Bhumi Pednekar Is Turning Heads With The Humble Sari

From vibrant red and slinky organza saris to experimental fusion saris and her ‘Marathi mulgi’ ensembles, Bhumi Pednekar’s ethnic wear game is always on point. The Badhaai Do star always had an innate sense for dressing and her style evolution over the years stands as a testament to that. The actress’ sartorial choices serve as inspiration for dressing distinctly different body types—a refreshing and progressive step towards fostering inclusivity in mainstream Bollywood. When it comes to her sari draping, the star not only experiments with trends but also always grabs eyeballs whenever she steps out.

Pednekar made her debut with Dum Laga Ke Haisha in 2015, a movie that garnered media attention for more than her acting chops—she had to portray the role of an overweight bride for which she gained quite a few kilos. Once the buzz surrounding her impressive weight gain and subsequent weight loss faded, she was featured in other films including Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2017), Lust Stories (2018), Sonchiriya (2019) and Badhaai Do (2022)—making it clear that the actress was a force and talent to be reckoned with, with head-turning sartorial prowess up her sleeve, too.

If you’re searching for saris to add to your wardrobe essentials or want to experiment with fun, fusion styles, Pednekar’s recent looks serve as ample inspiration.
