What Deepika wore in 2017

A few years ago, Deepika attended an awards function wearing a saree designed by Sabyasachi. She wore a sheer tulle saree with floral applique for the Marathi Filmfare Awards 2017. The saree featured a light smattering of shimmery embellishment, an embroidered border, and an extended train. She wore the nude drape with a matching sleeveless blouse carrying a plunging neckline and similar floral embellishments.

What Reddit thinks

A Reddit user shared a collage of Alia and Deepika’s looks from the respective events. The title read, “Sabyasachi has to stop copy-pasting his old looks.” A comment read, “He has been called out before, but nope.” A person said, “Alia should have opted for Gaurav Gupta or Rahul Mishra, Sabya’s designs are so repetitive it sore to the eyes now.” A comment read, “Katrina also wore it at her wedding, and it’s ever closer with the same green colour palettes. Sabya should have given her a lehenga instead or something.”

Another person said, “I was telling y’all that these designs are common in India. Sabya himself has rinsed and repeated it so many times. Aloo looked beautiful and embrodery was amazing but was this a MeT GALA worthy look, no. And Alia should really blast on Sabya, man.” A Reddit user commented, “Sabya run out of idea.”
