Being the wife of the richest Indian has multiple perks and that include splurging a whooping Rupees Forty Lakhs on a sari.. At the wedding of the Reliance Industries’ Group CEO – Parimal Nathwani’s son in Ahmedabad on the 3rd of February, 2014, the Ambani khaandan was in full strength and so were the aspiring Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and his side-kick, Amit Shah. Arvind Kejriwal is not entirely wrong in linking Ambani to Narendra Modi.
Coming back to Nita Ambani’s Rs.4 million sari. The sari was designed by the director of Chennai Silks – Sivalingam and featured the reproduction of eleven paintings of Raja Ravi Varma. It took 36 skilled craftsmen 12 months at Chennai Sil Mills in Kancheepuram to hand-weave this sari, which is called ‘Vivaah Patu’ sari. The opulent sari weighs 8 kilograms and now has entered the Guinness Book of World Record.
I wonder if the radical Hindus will be up in arms against Nita Ambani for wearing a sari that has Lord of Nathdwara depicted on the blouse. Anyway I feel if Nita Ambani would have used Rupees Forty Lakhs in rehabilitating craftsmen of Kaancheepuram, she would have earned lot more appreciation.
