the mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan , SRK, Rani Mukherjee , Juhi Chawla and Sunil Shetty .

'We had gone to Shah Rukh only for the acting part, but he asked without the slightest hesitation whether he could produce the film,' Amol said in a press meet in New Delhi.

Elaborating the role of the jewellery, Tanishq Marketing Manager Aanchal Jain said, 'through the 'Paheli' collection, we have tried to bring alive the experience of an old and intricate form of Indian jewellery craftsmanship'.

Sandhya Gokhale, the scriptwriter of 'Paheli', who conducted extensive research before finishing her script, said 'It is exciting to see how the story of the film unfolds through the authentic ambience that we have painstakingly recreated'.

She added, 'the jewellery has effectively incorporated the many hues of the Rajasthani landscape and the costumes depicted in the film impeccably blend in the mood of the characters. The elaborate detailing on each piece of jewellery is evident in many of the scenes of 'Paheli'.

''The film is an ancient story of modern ideology as reflected in the jewellery and has been made keeping in mind the relevance of the present while depicting the past. Jewellery can be used to great effect to connote various meanings and can lead to multiple interpretations, which is what has been done in the film'', the filmmaker added in reply to a question.
