Taking to Instagram she shared how this Diwali, she wanted to do something different, for which she “wore something different”. Captioning the post, the actor wrote: “This lehenga is a labour of love of so many amazing people – the children of AOL free schools whose names are embroidered on it and karigars who worked across many months. (sic)”

The lehenga, ‘My Beautiful Planet‘, is actually a set of drawings made by 35 children studying in the free schools of AOL. Made in the last four months of the pandemic by ’13 karigars’, the lehenga represents the earth — if you look closely, you will notice the deserts, the seas, the waterfalls and even the solar system!

It is made out of 100 per cent waste fabric, and truly there could be no better day to wear this, given that both Diwali and Children’s Day were celebrated on the same day.
