Bollywood movies and South Indian sarees

South Indian sarees in the fashion world? Don’t understand? Have you not seen the Bollywood movies these days? In most of them the divas either take a south Indian get up or the entire movie background is south Indian.

Even these days the B-town divas attend the parties in south Indian traditional sarees like Kanjeevaram, mysore silk, thanjore, ilkal, etc. be it Vidya Balan, Sridevi, Sonali Bendre or any other actress.

These sarees are heavy, glamorous, elegant in patterns, covered with zari, and rich in texture and tradition. These 9 yards are now hugely popular and can be worn in every special occasion even in weddings as wedding attires.
