Band Baaja Bride enters its fourth season and Sabyasachi Mukherjee, who has been with the show for the last two seasons, tells us why we should tune in. The Kolkata-based designer, famous for his bridal wear, insists that the reality show has evolved. a�?Over the years we have had couples considering second marriages, people with different outlooks and from different backgroundsa��religious and economic,a�? he says, admitting that the role of styling brides isna��t alien to him. However, sometimes the outfits take months to create and getting brides to agree to a look can be challenging.
After meeting brides from different backgrounds, does he feel the need to start an affordable line? a�?A lot of my work finds itself in the a�?copy marketa��. So we try identifying with a lot of those and try pricing the originals accordingly so that they are affordable.a�?A� As for bridal trends, he insists, a�?Your bridal garment has to be timeless. Your wedding pictures will stay with you for a very long time. I would say, opt for something with golden embroidery a�� colours like antique gold and champagne gold are very popular. Among colours, I feel one should stick to red or orange. Other popular colours include rani pink and haldi yellow.a�?
Mukherjee, who no longer has time for TV, says he enjoys shows like Friends and How I Met Your Mother, but hea��ll a�?always remember Anita Kanwar as Lajoji in Buniyaad and Neena Gupta as Ketki in Khandaan.a�?
