Alia Bhatt wore a sapphire-diamond necklace and rings worth Rs 20 crore at Hope Gala in London; see here!


Alia Bhatt recently organized her first charity event in London. The actress hosted the "Hope Gala" on Thursday evening to raise funds for underprivileged teenagers in India through Salaam Bombay Foundation. Many well-known personalities participated in this program.

Alia attended the event in a stunning ivory saree by designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. According to the designer's Instagram caption, the six-yard drape in the antique ivory shade was created in 1994. The silhouette featured skilled silkwork, embroidered with floral silk threads. Alia's two looks from the night - a white saree and a wine gown - grabbed attention. The actress also wore a large blue sapphire and diamond necklace with her beautiful gown. Alia wore a Bulgari necklace and a matching sapphire ring. These are from the Italian brand's 2020 Baroque collection and are priced around Rs 20 crore.

Everyone will have a question as to why it is so expensive. The answer lies in the detailing of Bulgari's necklace. It contains a 28.11-carat exquisite sapphire with 381 brilliant diamonds. It took a total of 700 man-hours to build it.

Hours after hosting the ceremony, Alia took to Instagram to share glimpses of the important event. She also released an adorable video in which she can be seen singing the song 'Ik Kuddi' with Harshdeep Kaur. Apart from musician Harshdeep Kaur, comedian Rohan Joshi and director Gurinder Chadha were also present there.

Talking about the work front, Alia will be seen in her home production film Jigra. The film is directed by Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota director Vasan Bala. Jigra will be released in theatres in September 2024.
