Janhvi Kapoor who is all set to win audiences hearts with her upcoming film, 'Mr and Mrs Mahi' in the end of the month was recently seen promoting her film in Varanasi. She donned a beautiful saree! But here’s what was really unique about it! 

At the Ganga Aarti, with co-star Rajkumar Rao, she was seen wearing a metallic light blue saree that has delicate warli painting that portrays the cricket stadium and the evolution of the cricket bat is highlighted flanked by the foundational cricket jargon! Warli painting is one of the hardest prints to print, especially on something as delicate as a saree. And this, is simply beautiful. 

Describing the look, stylist Ami Patel wrote, "A traditional kanjivaram saree with a hand painted cricket detail. The pallu depicts a batsman scoring a boundary in a full stadium, 1983 when India won he World Cup, in the traditional warli style of painting. The evolution of the cricket bat is also highlighted flanked by the foundational cricket jargon".

When Mr. Mahi (Rajkummar Rao) discovers Mrs Mahi (Janhvi) can play cricket, he decides to coach her.

'Mr & Mrs Mahi' is directed by Sharan Sharma, who is known for his directorial debut Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Mr & Mrs Mahi marks the second collaboration between Janhvi and Sharan. It also marks the second collaboration between Janhvi and RajKummar. The duo was earlier seen in 'Roohi'. The film is backed by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. It will hit the theatres on May 31.
