Nita Ambani wore the Hyderabadi kurta and khada dupatta inspired by the traditional Chaugoshiya. A Chaugoshiya comprises a fitted choli, a loose kurti, tight pyjamas, and a five-meter khada dupatta. It is a 150-year-old clothing style worn by Hyderabadi Muslim women during their nikah or wedding. Its origin can be traced back to the Mughal era, around the 17th century.

The Chaugoshiya also saw many modifications which the Begums of Nizam introduced. Despite the ensemble's noble origins, it transcended social barriers and became a common outfit favoured by women of different backgrounds in Hyderabad. The sartorial style has been passed down many generations, never losing its original elegance and proving that traditions never go out of fashion.

Manish Malhotra dressed Nita Ambani in an antique gold ensemble inspired by the Chaugoshiya.
