The 69th National Film Awards in Delhi recently awarded Bollywood superstar Alia Bhatt with the nation’s highest honor for her stirring performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi.
President Murmu gave her a certificate as well as the Silver Lotus. Alia posed with President Murmu, and Ranbir Kapoor, an actor, was seen photographing the occasion on his phone.
To the amazement of those present, Alia attended the ceremony and accepted her prize while wearing a “special outfit”—her Wedding Saree. The well-known actress, dressed in her signature champagne-colored Sabyasachi costume, was a sight to behold.
She replaced her bulky kundun jewelry, meanwhile, with a chic pearl choker and coordinating earrings for the occasion. In keeping with her personal style, Alia kept her makeup simple and adorned her updo with roses as a nod to the role she played in Sanjay’s film.
The Darlings actress shared her feelings about wearing her wedding saree in a note she posted later on Tuesday. “A special day calls for a special outfit,” Alia captioned a photo of herself from the occasion. And occasionally, that outfit is already there. What was once special can become special once more. And once more.
A few hours after the ceremony was over, Alia gave her admirers access to some beautiful images and videos from the event. She is seen posing with other National Award winners Kriti Sanon and Allu Arjun in one of the photos. In another, she can be seen proudly displaying her award while grinning widely in a selfie with her husband Ranbir.
The actor kept the caption simple. “A photo, a moment, a memory for life,” she wrote. Alia’s post received love from her industry friends. Dia Mirza wrote, “So so so happy and proud,” while Mrunal Thakur wrote, “Congratulations.”
In contrast, Kriti personifies sophistication and tradition while wearing a handloom saree that Manish Malhotra customized. A brocade border and delicate zardozi embroidery are manually applied to an ivory-hued Chanderi handloom saree.
