Beyond being the quintessential actress of her era, she seamlessly transitioned through roles, contributing to contemporary commercial successes like English Vinglish. While her most recent role may be noteworthy, it's her unforgettable appearance in the blockbuster Mr. India that remains etched in memory.
In the iconic 'Kaate Nahi Kat Te' song, Sridevi dazzled the screen in a stunning blue chiffon saree.

Rekha in Silsila


Rekha, a timeless beauty, has been captivating hearts for over five decades in the industry. Throughout her illustrious career, she has consistently redefined fashion in India, earning her status as a perpetual style icon. Her iconic saree-clad appearance in Silsila remains etched in memory.

In the film, Rekha graced the screen in a series of silky, flowing chiffon sarees, showcasing her diverse fashion sense. However, it is her striking red saree that stands out and has become synonymous with her bold and iconic style. This daring look during its time inspired women across the country to embrace sleeveless blouses, accentuating the body with a form-fitting drape, a departure from the traditional loose and generic styles.

In an era when the Indian elite was embracing modern Western fashion trends, Rekha played a pivotal role in popularizing the high-society saree-clad look. Films like Silsila showcased her ability to make the saree a bold fashion statement, breaking away from its perception as a modest garment for the masses. Through her influential on-screen appearances, Rekha contributed significantly to elevating the saree's status as a symbol of fashion sophistication.

 Priyanka Chopra in Dostana

Priyanka Chopra has emerged as a global ambassador for Indian fashion and representation on the world stage. Before making her mark in Western entertainment, she initiated efforts to bring Indian culture back into mainstream consciousness. One defining moment was her unforgettable off-white saree from Dostana, which not only reintroduced the saree as a powerful fashion statement in Bollywood but also set the stage for her international representation of India.

In her role as the quintessential 'Desi Girl,' Priyanka earned this title by making the saree undeniably sexy. Wearing a champagne-hued six-yard wonder at a Miami nightclub, she paired it with a bikini blouse, scorching the screens and bringing back a sense of minimalism to on-screen saree representations. This bold move countered a period where ultra-elaborate outfits had become the norm, showcasing Priyanka Chopra's influence in merging tradition with modernity.

From her impactful forays in Western music, TV shows, and movies to her early contributions to reshaping perceptions of Indian fashion in Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra continues to be a trailblazer in projecting India's cultural richness globally.

The film's massive commercial success marked a significant transformation for Deepika, evolving from a nerdy and reserved character to a glamorous diva.

A defining moment in this evolution was when Deepika adorned a dark blue georgette saree in the song. The saree, low draped and paired with a bold low-cut black blouse, became a visual spectacle. The black sequins on the blouse and the shimmering gold ones on the sleek border bedazzled audiences across India. This super glam avatar redefined the perception of sarees, making them a trendy and fashionable choice for chic parties rather than being limited to traditional or festive gatherings.
