Indian Cinema

Remember Madhubala in her narrow churidar and voluminous upper kameez in “Pyaar kiya to darna kya” in the magnum opus Mughal-e-Azam? The outfit is in your closet now as a favorite Anarkali suit! Waheeda in her saris turned heads in Guide. Closer to time, it was Kajol’s turn to become a trendsetter with her attire in the all-time hit Dilwale . . . And who can forget Vidya Balan who has never hesitated to flaunt her Indian roots in an absolutely stunning range of handwoven saris at all her off-screen appearances. Shekhar Kapur, Mira Nair and Amitabh Bachchan are a few other names indelibly linked with the hall of Indian ethnic fashion.
