Kareena to wear Sharmila's Bridal Sharara
Kareena to wear Sharmila

Bride-to-be Kareena Kapoor picks the legacy way to dress on the day of her wedding to Saif Ali Khan.

While one would expect the slender actress to don some fabulous garment designed exclusively for her by any of her famous fashion designer friends, Bebo's choice has been the Pataudi bridal sharara. It's the same one that Mom-in-law-to-be Sharmila Tagore wore for her wedding to Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi on December 27, 1969. The Pataudi tradition suggests that it should be passed down from mother-in-law to daughter-in-law, and Kareena's absolutely fine with the idea.

"There was talk of Kareena draping a new saree but then, this is the custom in the Pataudi family and it is generally followed. Kareena had no issues when she was told about it. She and Sharmila bond very well,” informs a close aide of Kareena.

But it's still not decided as to whether the sharara will be altered to give it a more contemporary look. Designer Ritu Kumar, who is friends with Sharmila will be taking a call over this decision. No definite plans of change have been reported yet. "There is also a possibility she may wear the sharara without any changes whatsoever. Kareena and Sharmila have had discussions on this. A final call will be taken soon. The interesting part being Kareena will be seen in Sharmila's sharara at the biggest moment of her life."

This A-lister Bollywood wedding is set to be held at the Pataudi Palace, in Pataudi, Haryana. The date has been finalised as October 16.

This sure is going to be the most stylish event of the year!
