Will these FAB saris be part of Vidya Balan's trousseau?

After Kareena Kapoor, it's the turn of another reigning heroine in Bollywood to tie the knot.

The star of critically and commercially acclaimed films like Ishqiya, Paa, The Dirty Picture and Kahaani is reportedly all set to wed her beau Siddharth Roy Kapur, also the CEO of UTV Motion Pictures on December 14.

The duo met during the making of No One Killed Jessica in 2011 but the 34-year-old actress confirmed their relationship only in May this year. This will be Kapur's third marriage and the duo is keeping the celebrations intimate and guarded.

While there are reports of a Punjabi sangeet and Tamilian nuptials ceremony in Mumbai followed by a reception in Chennai, one thing's quite obvious -- the dulhan will be clad in tons of Sabyasachi Mukerjee.

The Kolkata-based designer has been VB's favourite ever since he turned her into a portrait of grace with his elegant style. Apparently, he's working on creating 18 exquisite saris with silk specially brought down from Tamil Nadu.

While we have no sneak peeks of that, knowing the man's signature style on his classic muse, it's not all that hard to imagine. So, on that note, here's a look at 18 of her most resplendent sari appearances in a Sabya or traditional Kanjeevaram.

Be it The Dirty Picture or a sparkling real life appearance, few can rock red like Vidya does.

The lady looks fantastic in this simple red sari with a gold, embellished border -- a perfect mix of glamour and grace.
