Bollywood Actresses in Saree

In many polls conducted in magazines and newspapers, Indian men, cutting across all sections have opined that Indian women look the most desirable in saree than in any other outfit.  I am not a big fan of sarees, but I get saree as gifts a lot of times.  Its good to wear them once in a while on certain occasions, but I have to admit bollywood divas look oh-so-gorgeous in sarees.  They pull off the Kanjeevaram look with the same confidence and poise as when wearing an Elie Saab gown.  Let’s check out some of the Bollywood divas who make sarees look great!

1.  Deepika Padukone:  Standing tall at 5 feet 9 inches, she looks absolutely marvelous in sarees.  From walking the red carpet at film premieres to strutting on the carpet at Cannes, she oftens wears sarees and manages to look great every time.
