Marking the onset of the couture season, the issue sets the tone of Big Indian Wedding Revelry. From fashion layouts to stylists’ picks, we’ve got you covered to set the ‘wedding planning’ ball rolling.
The issue’s cover star, Kriti Sanon — an actor who made it to the top league with the massive success of her latest film, Mimi — converses with The Peacock Magazine about her journey starting her career as a model to making it to the top league. The star, who is basking in the success, also talks about how she deals with her vulnerabilities and how she takes competition positively.
