5 Iconic Outfits From Bollywood Movies That Were Actually Pretty Dumb & Made No Sense

What actors wear in movies often becomes a huge fashion trend that is followed by the fans even years after the release of the film. These outfits become iconic and synonymous to the character that we can’t help but steal for ourselves. Movies like Hum Aapke Hain Koun gave major wedding wardrobe goals, while newer films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani gave us travel outfit inspirations

However, looking back at these costumes, we realise some of them actually didn’t make sense. Whether they were wrong for the weather or simply weird in terms of the characters the actors were playing, some of the most iconic outfits in Bollywood movies now make us question the styling in the film.

Here are five such iconic Bollywood costumes that were simply pointless.  

Raj Aryan’s Pullover Look (Mohabbatein)

Shah Rukh Khan’s look in Mohabbatien got so famous that everyone copied it for Bollywood themed-parties and fancy dresses. However, take a moment to think, who would just buy a nice sweater to hang it over his shoulder all the time? We don’t see Raj Aryan wearing the pullover even once in the entire movie and this is pretty strange.

We get it. In the Bollywood world, actresses don’t feel cold. However, we don’t expect this from a millennial movie in the 21st century, especially when the second female lead, Kalki, is packed in a jacket and a muffler. Why is DP strolling the streets in a knee-length dress and a light cardigan?    

Narayan Shankar’s Heavy Bandhgala (Mohabbatein)

Another gem from Mohabbatein, the principal of Gurukul, Narayan Shankar only wears the same black heavy bandhgala kurta with a jacket every day to school, to parties and everywhere else I am guessing. When he is not wearing that, he is wearing a stark white kurta and a shawl. We get that he is strict but the man’s gotta have other clothes.     

Krrish’s Wardrobe Before He Got His Superhero Costume (Krrish)

Hritik Roshan has a very questionable wardrobe before he becomes the superhero Krrish. He lives in a small village in the mountains where everyone dresses normally but him. He wears sleeveless, V-neck wrap-around shirts with Aladdin pants and a thin stole. If his grandma wanted to keep him hidden, she should have gotten him normal clothes to blend with other normal-dressing people.  

Prem’s Obsession With Suspenders (Hum Aapke Hain Koun…!)

Salman Khan’s character Prem was so obsessed with suspenders in this movie that he is even wearing a pair in the portrait his elder brother makes for him. He wears them to the office, at home and at family functions.

Someone should have told him it doesn’t look as flattering as he thinks. Also, why is Nisha all dressed up late at night at home? Anyway, the wardrobe from the movie was a major hit.
