What actors wear in movies often becomes a huge fashion trend that is followed by fans even years after the movie is released. These outfits become iconic and synonymous with the character that you can’t help but steal for yourself. movies like Hum Aapke Hain Koun gave major wedding wardrobe goals, while more recent movies like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani made us travel outfit inspiration.
However, looking at these costumes, we realize that some of them actually didn’t make sense. Whether they were mistaken for the weather or simply weird When it comes to the characters the actors used to play, some of the most iconic outfits from Bollywood movies now make us question the style of the film.
Here are five of those iconic Bollywood costumes that were just plain unnecessary.
Raj Aryan’s sweater look (Mohabbatein)
Shah Rukh Khan’s look in Mohabbatian became so famous that everyone copied it for Bollywood theme parties and fancy dress. However, take a moment to think, who would just buy a nice sweater to hang over their shoulder all the time? We don’t see Raj Aryan wearing the sweater once in the whole movie and that’s pretty weird.
Deepika wears dresses in Manali (YJHD)
We understood. In the world of Bollywood, actresses are fearless. However, we don’t expect this from a millennial film in the 21st century, especially when the second female lead, Kalki, is wrapped in a jacket and a muffler. Why does DP wander the streets in a midi dress and a light cardigan?
Heavy Bandhgala by Narayan Shankar (Mohabbatein)
Another gem of Mohabbatein, the director of Gurukul, Narayan Shankar only wears the same heavy black bandhgala kurta with jacket every day in school, parties and everywhere else I guess. When he’s not wearing that, he wears a white kurta and a shawl. We understand that he is strict but the man must have other clothes.
Krrish’s wardrobe before he got his superhero costume (krish)
Hritik Roshan has a very questionable wardrobe before becoming the superhero Krrish. He lives in a small mountain village where everyone dresses normally except him. He wears sleeveless V-neck wrap shirts with Aladdin pants and a thin stole. If his grandmother wanted to keep him hidden, she should have gotten him normal clothes to blend in with other people who dress normally.
Prem’s obsession with suspenders (Hum Aapke Hain Koun…!)
Salman Khan‘s character, Prem, was so obsessed with suspenders in this film that he even wore a pair in the portrayal his older brother painted him. He wears them in the office, at home and at family gatherings.
Someone should have told him it doesn’t look as flattering as he thinks. Also, why is Nisha all dressed up late at home? Either way, the film’s wardrobe was a big hit.
