In Babita Malkani

Comment image 33


It was a Babita Malkani sari for Pranutan while at a soirée earlier this evening. Didn’t care for the blouse and drape on Tara, don’t care for it on Pranutan. We are no prudes to be running scared of décolletés but, some things work and some things don’t. And this definitely doesn’t.

  1. I am totally confused
    So if a woman wears complete clothing /covers her body then she is a prude?
    Hmm…

    If that’s the case then all men are prudes….Cuz
    Celebrity or not ….I never see exposed man

  2. Actually, this is really one of those where I think Pranutan’s décolleté works. What doesnt work is that makeup, or maybe it was the flash lighting because everyone suffered this horrendous fate with their makeup.

    I think for that saree and its print, the blouse works really well. Her drape and blouse do not make me cringe “vulgur”..it’s very desensitized, which is how it should be.

    Not to mention she is out and about with Mom and Dad. So it definitely passes the test.

  3. This awesome top has no place paired with a sadee, or at a wedding reception. Pranutan has a great rack, and is clearly not afraid to show it (or of Dadi rolling over in her grave).

  4. That smile! On others, the blouse may look vulgar but her smile is saving it from going into that direction. No pouting n sensuous posing is making the whole look sweet yet hot.

  5. Nothing is working here. Nor the sari neither the blouse. It’s too casual for a reception. And obviously that tiny blouse! One can not wear this anywhere.

    Bad styling with bad outfit.

  6. This trend needs to de a painful death…what is this wearing bra with saree and then keeping the entire chest uncovered with the drape…nobody’s a prude here but there’s something called aesthetics. And she came to the party with her parents…cringe, cringe! Famous people really have different sensibilities than us.

  7. Why oh why??? I loved her simplicity in her debut film… thought she was different … maybe coz of the elegant and graceful legacy she comes with.

    She is such a pretty young gal, why is she being a follower … she would have looked so gorgeous if this sari was worn with a normal blouse …. would have elevated her personality.

    Right now, she’s just one of them in the crowd…. almost like someone told her ‘ do what that girl tara did… you’ll be in the news’ and she followed …. smh!!!!

  8. imagine wearing this to a barjatya-rajshri wedding of all places, lots of these south bombay film types are so disconnected from reality

  9. When my work takes me to the remotest of Indian countryside…I have seen tradition in it’s purest form..backless cholis with mirror work and low ghaghras…tribals with blouse-less drapes or just beads or tattoos covering them…they have a raw sultry appeal which is provoking yet innocent at the same time. So the argument that the Indian attire is conservative somehow doesn’t hold ground.

    But this, oh dear ….isn’t just an insult to the tradition…it’s an assault on the senses and I don’t think it’s stopping anytime soon.sigh!

    • I agree with you. But that’s something they grow up with. That’s the way they are. This looks forced and a curated attempt to attract attention.

    • Completely true. The pseudo feminists on HHC and in Hindi industry who keep on giving feminist lectures don’t know that. Very limited their scope is.

  12. Considering the occasion..this attire was totally inappropriate. She shouldn’t use other’s moment for showcasing her figure or her boldness. This look should be limited to magazine cover.

  13. though i do feel sorry for the plight of saree these days at the hands of the rich and the famous i wouldn’t be too harsh on this young lady, i think she wanted a change of image, her mom ekta was very bold unlike her famous grandmother

  14. I’m not of the school of thought that a woman invites rape when dressed scantily or boldly, as per Bollywood, but I am curious as to why it’s always the women baring their chests? Why don’t men dress boldly and show off their balls? Why the double standards? Why should women be paraded like a piece of meat when men continue to be judged by their intellect, success, power?

    It’s not about prudeness. It’s just … un-feminist. On one hand, we want to be recognized for our brains, and on the other hand, we come out with our tits on display. For what? Would that serve any purpose in getting us valued for who we are? If anything, it works to the contrary.

    Yes, dress as you want. But, here, she is clearly not dressed as she may want to. It’s a wedding reception that she is attending with her parents. She is obviously dressed as she is expected to – in today’s Bollywood – to get the attention she needs for her career prospects. And that’s a massive failure for the cause of feminism.

  15. I think she has a charming face and frankly nobody would care about the cleavage but paired with that ugly drape of a saree, it only screams wannabeish.

  16. Its not good feeling for me to see the bollywood ladies really putting themselves under the name of anti-objectification of sex symbols, feminism, freedom to be anything , is it really how and what freedom looks likes ?Just to step out always oozing the “i have body to be bare ” vibes ? is this all in name of fashion ? There is difference between reel and real life, unfortunately these ladies fail to understand . Its a saree which is known for its magical drape and make every woman look like a queen , its really sad that just to be called bollywood fashion ( we are ahead of fashion ) you can go bare when you are supposed to wear the magical drape ! Wear gown or western dress coz it can be stayled this way, not the saree or suit which has charismatic magic of its duppatta and drape.

  17. Also the blouse and styling took away the attention from the saree totally which is a loss for the designer. So what was the point of the stylist? The only reason which comes to mind is that Pranutan wanted to change her image but why choose this platform? It is wrong in so many ways.
