Rani Mukerji, who came down to the capital to attend her close friend and designer Sabyasachi Mukerji’s show at the Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers India Couture Week (ICW), also got a chance to talk to him about the look while promoting her forthcoming Bollywood film Mardaani.


Though her look is far from being feminine, dainty or elegant in the film, the newly-wed wife of movie producer Aditya Chopra may sport some special creations by Sabyasachi during the film’s promotions. (Also read: Rani Mukerji to Attend Sabyasachi’s Show at India Couture Week)

“I was having a chat with him (Sabyasachi) about the clothes I want to wear for the promotion ofMardaani,” Rani said here in an interactive session post the designer’s spectacular show. 

Dressed in an ensemble from Sabyasachi’s new collection Ferozabad, which he showcased at ICW on Tuesday night, Rani exuded elegance in a cream sari embellished with intricate zari work and teamed with a black blouse. The glow on her face, accentuated with an ornate hairstyle and a well-placed red rose in her locks, added to the entire look. 

Sabyasachi happens to know Rani’s taste, and she’s a fan of his work. He is also the designer who created her special ensemble for her wedding, held in Italy in April. 

“It had to be Sabya,” she exclaimed. 

The actress was especially happy to be present for Sabyasachi’s latest couture showcase. 

“I can only say that I am very happy to have Sabya as my brother, my friend and my family. I’m lucky to know him and yes, he makes such beautiful clothes,” she said. (Also read: Aditya Chopra Has Not Finalised Next Project, Reveals Yash Raj Films)
