The Indian film industry launches superstars almost every year. From heart-wrenching or truly entertaining stories to setting the bar for trending fashion looks, the contribution of the Indian film industry and actors has been incredible. When talking about upcoming Bollywood stars who are making their mark with impeccable work and gorgeous fashion looks, Mrunal Thakur is among the first names that come to mind. Mrunal Thakur is a name that has made a buzz in the Indian film industry not just for her extraordinary on-screen performances but also for setting the stage on fire with her flamboyant looks. This Leo lady has set a mark in the world of films and entertainment with her incredible acting skills across the Hindi, Marathi, and Telugu film industries.

Her momentous journey from the television show Kumkum Bhagya as Bulbul Arora Khanna to her iconic roles in films like Jersey, Sita Ramam, and Gumraah has been truly remarkable. The Batla House actress is famed for some of her most bold and ravishing looks. From Bazaar and Bridal Asia to Cosmopolitan and Grazia, she has been a cover model for several iconic magazines. This media-favourite celeb has stolen our hearts through a variety of magnificent looks. From her uh-mazing vacay looks from Goa that exuded some breezy beach vibes to her elegant looks in several traditional Indian outfits, she has truly set a benchmark for serving noteworthy looks at various events.

Mrunal Thakur X WeaverStory

While exploring her own little fashionable universe, she has tried on thousands of silhouettes, styles, fabrics, patterns, and looks and has slayed each of them impressively. Mrunal isn’t afraid of experimentation and that is one reason why we absolutely adore her. We are beyond delighted to have had the opportunity to collaborate with a celebrity like her. Let’s give you a glimpse of her eye-catching  WeaverStory look.

Since we know that she is someone who does not step back from experimenting with different looks and styles, we, in collaboration with the famed stylist Manisha Melwani, decided to doll her up in one of our most amazing creations from the Angoor Jaal collection. The  Red  handloom saree she wore is a pure katan silk saree meticulously designed and crafted with utmost attention to detail. It is an extraordinarily appealing drape that looks arresting to the eyes and can serve as an heirloom archive for the future.

The ravishing Red Banarasi Saree has been brilliantly crafted by hand by the ingenious artisans of Banaras. It took days of painstaking efforts by our artisans to create an astounding artwork like this. They crafted every single thread of the katan Banarasi weave carefully, one by one, to make the Banarasi Saree appealing to the eyes as well as comfortable and highly durable for long-term use. The red expanse of the drape has been lavishly decorated with intricately crafted Angoor Jaal patterns scattered throughout. The  jalangoora is made with delicate sona (gold) and rupa (silver) zari threads, which add a peculiar touch of royalty to the pure silk saree. This convoluted, extraordinary weave has been thoughtfully made employing the age-old Kadhwa weaving technique.

To give her traditional look a modern spin, she added a custom-made pink paisley brocade single-breasted blazer. This alluring hot pink blazer features intricate paisley motifs and floral jaal crafted using orange threads and gold zari that perfectly match the saree’s extraordinary aesthetic appeal. To add the "extra" to the saree’s "extraordinary" visual appeal, the look is completed with three-strand braid, further adorned with two hot pink satin scrunchies and gold strings wrapped along the length. Her gold bali is paired with three chains attached to her hair, which give her an imperial Baahubali earrings kind of look. For the makeup, the look was kept simple, with gold highlights and pink lips that complemented the saree’s traditional looks.
