A Delhi-based Sindhi girl, Mira Rajput had married Punjabi munda, Shahid Kapoor in 2015 and she had shifted to Mumbai post-wedding. Though it has been five years, but the memories of Shahid and Mira's wedding are still fresh in our minds. Especially the first time when Shahid had come out to pose for the paparazzi with Mrs Kapoor. The 21-year-old Delhi girl had made us fall in love with the pastel lehengas when she had picked a blush-hued Anamika Khanna bridal ensemble for her special day, ditching the traditional red outfit.
In the pandemic-hit world, Vogue India had collaborated with the Natasha and Adar Poonawalla Foundation, to raise funds to champion their cause, To India With Love. Mira Rajput Kapoor too, became a part of this initiative to educate the audience about unique talents, celebrate our love for their artistry and to start a conversation about fair compensation for their efforts. Mira had posted a picture with her mother, Bela Rajput, wearing pieces hand-embroidered by the women artisans of SEWA. Mira had paired her sunshine yellow dress by the label, Grassroot by Anita Dongre, which costs Rs 19900, with a stack of her mother’s gold bangles.
Mira Rajput Kapoor had posted two pictures, one with her mother, Bela Rajput and a solo click of herself. Mira had captioned her posts as “Craft is an heirloom and the craftsmen, they are the true heirs to our country’s tradition. I grew up watching my mother cherish her wardrobe; beautiful heirloom pieces of craft that became more special with each passing year. Indian crafts have a language of their own. It is a bond between our past, our present and our future. It is also a way to contribute to the lives of countless artisans who are the backbone of our country and whose lives are threatened, everyday. This conversation needs to grow, and it can only grow if we all come together to pledge our support. We celebrate the women of the SEWA community, whose skilful hands embroidered the outfits from @anitadongregrassroot. @anitadongre’s passion and drive to revive and keep this craft alive is truly commendable. #ToIndiaWithLove @vogueindia @anitadongregrassroot @give_india” and “To my India, with love. Contemporary craft can exist, if we choose to embrace its soul. I’m wearing a beautifully embroidered dress from @anitadongregrassroot, hoops earrings from @outhousejewellery and a stack of my mother’s gold bangles. Choose India, and celebrate her craft. Donate to the karigars and artisans of our country, who are the caretakers of this tradition.” (Also Read: Mira Rajput Kapoor Gets Trolled For Casually Using Disorder, 'Split Personality' In Caption As A Pun)
