What has caught the attention of many is the relation between the summit and the Telugu film industry, which is quite an interesting one. Actors Ram Charan and Lakshmi Manchu will address the entrepreneurship panel which will include Ivanka Trump too. As reported by Pinkvilla, Ivanka will be receiving a gift from none other the new bride and actress Samantha Akkineni. The Telangana Government has planned to give Ivanka something priceless – handloom sarees.
According to latest reports, Samantha will herself pick a Gollabhama saree which is popular for its weaving style and is found majorly in Siddipet region in Telangana state. The Gollabhama saree style is more than 50 years old and is very popular for the inlay work by the handloom weavers from Siddipet region. It is not clear yet if Samantha Akkineni will herself present the gift to Ivanka Trump during her stay here for GES 2017.
