Tennis champion Venus Williams is in Bengaluru for the Champions Tennis League (CTL) that will last ten days and sees her as a part of the Bengalaru Raptors team. Venus accepted not just an invitation to attend a charity gala on Thursday evening, but also to wear a typical Indian saree to walk the ramp.
The saree was a Ritu Kumar style in yellow with golden embroidered borders and a red top blouse. Her outfit was finished with a golden bangle and beautiful earrings.
The only request she made for her appearance was that a Bollywood number be played in the background! “Lovely” performed by Deepika Padukone, the well known Bollywood actress, in the movie “Happy New Year” was the choice in the end. It was a Prasad Bidapa’s decision, and the fashion guru and his team had to make a choice after Venus’ insistence.
The resulting spectacle was fabulous, because of the spirit of initiative shown by Venus and for showing some dance moves from Deepika’s notes!
