Do Punjabi women never wear saris in India?

OK, so this issue hasn't really been confined to recent episodes (as we have seen in the past, Mona was and is stil allowed to wear her traditional punjabi garb in the Gandhi household), but what I don't get is why in a recent episode, Sweety was a little apprhenesive towards getting a sari as a gift.

Now, I know punjabi women (as well as in Punjab) most of the women (even Hindu Punjabi women) prefer and wear kameez etc but from this show, it appears as if the women do not have any inkling or desire to ever wear a sari and hence gifting a sari was the wrong idea. Is this true for Punjabi families? apologies for the question or sounding a little ignorant, I just find it a little odd over this whole issue of getting a sari because as an overseas born desi, all of the sikh women I know here like wearing saris just as much as they like wearing their traditional punjabi suit pants.

I don't get it either, I find this show sometimes a little too stereotypical!

It's ofcourse exaggerated in the show, u know from what I have seen women in Punjab usually women wear punjabi suits in daily basis and sarees are worn in parties and stuff.

Im a punjabi hindu and in our families, on weddings, women prefer to wear sari's. They're much more formal than a salwar-kameez.

I don't understand the stereotypes in this show

Hetal wore a salwaar kameez everyday, but after marriage she will wear a sari and stick to her strict gujrati traditions and upbrining?
That was just silly

punjabi's don't wear sari's often, maybe in parties and that is about it. Even that is not always the case because since we don't wear them often, we don't know how to tie sari and stuff and aren't comfortable with it. So some people like me would not want to be gifted a sari.

I hate to say this but I would have pulled a sweety and said I didn't like the sari because if me and hetal were gonna live in same house, i didn't want the guilt of never wearing her present or giving it away. I would have been honest like sweety was.

Loll. It's just a show. They always need one thing or another to create some kind of drama and excuse to keep the distance between families cuz if everything was happy and sweetie took the the sari then there would be no problem, and if Mona wore a sari already then there wouldn't have Been the big issue with amba ji about learning how to wear a sari, it's just the same for how hetal reacts to the onion in the food scene. Gotta keep the show going you know,
