Shreya Ghoshal wears saree

A sari or saree is a strip of unstitched cloth, worn by women, ranging from four to nine yards in length that is draped over the body in various styles which is native to the Indian Subcontinent. The word sari is derived from Sanskrit शाटी śāṭī which means ‘strip of cloth’ and शाडी śāḍī or साडी sāḍī in Prakrit, and which was corrupted to sāṛī in Hindi. The word ‘Sattika’ is mentioned as describing women’s attire in ancient India in Buddhist Jain literature called Jatakas. This could be equivalent to modern day ‘Sari’. The term for female bodice, the choli is derived from another ruling clan from south, the Cholas. Rajatarangini (meaning the ‘river of kings’), a tenth century literary work by Kalhana, states that the Choli from the Deccan was introduced under the royal order in Kashmir. The concept of Pallava, the end piece in the sari, originated during the Pallavas period and named after the Pallavas, another ruling clan of Ancient Tamilakam
