National Awardees Waheeda Rehman, Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon were dressed similarly in cream sarees to the award ceremony held on Tuesday in New Delhi – but Alia's OOTD was special. The Best Actress winner – she shared the prize with Kriti – wore her wedding saree to receive her National Award from President Droupadi Murmu at Delhi's Vigyan Bhawan. Alia's saree – a scalloped off-white confection with delicate gold embroidery – is a Sabyasachi creation. On her wedding day – April 14, 2022 – Alia Bhatt wore the saree with a veil covering her head and jewellery also by Sabyasachi. To collect her National Award, Alia completed her look with flowers in her hair.
At the National Awards, Alia was accompanied by husband Ranbir Kapoor, looking sharp in black. The couple were spotted flying out of Mumbai on Tuesday morning.
