“I thought Sabyasachi launched his new lingerie collection, no no…that’s a mangalsutra ad. I’m so regressive, I didn’t notice,” a user tweeted. “What are you exactly advertising? No one will wear this jewellery now coz you have shown the world the if I wear that jewellery I must be some cheapo! please take care of your campaigns (sic),” another user wrote on the Instagram comments section

This is shameful Act @sabya_mukherjee
You are selling the Mangal sutra by promoting nudity & obscene content with a hashtag #intimatefinejewellerybysabyasachi
This is intentional hurting of Hindu sentiments

It's not a random piece of fashion jewellery, it indicates the love and commitment the husband and wife have towards each other. pic.twitter.com/HB3r4Aa4A4

Mangalsutra is a pious thread. It signifies the sacred union of marriage. U can do advertisement in this way,it looks really beautiful (pic-1) not in this vulgar way (pic-2). Why intolerant ones are jumping for boycott? No need tho. Dlt that ad and apologize. Enough! #Sabyasachi pic.twitter.com/m6akHGarNO
