Sharing a picture of famous international icon Oprah Winfrey draped in a black saree for the cover of a magazine, he recalled his encounter with her. Remembering how once when she had come to India for a royal dinner at Jaipur, he had the good fortune to styling her. He added that he also got to interact with her briefly where the discussed spirituality, Indian mystic arts and handicrafts. It seems he had casually dropped that he is opening a new store in Mumbai to which she replied that she would visit it. And much to his and our surprise, she actually did! It goes to show how humble and down to Earth she really is in spite of being one of the most famous figures on TV. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Oprah Winfrey (@oprah) in Sabyasachi. Nothing prepares you for meeting Oprah in real life. Oner maiden trip to India, Oprah attended a dinner hosted by the royal family in Jaipur and I had the good fortune to dress her in a saree for it. We spent some time discussing India and spirituality, as well as Indian art and handicrafts. The opening of my store in Kala Ghoda came up in conversation and Oprah promised to swing by in the morning if she got time off from her busy schedule. I thought she was being polite! Imagine my gleeful surprise (and slight horror) when I realised I was sprawled on the floor like an exhausted starfish after completing the setup of the store, just as Oprah came breezing in, exactly at 10 AM. She was as magnanimous about it as I was mortified. . Oprah isn’t just one of the world’s most influential personalities. She’s larger than life, but also as real as it gets! So, if she says she’s coming home for pizza, you better take her word for it and keep that dinner table laid out well in time for her arrival!
