She further wrote that the actor was wearing “a traditional Gujrati gherdaar chaniyo (ghaghra), with an abla kaapdu (mirror work blouse blouse) and odhni (chunni) in white and red, which usually is our favorite combination for Garba during Navaratri.” The look was pulled together with traditional jewellery, about which she elaborated further.
“We’ve had a lot of fun and gone all out with jewellery and tattoos as well. The maang tika is called tikdo, the earrings are vedhla’s or kundal, the nose ring is a nakvesar, the necklace is called a haslo, kamar patti is called kandoro, payals are jhanjra’s, the broad bangles are called paatla’s or baloya’s and thin ones are called chudli’s. The beautiful green tattoo’s were a tradition and are called chundna (I think that means inscription),” she wrote.
