Alia Bhatt and Rekha made a strong case for wearing a sari for a formal event with their red carpet looks at the recently held Dadsaheb Phalke International Film Festival.

The two powerhouse performers attended the event to receive awards for their work, with Bhatt accepting the trophy for Best Actress (Gangubai Kathiawadi) and Rekha being appropriately honoured for her ‘Outstanding Contribution In The Film Industry’.

While it’s expected for the veteran actress to stand out in her beautiful saris (paired with her signature bun with gajra), Bhatt made the unexpected choice to go with an understated white Torani sari and a pair of stud earrings, reminding us of the many white looks we saw from her during the promotional run of Gangubai.

Both actresses took the time to pose for the gathered paparazzi with their trophies, giving them megawatt smiles and picture-perfect moments like when Rekha kissed Bhatt’s cheek, leaving the younger actress beaming beautifully.

Ranbir Kapoor, who won the award for ‘Best Actor’ (Brahmastra: Part One- Shiva) was notably absent from the event and Bhatt accepted the award on his behalf. Other attendees included Varun Dhawan, Anupam Kher, Rishab Shetty, Shreyas Talpade, and R Balki.
