Mirza took to Instagram to share a never-before-seen image of herself from her wedding to Vaibhav Rekhi back in February this year.

Have you ever witnessed our master craftsmen/women at work? It is easily one of the most spellbinding processes. The precision and fluidity with which those hands and feet move so perfectly synchronised with the rhythm of the loom creating poetry in motion…” read part of her caption.

Then she goes on to urge her audience to “come together to celebrate the culturally rich and incredible textiles of India. Let’s appreciate the hands behind the looms that work meticulously to weave the finest of the fabrics.”
