Lehraake balkhaake, balkhaake lehraake
Aag laga ke,
Dilo ko jala ke,
Karoon main ishaara,
Sharara sharara, sharara sharara, sharara sharara,
Main hoon ek sharara…
The hit song Sharara Sharara needs a remake ‘coz Bollywood is obsessed with the desi wide-legged style all over again. Whether it’s Shamita Shetty’s black sharara in this song or Kareena Kapoor’s pink one in Bole Chudiyan, all that jazz is back and how.
Sharara is a pair of wide-legged pants in an Indian-Pakistani style. It has beautiful pleats that start at the knees which flare as they reach the hemline. Here are your fave Bollywood celebs and their newfound sharara and gharara (ghagra style sharara which is relatively loose and ruched at the knees) obsession for us to take note of this wedding, festive or party season.
1. Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone in this stunning Sabyasachi outfit is how we want to look like at the next wedding we attend. With a short sequins embroidered kurti and matching dupatta with a thick border, this sharara suit set is heavy on style and light in weight. Glam up with your boldest earrings and eye makeup for the win.
2. Shilpa Shetty Kundra
Shilpa Shetty‘s Iftaar look is making us want to celebrate Eid all over again, thanks to the Simar Dugal label that she’s wearing. The beautiful black and golden gharara set with a contrasting pink piping are festive goals. Accessorize with statement studs and tie your hair up into a sleek bun for a non-OTT look.

3. Karisma Kapoor
If we could, we would wear Karisma Kapoor‘s casual yet stylish sharara suit set everyday and everywhere. In a dRzya by Ridhi ensemble, the pale yellow colour with dainty gotta-patti work and that floral printed white dupatta with matching potli bag is simple, yet anything but basic. Take a cue from Karisma and up your ante with a coloured bindi.

4. Kareena Kapoor
A throwback to Kareena Kapoor’s Diwali outfit from last year, when this gorgeous Tarun Tahiliani number made her look like the royal begum that she is. All she needed was a no-makeup look and kohl-rimmed eyes to light up the celebrations. When wearing pastel shades, go for coloured jewellery sets to complete your look, just like Bebo.
5. Dia Mirza
Dia Mirza in her Monika Nidhii outfit made Eid more lit than even the moon could. Notice how the actress chose to break the pale blue monotony with bright red juttis and equally bright red lips, all this matching the tassels on her dupatta. Now all you need is a pair of jhumkas and you’re celeb-ready!

When you’re not in a traditional suit kind of mood, Tamannah Bhatia’s solid sharara with a print overdose on the tunic is what you can wear. Make looking basic anything but that in Tamannah style. Take a cue from her Sonali Mittal ensemble, add some minimal jhumkas and a pinkish-nude lipper to complete your desi fusion look.

Esha Gupta and her Ranian couture ain’t too far behind from the festivities and it came with a silver lining, quite literally. Here we see the colour grey in a whole new light. When going for dull shades like this, go for a bright colour combination like mustard yellow to make your outfit as lit as the 4th of July. And if you need help, here are all the colours perfect for the dusky girl.
