Saree fall bride speaks out!

Our attempt was merely to create a new Guinness World Record for the longest saree fall and not to inconvenience school children, said the bride involved in the incident, Sajini Suraweera.

Speaking to us on the phone she said, she had no idea it would become such an issue that these school children were used to hold up the saree fall.

She said although a huge campaign was launched on social media, she and her family had not done anything to cause any harm or discomfort to the children.

She further said that the decision to involve school children in her wedding ceremony was an idea brought by the bridal and saree artiste.

She added that the children were provided food and drinks at all times and were well looked after.

Sajini denied the social media allegations that the children were kept in the sun for hours adding that the malicious social media campaign had tried to make it look like the children were harassed.
