Actress Neha Dhupia looks simple and classically elegant in a Slate gray sari with silver gray embroidery and silver sequins along the border. The ensemble is crying out for some matching jewelry though, like massive silver dangling earrings, a wide silver finger ring, a simple choker and maybe even a fancy silver armlet.
Some ridiculous made-up controversy about Neha and Mandira being upset at each other because they were both wearing similar sarees!
If these two sarees are similar then I think both Neha and Mandira are twins!
As the curtains came down on the four week-episode of the comedy show, Hasee Aur Haseena, the concluding episode saw some hostility between the judges Neha Dhupia and Mandira Bedi. Apparently Neha Dhupia was upset because she felt that her sari was strikingly similar to that of Mandira’s.
A source close to the unit said, “Neha Dhupia, Mandira Bedi and Tanushree Dutta are the judges of the four episode-comedy show, Hasee Aur Haseena. Both Mandira and Neha were given red saris, whereas Tanushree had to wear a yellow salwar kameez. When Neha realised that her and Mandira’s saris were similar, she refused to wear it and insisted on being given another sari. When the channel authorities refused, she walked out of the sets in a huff, shut herself in her vanity van and refused to shoot. The channel and the production team tried persuading Neha to wear the sari but Neha refused and offered the option of wearing a western outfit, which she had with her. However, the channel refused to budge and decided to go along with the concept of traditional wear, because the episode had to be aired on Diwali. After much coaxing Neha agreed to wear the sari but by then we had already lost over an hour. Things were really unpleasant throughout the shoot. Neha refused to communicate with Mandira and Tanushree.”
When we checked with Neha if it was true that she created a fuss over the costume, she said, “Mandira and I did wear something similar. But then it was Diwali time and people do end up looking similar. However, the clothes that we wore for the show were not provided by the channel or the production house. We wore our own clothes and had no problem with that. Mandira and I ended up joking about the fact that we were wearing similar saris.”
See, I told you, this is a completely made up story! They might have other issues, the sameness of the saree is not one of them!
Bollywood star Neha Dhupia is only pretending to wear a sari is here. And that too she is not trying too hard.
But that being said the sari blouse is quite interesting. The vintage Benarasi tissue fabric in magenta and pink is tailored into a sexy contemporary halter neck blouse. We have noted before that there is an upsurge in ensembles which combine classic elements with contemporary designs. This is one such example.
