Gorgeous Mandira Bedi sashayed the ramp for Satya Paul's 'Resham and Zari' collection showcased on Day-4 of the Kolkata Fashion Week (KFW) II. The actor chats up after the show.
This is the first time you walked the ramp in Kolkata? Yes. I was actually very excited over my ramp walk here. Kolkata is my birthplace and to walk the ramp in a Satya Paul saree in Kolkata is all that I could ask for.
You have walked for Satya Paul earlier as well... Yes. My friendship with Satya Paul goes back 5-6 years now. I have walked for him in Dubai, Delhi and now in Kolkata. But this time I was asked not to smile while cat walking. So I gave a serious, yet sensuous look.
What is there in a Satya Paul saree that appeals to you the most? Satya Paul makes sarees the way no one in India can make...he is the best at it. They are treated differently and also the blouses are really unique.I myself own umpteenth number of Satya Paul sarees. Most sarees I wear during cricket commentaries are from the Satya Paul wardrobe. What better endorsement can it be that I weat his sarees on and off camera most of the times.
Are you picking anything from his 'Reshan and Zari' collection? Actually most of it (smiles).
What do you love wearing in a day-to-day basis? Sarees are my favourite garment. I love salwar kameez as well.
