The recent wave of promotional style for our B-town actresses dictates the inclusion of the much-loved saree. The now-ubiquitous style of a resplendent six-yard adorned to perfection with jewellery and impeccable makeup finds its place in the style arsenal. The sequin saree is the much talked about ensemble to have and flaunt this season. The sequined saree with all its shimmer and promised jazz is a perfect party number. Leading ladies, Kajol Devgan and Deepika Padukone raised the stakes of their promotional vibe for their respective films, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Chhapaak with a sequined saree. With Manish Malhotra and Sabyasachi creating their versions of the midnight blue-hued sequined saree, they found their muse in Kajol Devgan and Deepika Padukone respectively. As much as the two films are all set to clash on the box office, the leading ladies had a clash of style too!
Our roving fashion eye couldn't help but compare the two styles. But who draped the shimmery six-yard the best? Let's figure out!
Deepika Padukone - The Sabyasachi Muse
Styled by Shaleena Nathani, Deepika draped a midnight blue sequinned saree with a matching blouse, gold shimmery bangles, earrings, statement ring, defined eyes, nude lips and a pseudo wet textured hairdo.
Kajol Devgan - The Manish Malhotra Muse
Styled by Radhika Mehra, Kajol draped a midnight blue sequin saree by Manish Malhotra with a dainty layered necklace, sleek hair and nude lips nailed to perfection!
Fashion Face-off - Deepika Padukone or Kajol Devgan
While its needless to state the obvious that both the divas look absolutely smashing in the dark hue. While Deepika opted to up the drama with defined eyes, Kajol opted to keep it minimal. The Manish Malhotra saree with its contemporary sequined design pales the vintage Sabyasachi sequined number.
Chhapaak is scheduled for release on January 10, 2020, and also marks Deepika’s first project as a producer. The drama, directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Deepika Padukone and Meghna Gulzar in collaboration with Fox Star Studios features Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey. It is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Deepika essays the role of Malti, the acid attack survivor whose strong sense of self, beliefs and resilience to bring the perpetrators to justice forms the crux of this film.
Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is a biographical period action film featuring Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan, Kajol, Jagapathi Babu, Pankaj Tripathi and Sharad Kelkar in lead roles. Directed by Om Raut, the film's narrative is set in the 17th century and based on the life of Tanaji Malusare, who was the military leader of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, founder of the Maratha Empire. The film is scheduled to be released in 3D on 10 January 2020.
