It was an Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla sari for Ms. Bendre at the Zee Cine Awards, one that she wore with diamond and emerald jewellery by Neelam Kothari (yes, the actor from the 80s/90s).
Maximalism has made a comeback and while we are warming up to it (thanks to Gucci!), can’t say we feel the same way about this look on her. Sometimes you can throw in different design elements and they feel harmonious but most other times, it can just feel busy. That was the case here. I think the designers should have left out the feather detail and perhaps, the sari would’ve worked.
