In a video posted by actor Riteish Deshmukh on Twitter, he shares how he recycled his mother’s old sari into a kurta for himself and his two sons. The warm gesture is certainly winning our hearts and giving major cues to recycle saris which aren’t worn anymore.
He captioned the post: “माँ की पुरानी साड़ी, बच्चों के लिए दिवाली के नए कपड़े। Happy Diwali”
The video which opens to a bright blue turquoise sari being waved into the screen soon translates into a beautiful transition where the actor and his kids are seen in the same colour but in kurtis. Take a look at the video below.
