Actor Sonakshi Sinha, who has flaunted a desi, sari-clad look in most of her Bollywood films, says she was fascinated by the six-yard wrap as a kid.

“I was very young when I started wearing my mom’s (Poonam Sinha) saris. I always saw her in saris and used to drape her pallu. I’ve been doing it for a while now and now I do it for my profession. I think sari is the most graceful garment the Indians have come up with,” the 26-year-old said during the photoshoot for a sari brand.

Sonakshi’s debut film Dabangg saw her in simple saris too, but she admits she doesn’t really know how to drape it. “I have been wearing a sari since my first film, but I’ve never actually done it myself.,” she said. “But I carry off a sari very well. There is a misconception is that only mature women are supposed to wear saris,” she said.
