According to reports Kareena Kapoor will be wearing Sharmila Tagore's wedding outfit!

Sharmila who is Saif Ali Khan's mother, gave her traditional wedding outfit to Kareena.

The outfit consists of a traditional kurta, dupatta and farshi paijama and was gifted to Sharmila Tagore by her mother in law, Begum Sajida Sultan of Bhopal, who wore it at her wedding in 1939.

Designer Ritu Kumar commented: "Kareena will be wearing the original dupatta, while the kurta and farshi paijama are being recreated for her."

"The original dupatta was in good condition, but the fabric was a little old and we had to re-line it. The whole process took us about four to six months. The new pieces also had to be made exactly like the older ones, with intricate embroidery. It’s a time consuming process and requires highly skilled labor."
