Actors Neha Joshi and Himani Shivpuri have opened up on their enduring love for sarees and traditional attire, revealing the most precious possessions in their collections.

Neha and Himani shine in sarees that enhance their grace and charm, both on and off-screen.

Their wardrobes featuring luxurious Kanjeevarams and intricate Chikankari sarees reflect a deep connection with India's rich textile heritage.

Neha, who plays Krishna Bihari Vajpayee in the show 'Atal', said: "Sarees have always held a special place in my wardrobe and heart. Recently, while promoting my show 'Atal' in Lucknow, I got myself one of the finest pieces of Chikankari cotton saree."

"This exquisite saree, one of the most expensive in my collection, is a true testament to the artistry and heritage of Lucknow. Its delicate hand-embroidered patterns and soft cotton fabric felt like wearing a garment steeped in rich tradition. The saree is so special to me that I decided to keep it at my mother's place in Nashik. As we both love to share our sarees, seeing her wear it brings me immense joy," she added.

Himani, who plays Katori Amma in the sitcom 'Happu Ki Ultan Paltan', said: "The most precious possession in my collection of sarees is my red Banarasi saree which I purchased during a memorable visit to Varanasi. The rich, radiant silk and intricate zari work make each Banarasi saree a masterpiece."
