If there's one Indian outfit that silver screen stunners can never have enough of, it's the sari.

Grand or graceful, it's the ultimate in fashion and feminine. No matter what budget or body type, the upshot is always va va voom.

Sukanya Verma looks at how Bollywood's leading ladies show off their sari love these days.

Bold hues of neon green floral print blouse paired against a scalloped border sari, Kiara makes quite a style statement.

Ms Dandekar channels her inner Maharani in a shocking pink and zari weave teamed up with a contrasting blouse.

She may have kick-started her adult career as a wrestler, but Fatima's fondness for saris is well documented on screen and off it. The actress is a sight to behold in off white and powder blue.

What do you think of Mrinal's sleek and sequinned avatar?

Taapsee shows off her desi swag while out and about on the streets of Russia in a sari and sneakers combo.


Kriti Kharbanda

Kriti's all for 'if you got it flaunt it,' killing two birds with a stone while showing off her fit form and dainty grey and gold georgette to all and sundry.


Madhuri Dixit-Nene

Be it the dhak dhak dhoti style in Beta or the exorbitant crystal encrusted front pallu look in Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!, Madhuri's sari game is stuff of classics. How lovely is the legend in her multi-coloured floral number?


Kangana Ranaut

Ms Ranaut sports a traditional kanjeevaram look bearing a resemblance to Jaya Bachchan's sari and styling in Abhimaan's Teri Bindiya song.


Mouni Roy

Mouni's belted touch to the classic garment lends it a fun vibe and contemporary feel.


Dia Mirza

Never a false note in Dia's sartorial sensibilities -- be it a sari, salwar or skirt.


Vidya Balan

When there's a mention of seven yards, can the queen of sari be far behind? Vidya has mastered the art of donning and adorning the sari like a PRO.


Konkona Sen Sharma

Another unsung champion of the handloom style, Koko's sari aesthetic is as keen and classy as her art.

Always happy to showcase her glitzy sari collection during festivals and celebrations, we heartily approve of Kajol's golden yellow accompanied with a pop of red.


Tillotama Shome

A tiny glimpse of the elegant Tillotama in a vintage style sari with bold motifs is enough reason to see her on the fashion pages more often.


Katrina Kaif

If her silver sari number in the Tip Tip Barsa remix is raising the mercury on screen, her dreamy odes to chiffon in pastel hues have our heart off it.
