Actor Sonakshi Sinha, who has flaunted a desi, sari-clad look in most of her films, said she was fascinated by the six-yard wrap even as a kid.

“I was very young when I started wearing my mom’s saris. I always saw her in saris and used to drape her pallu. The sari is the most graceful garment,” said the 26-year-old during a photo-shoot for a sari brand.

Sonakshi’s debut film Dabangg featured her in simple saris, but she admitted she doesn’t really know how to drape it. “I have been wearing a sari since my very first film, but I’ve never actually done it myself. But I’ve done it so many times now that I can imagine the whole process and I believe I can drape it, even though I haven’t tried it yet,” said 26-year-old actor.

“I have always been complimented for carrying off a sari very well. That’s nice because of the misconception that mature women are supposed to wear saris,” smiled Sonakshi.
