Most recently, Manish Malhotra told us everything we needed to know about Urmila Matondkar‘s gorgeous wedding lehenga. But he told us a little something about all his other Bollywood brides too! From Preity Zinta and Kajol to Kareena Kapoor Khan and Mira Rajput, Manish has dressed them all and he has memories attached to most of them. Here’s what he said…
Karisma’s wedding was a one day affair at RK studios in Mumbai. It was a very special and emotional as I had not launched my label then and I made her an outfit. I launched my label post Karishma’s wedding.
When Sridevi got married to Boney Kapoor, I made her beautiful South Indian temple saris, but I didn’t know that they were for her marriage!
It was the same with Kajol, as it was the first time I made a Nauvari saree.
With reference to Preity, she came to my house in November 2015 and spoke about her wedding in February 2016. It was a private affair.
The love, respect and trust that I have gained from all these actors who I have worked with, I feel it’s a big achievement and they know I can keep secrets well.
The brides of today are confident and are not shying away from trying different looks for different functions; which I believe is very good. But for her wedding day, I like the thought of embracing tradition, in cuts that suit every bride individually.
Thank you Manish!
