Anyone who has watched Main Hoon Na will remember fawning over at Sushmita Sen’s stunning chiffon sarees and modern looking blouses by Manish Malhotra. She is one of the few actresses who made sarees look hot and insanely attractive. And at the lake Fashion Week 2018, where she walked the ramp in a Kanjeevaram saree cum jumpsuit, she expressed her love for sarees. She said that the first time she wore a saree was when she was 16. It was for a portfolio shoot with a famous photographer in Delhi, Harbans Mody.

Sushmita’s mother had dressed her up in a black silk saree that was not too heavy and just grand enough. She said that Harbans Mody was very surprised to see a sixteen-year-old in a saree, but her mother admitted that Sushmita had only been allowed to shoot because she promised to wear a saree!

She also spoke about how Sarees are so innately Indian and how much she loves them. She loves not just the chiffons she wears in moves, but also traditional sarees as well. She loves how sarees can drape a woman’s body but still leave a hint of suggestion. She said that a girl becomes a woman when she learns to drape a saree as it involves grace and “Adah.”

Clearly, her love affair with sarees is nowhere over as she often poses in them on her Instagram!
