Kangana Ranaut, Aditi Rao Hydari, Neha Dhupia and more support National Handloom Day

Textile minister Smriti Irani took over our timelines with the hashtag #IWearHandloom trending on Twitter and Instagram. It wasn’t just another case of hashtag activism either, since it coincided with the introduction of key changes in our textile policy. Meanwhile, see how the fashion and film industry came out to support the new campaign championing handloom weaves for National Handloom Day.
