It’s been shades of green for Samantha at Daggubati-Bajaj post wedding festivities first in a Taanbaan sari and then in an emerald green Deep Thee suit. She looked lovely in both.

  1. Lovely! Loved how this family kept the whole theme subtle and laid back.. everyone wore handloom lenin kind of clothes for this puja.. For the people who were complaining how too simple Samantha dressed up for the wedding, I saw other group pictures of wedding where almost everyone including Upasana too dressed relatively simple.. Makes sense given the covid situation and simple wedding(per their standard)

    • True, A lot of telugu women, especially the seniors wear traditional weaves like uppada, venkatagiri, gadwal, mangalagiri etc for weddings which are cotton with zari or cotton-silk and hence will look simpler compared to a pure silk. This is true even for weddings in “normal” conditions, check out the sarees of Chiranjeevi’s wife, Amala, all the women in the Rana wedding etc wear.

  2. Major props to her for not showing up dressed like a bride to someone else’s wedding.

    Most Bollywood heroines either have no shame. Or they are plain stupid.

    • Daggubati family kept the whole wedding festivities dressing code simpler, given the pandemic. Most of the family and guests dressed simpler at this wedding and other festivities. At this puja all the Daggubati family and guests were wearing this khadi handloom clothes including Rana’s sister, where you can see her in cream saree in the 2nd pic.

  3. The linen is from Ponduru, a place in Andhra. It is also the only place in India where the khadi is handwoven using a charkha or handmade slivers for spinning. Happy to see they shined a spotlight on this dying craft. Not just Samantha, the entire family, including the men, sported this Ponduru Khadi.

  4. I am actually glad and thankful that the fashion blogs are bridging the gap between south and north.. Also for helping to break the stereotypical ill-representation of southern dressing in bollywood movies..
