"I have always enjoyed the way a saree falls on my body. It has been widely considered a feminine garment, but I never put it like that. I just wore it because I felt great wearing it," Verma told BuzzFeed.

"I have never worn them to make a statement, but it certainly would help to change the mindset that it is only for women. It is for everyone," Verma explained.
