A Date with Destiny: The wedding announcement

Lin Laishram as a Manipuri bride

In this fairytale wedding, the actor cum model Lin Laishram turned into a Manipuri bride doll exuding elegance. With pinkish eye and maroon lips, she definitely knows how to carry the Potloi (Manipuri wedding dress) look. She accessorized her look with bridal featuring Manipuri ethnic jewellery.

A Manipuri bride's attire is customary at a Manipuri wedding. It's a rainbow of hues. The poloi skirt, also known as the raslila skirt, is reported to be sewed on the body. The cloth used to make the outfit is thick. It is adorned with lovely, detailed patterns. If the blouse is available in many colours, it is anticipated to be worn by the bride. The blouse's quite long sleeves fall to her waist.

What's most interesting about the bridal dress is its bottom half. The bride's lower body is surrounded by a rigid circular boundary created by the poloi skirt. It encircles her in the shape of a basket. The traditional thick cloth used to make this keeps it tight and rigid. The waist-level skirt provides the basket-like structure a distinct appearance by seamlessly joining it.

Randeep Hooda simple yet elegant ensemble

Randeep Hooda kept it simple in a crisp white attire. Looking all elegant and gorgeous, the Highway actor accessorised his look with a  white and yellow turben.

The groom from Manipur wears really basic attire. The groom wears a dhoti at the majority of Indian weddings. All it is is a sliver of unstitched fabric. Its length is around 4–5 metres, and its form is rectangular. Additionally, there is an odd method for encircling the groom's waist with the dhoti.

Along with the dhoti (Pheijom) and the kurta, Hooda adorns a turban on his head. This is a typical Indian customs. It is also common in many Indian weddings. It is nothing but a kind of headwear based on winding cloth.  Wearing a headgear during wedding ceremonies is often considered sacred. This is worn in various parts of India now. The groom accessorizes with a wrist watch, and footwear.

On the Work font, Randeep Hooda is set to portray the iconic Indian freedom fighter Vinayak Damodar Savarkar in 'Swatantra Veer Savarkar'. Additionally, fans can anticipate his on-screen chemistry with Ileana D'Cruz in 'Unfair and Lovely' and the sequel to the critically acclaimed 'Laal Rang 2'.
