Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt won her first National Film Award for Gangubai Kathiwadi. She shared the Best Actress award with Kriti Sanon, who won it for Mimi. On October 17, Alia jetted off to Delhi to receive the prestigious award with her actor-husband Ranbir Kapoor.
Several pictures and videos of the actress have surfaced on social media. However, what caught our attention was Alia's saree. The actress wore her wedding saree for the event. On the other hand, Ranbir accompanied her in an all-black outfit.
Alia looked gorgeous in the ivory Sabyasachi saree. She opted for minimal makeup and tied her hair in a bun.
Earlier, in an interview, Alia stated that she finds the six yards the most comfortable garment and hence made it her bridal wear.
While interacting with DD National at the red carpet of the event, Alia said, "Gratitude in my heart... Honored to receive my first National Award for Gangubai Kathiawadi and Special thanks to my director Sanjay Leela Bhansali."
The winners of National Film Awards were announced in August 2023. To share her excitement upon receiving the award, Alia shared a picture in which she recreated her Gangubai pose and penned a long note.
