“This year also I plan to empty my purse while I get back home from here,” she said.
She said over the last few years she has been a regular to the exhibition, but ‘always came little late’. And hence, she didn’t get to see the full range of crafts on display.
“This year luckily I got the opportunity to be here at the first day itself and I am very excited for that,” the actor said.
One of the product manufacturers and ornamentalist by profession, Manas Gharai, whose items are being displayed, said: “This year’ is significant to me as I have launched a special type of collection named as Pathachitra. It is a combination of real ‘pathacharita’ along with silver and various stones to give it a contemporary look.”
Other than exclusive collections, the exhibition-cum-sale offers customers a wide range of daily-use items, like saree, lifestyle materials, jute bags and leather bags.
The exhibition will be over on April 9.
