Los Angeles, April 4: American actress Mindy Kaling, whose parents are from India, is planning to embrace her Indian heritage and wear sari at her next red carpet event. She feels the the outfit is "alluring without being too revealing".
"The Mindy Project" star, who hit the headlines last week for wearing a jacquard Topshop crop top and matching skirt on the red carpet, says the controversial look inspired her to go for sari.
"To me, when Indian women wear saris there's a little patch of skin that many women can (show off) without feeling self-conscious. It's alluring without being too revealing. I don't have like a six-pack or anything but I can wear it and show it off," people.com quoted Kaling as saying.
"And I liked that even though that wasn't an Indian inspired outfit at all, that sort of revealed that same sort of patch of skin that Indian women do traditionally all the time. It made me want to wear a sari, actually," added the curvy actress.
