The blue Benarasi silk sari is heavily embroidered and embellished with beads and stones. The sari is worn Bengali style, along with a long sleeve blouse that is embroidered along the neckline, and has heavy embroidery on the sleeves.

The jewelry is historically authentic, with five necklaces, two sets of anklets and many, many bangles and bracelets. Aishwarya is even wearing a triple ring on each on her middle fingers, and the typical ornate “chabi gucchho” – key ring on her pallu.
