Paresh Lamba designs Diganth’s D-day outfit

Kannada movie stars tie the knot on December 12, and we let you in on what they are going to wear

After Bollywood the DeepVeer extravaganza, it’s the turn of Kannada moviedom to witness the most happening wedding of the year.

The much-in-love Diganth Manchale and Aindrita Ray are tying the knot on December 12, after 10 years of courtship. The wedding will take place at Discovery Village, a resort near Nandi Hills.

Diganth visited the Paresh Lamba Signatures store on MG Road on Saturday for his final
attire fitting, and Metrolife was there too.

Choosing Lamba to design his outfit was no overnight decision: Diganth says he made it a decade ago when he was a model.      


The dress code for the wedding is pastel and white.

“I walked the ramp for Paresh a lot of times in the past, and whenever I thought of getting married, I knew I would go to him for my wedding outfit,” he says.

Diganth will wear a white cotton Lyrca kurta-pyjama and complete his look with a raw silk, block-printed Nehru jacket.

Aindrita, on the other hand, will wear an ensemble designed by Mumbai-based designer Rocky S.

“Since Aindrita is Bengali, we are having a Bengali-style wedding. In fact, my wedding outfit has a bit of Bengali influence to it. The dress code for the wedding is pastels and white, so all our friends and relatives will be seen in these colours,” says Diganth.

The couple has chosen a vegetarian menu, with the bride’s side doing the hosting.

Popular actors Sudeep, Darshan, Yash, Puneeth Rajkumar, Shivaraj Kumar and Rakshit Shetty will be part of the celebrations.

Diganth expects 300 to 400 people for the wedding, which will be followed by a cocktail party on December 15 at Bang, The Ritz-Carlton. Actors from Bollywood, such as Arbaaz Khan, are on the guest list there.

Diganth promises good music at the event. He hasn’t felt wedding jitters yet, and that’s because he has been “too busy”.

“I have seen a lot of Kannada-style weddings, so a Bengali wedding would be something new for everyone in my family. My cousins and relatives are already looking forward to the ‘ulu dhwani’ (high pitched loud vocal sound), without which a Bengali wedding is incomplete,” he says.

Working with Diganth has been smooth, says Lamba. “It took us 10 minutes to decide what he was going to wear. Aindrita and Didanth gave me a brief of what they looking for and there it was, all done,” he explains. Diganth’s conical headgear is designed in Kolkata.
