Hit Hai! 9 Iconic Indian Movie Outfits That Will Always Live Rent Free In Our Hearts

We treasure certain films more than others because they have a lasting impact. Be it the story or moving dialogues, there is a part of these movies that remains with us for a long time to come. For us at POPxo Fashion, it is the stylish looks from these films that happen to be the major preoccupation. When steller enough, these looks find a coveted space in our bookmark folder and fashion-crazed minds. In fact, remember how Kavya (Alia Bhatt) in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania declared that she wants nothing but a Manish Malhotra lehenga for her wedding? Such is the impact of iconic film costumes. Not only do we cherish them but also dream of recreating them at some point in our lives. Today, we are talking about nine such outfits and how they’d never be too old or boring to recreate. Read on: 

Kareena Kapoor’s Sharara From Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham 

YouTube

Kareena Kapoor’s character from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham remains one of the most iconic movie characters to date. Poo taught girls to be unabashedly themselves and to not give two hoots about others’ opinions. The attitude reflected in her wardrobe as well. Now, as much as we loved her glitter red co-ord set from Jabse Tumko Dekha, it is her peach sharara-crop top pairing from Bole Chudiyan that remains the hero outfit for us. It was rad then. It is rad now!

Anushka Sharma’s Chikankari Kurta From Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

Everyone noticed Alizeh’s (Anushka Sharma) fresh denim and chikankari pairing in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and everyone wanted a piece of that sartorial goodness. We still do. Top on our wishlist is her mango yellow kurta that she very nonchalantly paired with denim and boots. Queen!

Alia Bhatt’s Silk Saree From Two States

Not only did Alia Bhatt impress us with her non-stereotypical representation of a South Indian character in Two States but also with her stellar wardrobe. Kanchipuram sarees in delicious contracts were an integral part of her arsenal and it was a turquoise-magenta-yellow beauty that specifically caught our eye.

Deepika Padukone’s Show Stopping Minis From Cocktail

Firstly, let’s be clear that we will always be #TeamVeronica! Seriously, anybody who could notice anything in the film apart from Deepika Padukone’s showstopping outfits literally hates fashion. Each one of her fits was just that standout and not gonna lie, we’d happily die for Veronica’s wardrobe provided we are promised that we get to raid it in heaven (or hell, everything works).

Deepika Padukone’s Colour-Pop Lehenga From Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

YouTube

While Deepika Padukone’s blue saree from the song Badtameez Dil became a raging hot obsession after YJHD’s release, for us it is her colour contrast fits that reign supreme. A mention of the film and the mind straight goes to Naina’s pink, peach, and yellow lehenga from the mehendi ceremony. It was risque, it was fun, it was vibrant. Need we say more?

Sonam Kapoor’s Tweed Suit From Aisha

Aisha was the first film where an Indian actress donned a vintage Chanel tweed suit and guess, we won’t ever get over Sonam Kapoor’s glorious green look. Rest assured, this look is never getting out of style. Iconic!

Preity Zinta’s Cyan Lehenga From Kal Ho Na Ho

YouTube

Anyone who says that they don’t remember Naina’s (Preity Zinta) cyan and beige lehenga from Kal Ho Na Ho, didn’t really watch the film. With gorgeous blue handwork playing on the neutral beige base, Manish Malhotra really did create a masterpiece with the outfit.

Sushmita Sen’s Orange Saree From Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya

YouTube

It has been a decade and a half since the release of Salman Khan, Sushmita Sen, and Katrina Kaif starrer Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya. While we might have forgotten most of the film, Sushmita’s orange saree from the song Laga Laga Laga Re still remains fresh in our minds. From the ombre hue to the sequinned borders, nothing about this saree gets old. If anything, we just caught a look and want to wear it all over again.  

Aishwarya’s Lavendar Lehenga From Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

YouTube

Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was a film made with immense love and it showed in each and every detail. The most stand out of these details for us? Aishwarya Rai’s lavender lehenga and Swarovski studded dupatta from the song Chand Chhupa Badal Mein. There was something ethereal about the look and it was like poetry in motion every time Aishwarya’s face showed through the gossamer dupatta. 

So fam, which one of these iconic movie outfits still lives rent-free in your mind?
