Priyanka Gandhi joins SareeTwitter
Tens of thousands of people liked the photograph within hours that showed Priyanka Gandhi draped in a pink Banarasi saree
The #SareeTwitter trend that has been viral for the past couple of days got a huge boost on Wednesday after Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra shared a throwback picture from her wedding day.
Tens of thousands of people liked the photograph within hours that showed Priyanka Gandhi draped in a pink Banarasi saree.
"Morning puja on the day of my wedding (22 years ago!) #SareeTwitter," read the caption of the photograph from the 47-year-old granddaughter of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
Even though she mentioned #SareeTwitter, many users mistook the day for her wedding anniversary and started wishing her happiness.
"Happy wedding anniversary @priyankagandhi stay blessed...I always trolled u but today No. Be happy always," wrote one user.
But Priyanka Gandhi soon clarified that her anniversary falls in February and the post was just for #SareeTwitter.
Thanks for all the anniversary wishes...but it's just a throwback photo for the #SareeTwitter guys, my anniv is in Feb!— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) July 17, 2019
Thanks for all the anniversary wishes...but it's just a throwback photo for the #SareeTwitter guys, my anniv is in Feb," she tweeted.
Wow !! Nice pic, you look the same for me each day.— Robert Vadra (@irobertvadra) July 17, 2019
Love, happiness, support is the foundation of our being... love you lots.😍 @priyankagandhi pic.twitter.com/tEs2poImGr
"@irobertvadra, you can still take me out for dinner," she said in another tweet addressed to her husband Robert Vadra.
The wink emoji at the end of the tweet revealed the lighter side of the Congress heavyweight.
The #SareeTwitter trend that began on Monday has already charmed India, generating posts from political leaders, film actresses, journalists and women.
Australian High Commissioner to India Harinder Sidhu also shared a saree picture on Tuesday.
Now that @MaryKayCarlson has left Delhi, I am stepping up for my diplomatic sisters on #SareeTwitter. This saree was part of my Mum's wedding trousseau. Yes, it's older than me! 😊 pic.twitter.com/Zi71zMFIRS— Harinder Sidhu (@AusHCIndia) July 16, 2019

Did somebody say #sareetwitter? pic.twitter.com/ucPnN7JPPw— Katherine Hadda (@USCGHyderabad) July 16, 2019
Yes, it's older than me," Sidhu wrote in the caption of the picture. The U.S. Consul General in Hyderabad, Katherine Hadda, also flaunted her pictures draped in beautiful sarees.
And if you thought only women from India and abroad are posting their #SareeTwitter pictures, that is not entirely true.
Actor Ayushmann Khurrana joined the #SareeTwitter bandwagon by posting a picture of himself in a saree.
The post revealed a still from his upcoming film "Dream Girl".
#Dreamgirl later this this year. Sigh. #SareeTwitter pic.twitter.com/wqpoJrRNW9— Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) July 17, 2019
"#Dreamgirl later this this year. Sigh. #SareeTwitter," read the caption of the post.
