FASHIONISTA HAVEN: From Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Soha Ali Khan, a Satya Paul spells six yards of magic. So, if you want to make that ultimate statement, step into the Satya Paul retail outlet in Ranchi’s Sujata Chowk to embrace a world of whimsical chiffon, dreamy georgette and chic crepe. Don’t forget, the legend Satya Paul and his son Puneet Nanda — carrying the creative mantle with aplomb — are the toast of world fashion for combining the best of modernity and tradition in weaves and motifs
