So if you are a Dr. Who fan, how do you show it? You wear the phone booth, I mean, the Tardis saree!!!
OK, it is an interesting saree – shows Masaba influence. An interesting look for sure.
How many Dr. Who fans in the audience here? I used to watch it a while ago (Dr Number 4 – because you never forget your first doctor) and then lost touch. Last year, I watched the move and a part of the show, and loved it all over again.

Saw an ad for something called a NutriSari… I was puzzled. What is that? An edible saree?
I mean I have heard of edible underwear, but edible saree? That would be like a whole meal, right and can even feed a family of six…
Out of all the material one has considered, edible fruit leather has not been one of them! It is a cool idea; you go to one of these long weddings, you get hungry, and you can eat a bite!!
What do you think?!

Saeed Jaffrey, the cigarette shop owner Lallan Miyan had a customer Siddharth aka Farooq Shaikh, who unluckily couldn’t smoke. And thus, on the sets of the 1981 comedy Chashme Buddoor, director Sai Paranjpe had to take it on herself to teach her hero how to puff his way into the scene. Captured by ace lensman Jagdish Aurangabadkar, this picture shows how Sai was a hands-on filmmaker. In India, where women smokers are still looked down upon, Sai had no qualms teaching her male lead actor Farooq how to smoke. As the two actors stare at their director, Sai lights up with a coir rope hanging from the cigarette shop. And those were the days when Coke had still not made its second entry into the subcontinent. So there was the celebrated replacement Cola – Campa! And there was Ship matches. And of course, there was the absence of designer wardrobe, director’s hats, and too many assistants. There was a saree-clad filmmaker who took the reins of her project and led it forward. And that, as we call it, makes history! “

I feel for you, but sweetie your attire is better suited for a circus than an award show. Right from the saree which is far too much transparent to the blouse that looks like a disco ball. You might as well be hanging upside down and spinning from a disco ceiling.
The inappropriately large design on the shoulder strap of the blouse that looks like a Diwali firecracker, purple pallu that is barely visible, earrings that too large….OK why bother!
