A sari is one of the most elegant Indian garments. It can be worn in many ways. One can choose a variety of fabrics, but a chiffon sari is almost everyone's favorite. However, it can be a little tricky to manage the five yards of fabric. 

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty is known for her stunning yoga body and impeccable sense of style. The actress has recently written a book on her fitness and beauty secrets, and she also has a hit yoga DVD to her credit. A budding entrepreneur and fashion designer, Shetty has also released her exclusive line through eTailer, "HomeShop18."

Chiffon saris have played an important role in Bollywood movies — veteran filmmakers, such as Yash Chopra and Karan Johar, like to dress up their heroines in this light, sexy, semi-sheer garment. The heroines are sometimes are then seen happily dancing in the snow or prancing around cool European climes in this almost sheer garment.

If you are fascinated by a sari and want to give it a shot but don't know where to start, let Shetty show you how to wear it and rock it like a true Bollywood diva.
