NOW, RADHE MAA KITTY PARTIES!
The infamous sadhvi is in the spotlight again for inspiring kitty party themes, makeovers and makeup trends
Aself-proclaimed godwoman would be an unlikely inspiration for kitty party themes, but that’s exactly what’s happening with the much controversial Radhe Maa. With an unverified picture (above) of a group of women partying and posing as Radhe Maa — dressed in red, sporting tilak on the foreheads and holding trishul — going viral on the internet, the spotlight is back on the godwoman who’s currently incommunicado. Her infamy, however, has led to event managers getting queries on the theme. “Most party themes are predictable. A Radhe Maa party seemed so cool. People are doing it just for laughs,” says Dolly Gupta, a city-based event manager. The 45-yearold sadhvi has always been on-trend. As reported first by HT City in 2012, she only wears couture, and never repeats an outfit. As quoted in the story, Delhi designer Kapil Arora, who designed clothes for her, said that each outfit costs up to R 5lakh, and she wears them once, before giving them away to devotees. The sadhvi has also inspired Dubsmash videos by users who have given themselves a Radhe Maa makeover. While one video by user Umesh Poddar shows him grooving on the song Radha likes to Party, another video shows Radhe Maa holding diapers and a milk bottle in her hand, saying she is pure and pious – a quote of hers that went viral too. There’s Radhe Maa-inspired nail art and makeup too! “Radhe Maa has become a fad now, why won’t she spur makeup trends? Red nails with diamonds, paired with pink cheeks make for the perfect makeover for fans,” says beautician Kanchan Mehra.
