This Shaadi Season Get “Sangeet Ready” in Madhuri Dixit’s Yesteryear Saree Collections

Trust me the Shaadi Season these days requires such massive planning. Not just for the bride and groom who are getting married but also for the guests. You have theme-based weddings where from food to the dress you wear also should be in sync and what the wedding event party decides. In this blog, I will make you feel special. I have my all-time favorite actress, Madhuri Dixit, and browsed through some of her classics last week and I came up with the idea to blog about the yesteryear saree she wore in her movies. 

This Shaadi Season you can go into a time warp and live in the 90s classic Bollywood moments with Madhuri. If you are stuck at planning for the Sangeet which wants you to be more colorful - here are some of my ideas to look different no matter what color is chosen for the theme. Here are some of the silk mark certified sarees.

“Sailaab’s” Green Kashtha

“Hum ko aajkaal hai, intezaar….koi aaye leke pyaar”  I know you have started humming already and to have that same Maharashtrian Koli style “Kashtha look is a classy style and you can drape your saree in a Nauvari style with our latest Dark Green katan banarasi saree collection which you can pair with a puffed sleeve yellow designer blouse. You can design the blouse of your choice with us at any time for 25 USD only.

“Didi Tera Dewar Deewana’s” Purple Saree

That’s classic Prem and Nisha’s story. The string struck on the mandolin played by Salman when he tried to woo Madhuri in the 90s iconic Bolly-hero style. Oh, how many whistles rolled out in the theater? You can seriously try that look with any one of our beauty in purple. Let me choose the one that is much closer to the drape Madhuri has worn. You can wear this katan banarasi saree in a seedha pallu style. You can try this style with our Influencer, Heena Gehlani in a recent satin silk saree collection which she tried with us.

“Dola Re’s” White and Red Saree

Bringing alive the greatest character of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s Chandrmukhi from Devdaas like never before. She has portrayed one of the best freestyle dramedy which not only left a mark in her acting career, but her collab with Pandit Birju Maharaj for this iconic movie is also a path-breaking adventure. However, the Dola Re, Dola Re dance was choreographed by Saroj Khan, and more than the dance, Bengalis started getting stereotyped with white-red saree and their classic aathpoure look.

The Black Beauty of “Kalaank”

The latest movie of Madhuri Dixit shows her maturity over time and classic appearance in such a molded characterization. The black color dress she wears as a courtesan while also being respected all over the town, these attributes give Madhuri's character a bit of an edge and her ethnic ensembles a lot of authority and control. 

“Dil Too Pagal Hai’s” Pinky Pink

This is something that you can style with anything close to pink, but also try the chiffon with a solid body with no other bead, resham, or zari work on it. A plain and solid saree on the wedding won't be great but you can pair it with a jeweled belt, a big kaan bali, and a zari embroidered jacket and you are sorted. But if you want to pull along just with the saree look you can do it easily with fresh flowers in your hair bun.

Try out any one of the look and feel classy - we have the most near collection but you can try to style in the way Madhuri did and bring the gleam she had in the movie.
