This is Kareena Kapoor Khan’s complete sari evolution

One drape at a time

Whether it’s for an item number or for an annual awards function, Kareena Kapoor Khan has unfailingly impressed us with her myriad styles of wearing the traditional sari. From those tiny cholis and low-slung ghagras in the 2003 movie, Chameli, to her recent blazer-over-sari look styled by Rhea Kapoor, the actress’s sari style has undoubtedly taken a 360 degree turn. 

And if there is one element Bebo makes clear to everyone, it’s her love for Manish Malhotra’s designs. The A-lister has chosen his designs for weddings, movie shoots and award functions like over the years. Whether it’s the minimal red sari gown she wore for the release of her song Chammak Challo in 2011 or the light pink and white embellished sari she picked for her sister-in-law Soha Ali Khan’s wedding in 2015, we can observe the designer’s creativity go ten notches up, proving that he too has come a long way in dressing his favourite muse.

Scroll through the gallery to see Kareena’s complete turnaround in wearing the sari.
