Ayushmann Khurrana is the latest celeb to join the #SareeTwitter bandwagon, submitting an unexpected, hilarious entry on Wednesday.
The 34-year-old tweeted a picture of himself from the set of his forthcoming film Dream Girl. In it, he is sitting on a scooter wearing a white t-shirt, blue saree and Hawaii slippers. Holding one end of the saree in his mouth, he gives a bemused expression. Sharing the picture, he wrote, “#Dreamgirl later this this year. Sigh. #SareeTwitter.”

Written and directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, Dream Girl will reportedly have Ayushmann’s character wear sarees. Produced by Ekta Kapoor, it will also star Nushrat Bharucha in an important role.
Meanwhile, #SareeTwitter is growing ever so popular on the micro-blogging site, with several personalities, including Sonam Kapoor, Shabana Azmi, Yami Gautam, Gul Panag, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Barkha Dutt, taking to it.
Sharing two pictures of her draped in a saree when she was a kid and now as a grown-up, Sonam wrote, “#SareeTwitter before and after.”

And as always Amul—which is known for creating topical cartoon strips—did not miss out either. Legitimising the trend, in the new ad, it has Amul girl draped in three different styles of sarees, with text “Saree duniya dekh rakhi hai! Amul: Have it with wraps!”
