.So Why did she ran in a Sari?
In an interview by Deccan chronicle, Jayanthi mentioned that she wanted to promote Handloom and encourage women. She said, This is a statement of my support. I am a cyclist and ride very often, and notice a lot of plastic pollution happening around us. I am keen to curb that and want to use this platform to oppose it. For that, maybe I should run in a sari made of plastic wrappers people throw,”.
