New Delhi, June 11 (IANS) Actress Vidya Balan’s love for the sari is no secret, but it’s a red Banarasi gifted by her husband Siddharth Roy Kapur that she considers to be one of her prized possessions.
“I have a collection of cotton saris which I picked up from different parts of the country in hues of orange, pink, brown and red. My other prized possessions include a green and pink Kanjeevaram sari gifted by my parents and a red Banarasi sari which Siddharth gifted me,” Vidya said in a statement.
She fell in love with the six-yard wonder when she was just three years old.
“My family album has pictures of me dressed up in my mother’s saris. If I could take one thing from my mother’s wardrobe, it would be her old Kanjeevarams,” said the face of World Ethnic Day, to be celebrated globally by online ethnic products marketplace Craftsvilla.com on June 19.
On the work front, she is awaiting the release of “Hamari Adhuri Kahani”.
