Jaya sported a salmon pink sari by Nachiket Barve. It featured delicate embroidery in the same color which gave the outfit an ethereal feel. In a bid to ward off the cold, she draped a striped red and salmon pink shawl around her shoulders.
The matriarch accessorized simply with a pearl pendant on a thin chain and elegant danglers. He styling was even simpler – salt and pepper hair swept back into a simple bun and very natural makeup.
