“The little black dot!
I never wanted to wear a bottu
(that’s what a bindi is called in Hyderabad) when I was little.
It’s so much a part of the southern indian tradition, it doesn’t even count as dressing up.
My mother wears a kumkum bottu made out of turmeric in the most beautiful vermillion, I used to watch her make her kumkum bottu, just that and she would glow without a spot of make up.
I’d go to dance class and wear my neat middle parted long braid with no fuss but I just did not want to wear a bottu!
It was years later when I started shooting for Kaatru veliyidai with mani sir that I got attached to this little black dot on my forehead. From the costume trials with Eka ( @ekalakhani)
To shooting in Ooty, Ladakh , Serbia, the freezing cold, my Rudolph red nose and my little black bottu.
And here it is!
My favourite little black bottu
