"I am wearing a corset made from chikankari and it has the classical work of House of Kotwara beadwork done with chikankari" Dia told Rediff.com's Prasanna Zore.

"This is a creation designed by Sama Ali, Muzaffar and Meera Ali's daughter who has grown and loved to celebrate Indian craftsmanship from a small village called Kotwara."

The showstopping outfit featured floral embroidery which Dia wore with a pleated dupatta.
