Bride Lakshmi Ambarish accused The House of Angadi for hoodwinking customers by selling cheap sarees for a premium price.
The House of Angadi is accused of selling substandard wedding sarees for a premium price by a newly wedded bride, Lakshmi Ambarish, who purchased 50 wedding sarees before the pandemic and had to postpone her wedding due to the lockdowns.
Lakshmi revealed in an Instagram post that she preserved two sarees, one for Muhurtham and the other for Vaarapooje in the best way possible and regularly kept a check on it imagining about her big day. Just eight months down the line, the expensive sarees decoloured, looked old and pale and that is when the bride realized that she has been scammed off her money.
The House of Angadi had claimed during the purchase that the weave is one-of-a-kind and would never be weaved again, making her the first and foremost bride to be wearing it and charged her a premium. However, the one-of-a-kind weave could not stand the test of time for just eight months and decoloured. Lakshmi did not reveal the amount she shelled out for the sarees.
The bride revealed she took the sarees to the store on December 11, 2020 and was assured by the manager that the sarees would be fixed. Despite multiple follow ups on calls, mails and personal visit to the store and just 20 days prior to her wedding day, she was called to the store to collect her sarees.

Lakshmi, who felt enthusiastic that her sarees are back to their previous glory, rushed to the store only to find out that the sarees still remain the same and the staff went out of their way in convincing her that the issue has been fixed and they look as good as day.
When the bride confronted them saying the sarees are still the same, the staff members stopped being courteous and began speaking in an arrogant voice hinting- take it or leave it. That is when she realized she couldn’t handle the stress anymore and straight away walked out of the store with tears in her eyes as her dream wedding was shattered.
Luckily, Lakshmi revealed that she contacted Hyderabad based Gaurang Shah, who promised to deliver her the best of sarees in the nick of time and stood by his promise weaving a saree that stands class apart and doesn’t come nowhere close to The House of Angadi’s products.
Lakshmi Ambarish, tied the knot to the love of her life and shared her wedding pictures and the sarees on her Instagram handle praising Gaurang Shah for making her wedding memorable.
The bride has decided to initiate legal action against The House of Angadi for selling substandard products for exorbitant prices and putting her through mental agony during her wedding. The News Pit contacted The House of Angadi during the time of publishing to hear their side of the story and get their official statement but have not responded yet.
