Manish Malhotra revealed that Parineeti Chopra wore her maternal grandmother's traditional keychain on her wedding as a tribute to her
Parineeti Chopra's wedding was a dreamy affair. With tones of ivory and gold dominating her look, the actress made for a stunning bride. Manish Malhotra was the designer of her wedding lehenga. She wore a handcrafted golden tone-on-tone geometrical lehenga which took over 2,500 hours of work.
Manish shared pictures of her outfit and her interesting and meaningful kaleeras. He revealed on Instagram that the actress wanted to incorporate her maternal grandmother's traditional keychain into her look. "Some details make all the difference. I distinctly remember discussing the lehenga design with @parineetichopra, who mentioned adding her Nani's challa (traditional keychain) to it! She wanted to pay a heartfelt tribute to her nani, who used to wear the same challa in her saree with the keys, a symbol of being the lady of the house," Manish said.
He further added, "For Parineeti, the sound of the challa when her nani walked around the house, was a melody of strength and grace. And that's when I knew we HAD to add that piece of legacy to her lehenga. Of course, we added more elements that were significant to both Raghav and Parineeti like London, music, Khanda Sahib and more. It was not just an accessory... but a piece of her that Parineeti would have on her special day."
