My sister, Hemalatha is in Guajarati attire. Uma Rani is in Bengali attire. Sudhir is dressed as a long haired native of Himachal Pradesh. Usha Rani is a Vegetable vendor. Sridhar and Bablu are Civil-construction workmen. Srikanth is an American Sheriff. Srinath is dressed as a Gypsy girl. Alekhya is a School teacher and Ashwin is dressed as a Cowboy.
Very interesting Fancy costumes, representing various Indian and international subjects, don’t you think so?
