Ace designer Sanjukta Dutta needs no introduction as she is quite a household name after marking her fashion territory in the tinsel town with her exclusive range of beautifully designed with intricate works of traditional attire: mekhela chador.
While top Bollywood celebrities have time and again sashayed the ramp with the Assamese drape for Dutta, the fashion designer has been a stronghold to bring the traditional attire on the national map.
From Bipasha to Priyanka Chopra to Tabu and from Manisha Koirala to Dia Mirza to Malaika Arora, mekhela chador has become the buzzword in the runways. Here are a few compilations where b-town celebs showed that Assamese drape is love:
