7 Best Costumes In Bollywood Songs

Team FC

Aaj Kal Tere Mere Pyaar Ke Charche - Brahmachari (1968)

Mumtaz's orange sari was a complete flip on the traditional attire women donned in life and on screen, and it was even more vivid because it stole the show from Shammi Kapoor in a dance number.

Meri Umar Ke Naujawanon - Karz (1980)

Rishi Kapoor's shiny silver costume in one of the most popular Bollywood songs ever composed was such a rage that less than three decades later, it would be riffed on in another Bollywood film.

Saara Zamaana Haseeno Ka Deewana - Yaarana (1981)

Bedecked like the personification of the inside of a disco, Amitabh Bachchan swayed and sashayed his way through this Kishore Kumar-crooned dance number with abandon.

Kajra Re - Bunty aur Babli (2005)

Aishwarya Rai showed up midway through the Shaad Ali film, elevating it a few notches with her impression of a courtesan outfitted in a brocade choli and ghagra, seemingly performing for the police officer rather than the crook.

Beedi - Omkara (2006)

Bipasha Basu's bright blue sequined costume stood out against the dour colours of the hinterland in the film, and the song itself became a beast in its own right, travelling across oceans to become a worldwide sensation.

Dil Mera Muft Ka - Agent Vinod (2012)

Sriram Raghavan's film resurrected the mujra number with élan, outfitting Kareena Kapoor and Maryam Zakaria in costume that was sexy without being vulgar, using it as an emolument rather than the driving force of the song.

Ram Chaahe Leela - Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013)

Priyanka Chopra dazzled the screen in a choli-lungi combine that reimagined suggestiveness in filmy songs. And while the dance steps were the draw, Chopra added plenty to the number with her nifty acting touches.
