Nanjiani revealed to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that he turned to his mother Shabana to find a Pakistani designer to help him with his red carpet look.

‘I wanted to wear a Sherwani because 1. They look awesome and 2. My costume in the film always reminded me of Sherwanis,’ Nanjiani began.

‘And I wanted to use a designer in Pakistan, not just a Pakistani designer in the U.S. So I called my mom, she gave me names of three amazing designers in Pakistan,’ he added.

The actor’s stylist Jennie Yang connected with Karachi, Pakistan-based House of Umar Sayeed, and sent him pictures of Nanjiani’s costume in Eternals.

‘I wanted the colors to be similar to my costume colors, and purple and gold are a beautiful combination. The paisley pattern is very traditional as well,’ Nanjiani said.

Stylist Yang added, ‘They hand-beaded this beautiful paisley pattern in the front and they did this beautiful pattern on the back with gold thread. They made it to his exact measurements. We only had to do a few minor adjustments.’
