Ace couturier and the dream designer to most Bollywood brides, including Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra, Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s origin story is straight out of Bollywood too. Since the government-mandated lockdown on account of the coronavirus pandemic has been imposed, Sabyasachi has taken to his Instagram to share anecdotes and insights into the making of the most coveted designer in India. Sabyasachi has touched topics including how coming from a family of doctors and educators, he received a lot of opposition from his family for choosing design.
He has also written about his grandmothers, paternal and maternal, and how they shaped him, his travels, his childhood and his favourite books and authors, and now, most recently his first few trysts with design and production.
In a series of post Sabyasachi wrote about tales from his childhood and how they shaped his life. One of the posts with “Where do I begin? Tales from my childhood,” were captioned, “Very early in our lives, signs appear of what our future may behold. Sometimes we take cognisance of those signs and work towards our destiny, sometimes someone else recognises our potential and pushes us towards our future.” The designer asked readers to share their childhood stories that possibly shaped their adulthood with him. Talking about the first-ever play he wrote and directed as a nine-year-old, “I was nine years old when I wrote my first script for a play — an improvised version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. I nervously showed it to my drama teacher and my life changed forever.”
