In a video shared by Vogue, wherein Alia Bhatt was seen getting ready for her appearance at the Met Gala 2024, she opened up about her first memory of wearing a saree. The actress recalled how she draped a saree for Teachers’ Day in her 9th standard, but when she reached her school, the pleats of her drape opened. Talking about the incident, Alia shared:

“I remember the first time I wore a saree was for Teachers’ Day. I was in the 9th grade, and as I reached my school, my pleats opened. So I went into the bathroom, and they were like, ‘Baby, kya ho raha hai?’ and like quickly, quickly, they were putting my pleats back for me.”
