Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee reveals why he agreed to help 13 girls look their best on their wedding day
After dressing up socialites and Bollywood celebrities, designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee will now make the common woman’s dreams come true. He will help brides look beautiful on the NDTV Good Times’ TV show Band Baajaa Bride With Sabyasachi. This is the second season of the show but he will be on it for the first time. The 37-year-old is the designer is candid enough to admit why he agreed to makeover 13 girls into bridal divas. “This is the first time I am doing a full-fledged television show. I took this opportunity as I feel the show will give me a chance to dress up brides from all over India, from different communities, religions and economic backgrounds. Also keeping in mind the bridal season, it is an apt time to be the part of a show which is entirely dedicated to bridal wear,” Sabyasachi told IANS.
He also added that it wasn’t difficult facing the camera due to his previous experiences in giving interviews, but what really caught his interest about the show were his clients. “We designers always get the chance to design for high-end celebrities, socialities and models but Band Baaja… will give me a chance to connect with untapped market, which always aspires to wear our creations but never did so because of high prices and limited designs. It will be little bit of reality check for me to know about these girls and their mindsets.”
Band Baajaa Bride With Sabyasachi will premiere on February 10 at 9.30pm on NDTV Good Times.
