A few weeks ago, Sanya Malhotra was clicked wearing a jumpsuit and was called out on social media for wearing a ‘copy’ of an international label. Sanya wore a tan jumpsuit by Madison during the promotions of her movie, Photograph. The original dress, designed by Sheike and Co, was spotted on Erin Holland (Miss World Australia). The Dangal actress was trolled by Diet Sabya – an account popular for fashion policing – on Instagram for wearing a copy.
In a recent interview when Sanya was asked if she was more fashion conscious now, the actress replied, “I was excited to get featured there. I respect what they [Diet Sabya] are doing, calling out people who copy styles but we also need to keep in mind that there are many fast fashion brands that don’t have a particular designer.”
The 27-year-old actress confessed that she has likes wearing nice clothes, but she never gets competitive when it comes to dressing up. “I like wearing nice clothes and dressing up. At the same time, I know that I can’t be perfect all the time. Actors don’t have to be conscious all the time or up their game when it comes to fashion. Personally, I am a very laid-back and lazy person. I have tried a lot… to be perfect all the time. It doesn’t suit me. It doesn’t make me happy and I do things that make me happy.”
Sanya further revealed that she likes to wear clothes that make her feel comfortable. “I am a very moody person. So if I am in a mood, I will dress up and wear heels. If I am not in a mood, I really don’t care if people judge me on social media. I can’t go about telling everyone that ‘don’t do it’. Everyone has an opinion,” said the actress.
When Sanya was asked if she was okay with repeating clothes she said, “Listen, clothes are very expensive. I don’t mind repeating clothes at all. It’s pretty normal. I feel glad that I have a team of great stylists who dress me up. They don’t let me repeat clothes. But personally, whenever I go out I don’t mind repeating clothes because clothes are very expensive.”
“I am trying not to buy fast fashion brands and switch to sustainable fashion. Sustainable clothes are damn expensive. Itna budget nahi hai. I have to do a lot of stuff. I live alone in Mumbai,” added the Gargi College alumnus whose family resides in Delhi.
She isn’t the only actress who has spoken up about repeating clothes. A few weeks ago, Janhvi Kapoor was also trolled for the same reason and her response was badass.
