Suhana Khan praises Alia Bhatt
Suhana Khan is gearing up for her acting debut with Zoya Akhtar directed The Archies. Currently, she is busy promoting the film with her fellow cast members. A video of her from a recent media interaction has surfaced online, where she is praising Alia. In the video, Suhana says, “Alia wore her wedding saree again for the National Awards and I think as somebody with a platform, who has an influence, I thought that was incredible and a much-needed message.”
The debutante went on to add, “She did that and she took a stand towards sustainability. If Alia Bhatt can re-wear her wedding saree then we can also repeat an outfit for a party. We don’t need to buy a new outfit. We don’t realise but making new garments creates waste which impacts our biodiversity and environment. So, it’s very important.”
