Vidya Balan Giving the Understated Cool Blue a Spin for the E-Promotions of Shakuntala Devi!



Vidya Balan quashed the male-dominated stereotype of the hero-centric Bollywood with the portrayal of strong-willed characters and carved a niche for herself right from The Dirty Picture (2011) and Kahaani (2012). She is all set to ring in the same charm with her next release, Shakuntala Devi that will be released on the OTT platform of Prime Video on 31st July! Rolling the ball with the first of its kind – e-promotions, Vidya played dress up all whilst reigning in an impeccable neo-ethnic style. A blue and white Punit Balana ensemble from his Royal Bagh collection that was showcased at the LFW 2020 Spring/Summer edition earlier this year. While she is an official and undisputed saree ambassador and a certified chameleon of all things traditional and stunning, Vidya does throw in an occasional curveball with a neo-ethnic style. Vidya has found her styling solace with the stylist duo of Shounak Amonkar and Pranay Jaitley of Who Wore What When as the duo’s forte of ethnic sensibilities align perfectly with Vidya’s signature style.

Vidya shunned and strode past the stereotypical Bollywood diva body image a long time ago. Additionally, she never misses an opportunity to assert her stark demeanour with aplomb and blends ethnicity with contemporary sensibilities seamlessly. Here’s a closer look at her style. Vidya Balan Spins a Splendid Saree Story and Here’s Why It’s on Our Wishlist!
