As a vast country, India has amazing diversity and cultural differences. Each state has a different culture and tradition resulting in a mixture of cultures in one country. Actresses too, who come from various parts of the country do not let go of their roots. They are seen wearing their favorite traditional sarees on special occasions. These sarees belong to the state from where the actresses hail.
Here are some traditional sarees worn by actresses from different states of India..
1. Kanchipuram Sarees From Tamil Nadu
There can be nothing more beautiful to wear for an Indian woman than a Kanchipuram saree. It is a 9 yards of bliss. Made originally in a small town called Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu, this saree is absolutely breathtaking. It comes in various colors and designs. Special occasions like weddings are incomplete in south India without these sarees. Famous actresses like Hema Malini, Rekha and late Sridevi are seen mostly wearing these stunning sarees to most of the occasions.
2. Korial Saree From West Bengal
The white saree from Bengal is light to wear and looks elegant. The red border is like a burst of color to the simple saree. Bengali actresses like Rani Mukherjee, Kajol, Sushmita Sen and Konkona Sen are seen many times in these sarees. Bipasha Basu who is a Bengali too wore a splendid red lehenga which is a staple in West Bengal, for her wedding.
3. Nauvari Saree From Maharashtra
Actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Sonali Bendre and Shraddha Kapoor are from Maharastra. Hence we often see them in beautiful Maharastrian sarees called the nauvari saree. These sarees are worn in a unique style. They look very traditional and are suitable for festivals and poojas.
4. Langa Voni From Andhra Pradesh
This is not really a complete saree hence it is also called as the half saree. The langa voni consists of a blouse worn on a skirt and covered with a dupatta. The langa voni is a traditional attire from Andhra Pradesh. From little girls to young women, we can see them all wearing langa vonis. Diya Mirza who is from Hyderabad is often seen wearing the traditional langa voni. Sportswoman Jwala Gutta and actress Bindu Madhavi also wear the half saree with elegance.
5. Kasavu Saree From Kerala
The crisp white saree from Kerala is what you should wear if you want to keep it simple, yet attractive. The kasavu saree is almost like a uniform during the season of Onam. Women from Kerala love to wear this white saree with golden border to weddings and other functions. Actresses such as Vidya Balan, Asin and Bhama who are from Kerala love to flaunt their Kasavu sarees once in a while.
6. Nawabi Lehenga From Pataudi
The Nawab family from Pataudi in Haryana is rich, royal and cultural. They are the ones who wear the most expensive clothes with intricate designs. The ladies of the Bollywood Nawab family are seen wearing heavy clothes that are regal.
We just love it when the actresses wear their native state’s traditional sarees.
