Mumtaz was a veteran Bollywood actress who popularized a unique way of draping the saree. This way of draping goes well with chiffon sarees with preferably evident borders. You might want to experiment with other lighter and flexible fabrics. This style of draping is more of a sexier version of the saree, it exposes ample amount of midriff. Make sure you are comfortable with it before your event. Hence, practice draping it beforehand.
