Alia rewears wedding saree
Alia looked radiant in her white ivory saree featuring delicate golden embroidery from celebrated designer Sabyasachi. The actor tied her hair in a bun and chose a different set of jewellery for the event. She completed the look with kohl-rimmed eyes, nude lips, and a red bindi. She also wore white roses on her hair, a look that seemed to be inspired by her titular character in Gangubai Kathiawadi. As she accepted the award, Ranbir was seen capturing the special moment in his mobile.
Videos on X (formerly Twitter) went viral shortly after Alia’s look surfaced online. Reacting to her look, a fan wrote “She looks absolutely stunning.” A fan also said, “I like how she didn’t change anything with her saree kept it as it is.” Another wrote, “Fact that it was an important personal day then and it’s an very important day professionally today! Girl Going Good!” A comment read, “She is inspiring in so many ways. Breaking notions and redefining stuff is what makes her very very different.”
Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor tied the knot on April 14 at their Mumbai home last year. She looked stunning in the same ivory saree with golden details on her wedding day. She paired it with heavy kundan jewellery but kept her makeup simple. Earlier, she had told Vogue in an interview, “I love a saree. It’s the most comfortable garment in the world, which is why I wore one for my wedding and not a lehenga.”
