Mumbai, Feb 2: Bhavna Jasra is an artist who gets hands and feet impressed onto gold, and a lot of celebrities have taken her services.
At Jasra’s First Impressions n Creative Captures Photo Exhibition held at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital here, actress Shilpa Shetty shared how she has created everlasting memories through her art.
“What she (Bhavna) does is a unique idea, first impressions. You can make gifts of them. I had got my guruji’s hands and feet impressed on gold and presented them to him,” the 37-year-old said here Friday at the exhibition.
“I also got my parents, my in-laws’ hands impressed, and I have kept them at my home like a blessing. I also got Viaan’s (her son) impressions. These are memories that will stay with you for life,” she added.
The concept involves casting impressions of various expressions of hands and feet, making 3D models of them, making memorabilia for life.
Choreographer-director Farah Khan says Jasra’s work has also created lasting memories of her three kids.
“When my kids were born, Arjun Rampal and Mehr gifted me these. That time I felt what a stupid gift it is, but now the kids will soon turn five and I realise this is a gift that will last forever. Those small feet and hands will not come back, so it is a memory of that,” Farah said.
Bollywood celebrities like Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao, Sanjay Dutt and Manyata have used Bhavna’s services.
