Vidya Balan And Tahira Kashyap Flaunt Their Beautiful Sarees As They Pay A Tribute To The Local Artists On Handloom Day
On Handloom day, Vidya Balan and Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap took to her Instagram account to share the significance and importance of local artists on handloom day. They were seen sharing some gorgeous pictures of themselves wearing handmade sarees. Talking about Vidya, her Instagram account is enough to depict her love for handlooms and local designers. The actress has always promoted local business against the high-end brands offering a platform for small scale industries across the nation to showcase their talent. Marking the occasion of Handloom Day, Vidya Balan penned a heartwarming note encouraging everyone to promote the local artisans. 

Sharing pictures of herself in a silk handloom saree, Vidya Balan said, "The beauty of silk blossoms in the handlooms. The artistry and allure of Handloom Indian Silks are unmatched. Let us wear handloom silk products with pride and celebrate the magical creations of our weavers, today and every day! That alone would be a fitting tribute to their passion and devotion towards their masterful craft.” Over the years, Vidya Balan has opted for not just wearing local handloom products but also extensively promoting them through her social media. Being vocal about her fondness and support for the artisans, Vidya Balan has even worn sarees from her wardrobe in her films.


Interesting trivia, in Shakuntala Devi, stylist Niharika Bhasin used Indian Sarees from her mother's wardrobe while some sarees were taken from Vidya's personal wardrobe, promoting clothes designed by local artisans. 

Even during promotions of her films, Shakuntala Devi and Sherni, Vidya Balan opted for only Indian clothes which were mostly works from local weavers from small scale industries and remote places of India, hustling through social media amidst the pandemic. Offering a helping hand to the media and fashion industry blooming in the heartlands of the nation, Vidya Balan has provided a platform for them to flourish.

Talking about Tahira, known for her heartfelt, candid and striking style of storytelling, Tahira Kashyap Khurrana has been an inspirational force on social media. Narrating yet another incident, depicting the importance of love, hope and belief, Tahira shares her handloom story. 


With throwback pictures from 2018, Tahira Kashyap Khurrana took a look back at her chemotherapy days saying, "This is from 1 December 2018. I was done with 10 chemotherapy sessions. Used some spray and powder to cover the areas from where I was losing hair. But did I want to shy away from the world? Nope! Love from family and friends and most importantly my faith in my practise lead me to believe and know that this version of myself is beautiful too. This is my #handloom story". 

Emerging as the source of inspiration for strength and positivity, Tahira has carved a niche for herself amongst the audience with her diverse work.
