"I will also do a traditional Indian wedding since my father wants me to. Right now I am seriously thinking of marriage," said Sushmita.
Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen has
marriage on her mind and says it's her dream to have a lavish
Christian style wedding.
"It is my childhood dream to have a Christian style
wedding, just like the fairy tales. I always imagine myself as
a bride who will wear a gown, with a long train and veil. I
find the idea of walking down the aisle and then being handed
to the groom by the father very romantic," Sushmita said.
The 36-year-old former Miss Universe, who has two adopted
daughters Renee and Alishah, said she is now thinking
seriously about getting married.
"I will also do a traditional Indian wedding since my
father wants me to. Right now I am seriously thinking of
marriage. May be something will happen next year," she added.
Sushmita has allegedly dated director Mudassar Aziz and
actor Randeep Hooda earlier. She was recently rumoured to be
dating business man Imtiaz Khatri.
The actress walked the ramp for designer Mandira Wirk at
the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour here last night, wearing a
full-skirted old rose coloured ball gown and looked every bit
like the bride of her dreams.
"Walking around in this dress is very emotional because
of what it depicts. I am a firm believer in the institution of
marriage and I feel all these are signs that are telling me it
is time," she said.
Wirk's collection oozed romanticism. The colour story
started with fresh ivories to muted silver going down to
powder hues of aqua, lilacs, lemons, apricots and rose pinks.
There was a lot of layering with foil printed organza, pleated
nets and crumbled satins.
The use of props such as umbrellas and fans added to the
old world charm.
Origami and ribbon embroidery with soft bows, chiffon
drapes and thigh high slits completed the look. Besides ball
gowns, the collection also had slim evening dresses with tight
pleating, one shouldered tulle gowns with stunning trains and
body hugging shifts.
Earlier in the evening model-turned-actress Bipasha Basu
walked the ramp for designer friend Nandita Mahtani, who
displayed her resort-cum-evening wear collection.
"I started modelling from the age of 16 and within three
years I was bored and decided to shift to films. But I love
modelling because it gave me independence. I love coming back
and working with my old designer and model friends," said
Bipasha, who wore a neon green maxi dress with detailed sequin
work in the hemline.
Mahtani's collection consisted of a range of structured
to easy flowing silhouettes. The colour boasted of deep
sparkling metallics and bright summer hues of pink, red,
The fabrics used in the clothes were georgettes,
chiffons, satins and crepes embellished with sequins, chains,
stones and beads.
