The ‘Junglee’ star was dressed in a shaded blue mekhela chador and her daughter Soha adorned a royal blue lehenga- thereby unveiling Sanjukta Dutta’s new festive collection ‘Akash’.

“Handloom has always been a favourite and I have worn it quite regularly,” said Tagore.
“I have draped mekhela chador in the past as well. Walking for Sanjukta’s collection was a pure delight,” the veteran actor added.

“It is always a great thing when an age-old drape is redefined aesthetically with modern designs and a theme. Sanjukta does it every year,” said Soha Ali Khan.

Sanjukta Dutta expressed her happiness of having got the opportunity to work with the two actors.
Sanjukta Dutta was a prominent face of the Yashraj film ‘Sui Dhaga’ for which she designed the logo.
