Bollywood’s ‘Desi Girl’ bedazzled the crowds gathered at the Marrakesh International Film Festival as she attended the event in a gorgeous shimmery saree. Staying true to her Indian heritage, the beauty had all eyes on her when she stepped onto the red carpet in the elegant yet sexy golden number with sequin detailing. Ditching the usual saree blouse, PeeCee opted for a tube top that only accentuated her look and added an oomph factor to the look.
