Anushka Sharma had made everyone skip their heartbeat for a nanosecond when she looked like a Goddess in a pink Sabyasachi Mukherjee ensemble. But what had made her ditch the stereotypical bridal colour of red and don a pink attire? Anushka Sharma, in a recent interview with the Vogue magazine, addressed this burning question and finally revealed as to why she went for pale pink. She shared, “When I met Sabyasachi [Mukherjee] I told him very clearly that for my wedding look I wanted to go with pale pink. I didn’t want to do a traditional red because it was a day wedding. I envisioned pastel colours, flowers. The vibe was such—not too much.”

For her wedding reception in Delhi, Anushka Sharma had worn a red Benarasi saree with complementing traditional jewellery. Revealing why she had gone traditional for her reception, Anushka stated in the same interview, “I told Sabya I wanted to do a traditional red Benarasi sari and I wanted to do it with the sindoor, the heavy traditional jewellery, all of that... And I think he was also very excited by the Benarasi red. I remember having a conversation with him where he said, ‘You know, nowadays a lot of girls wear gowns at their reception and I thought you’d ask me for something like that’ and I said, ‘No, I want to wear an Indian sari at my reception.’” (Must Read: Kangana Ranaut Dancing On A 'Pahadi' Song At Her Brother, Akshat's Engagement Is #FamilyGoals)
