For someone who is always seen in public in six yards of fabric, Celina's love affair with the sari began early in her teens.

“First time I donned the sari was for my Class X farewell ball. It’s then I realised boys were paying more attention,” quips Celina.

Over the years, many saris have fetched her countless compliments but her favourite sari is not a designer piece but one that's been an heirloom.

“It is a typical kantha from Bengal and has been with the family for generations,” Celina explains.

Her love for saris has now led the actress to design them for a leading sari brand.
