Sexiest sari acts

December 23, 2008


It has taken us in India a while to realise this, but our most traditional outfit – the sari is among the most sensual dresses in the world. Check out Bollywood’s top beauties in this deadly combination of formal and sexy at the same time.

Katrina Kaif took her time in adopting the sari, but once she did, she is seen wearing it at every second occasion. Her height gives the sari a great fall and she looks simply stunning!


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has seen some fashion disasters (remember year one at Cannes), and she has now reached the conclusion that she cannot go wrong with the sari. A number of formal occasions abroad (and given her international appeal there are a lot) see her clad in the six-yard.


Another tall lady who does justice to the sari is Shilpa Shetty. She looks good in almost anything she wears, but a sort of grace engulfs her when she is in a sari…and we think she knows it now.


After a successful 2008 Priyanka Chopra will look appealing in anything she wears, but her height gives her the extra edge when she wears a sari.

5Kareena Kapoor is one lady who adopted the sari fairly early in her career. Yes, we are talking about ‘Chameli’. Seeing how good she looked in it, she decided to wear it more often.


Bollywood’s kitty of tall women has grown considerably in the last few years. Deepika Padukone made her entry in Bollywood with ‘Om Shanti Om’ and has therefore been used to people loving her sari avataar.


Preity Zinta is rarely seen in a sari, and she made up for that in one long sari-sequence in her last film ‘The Last Lear’.
Hottie Bipasha Basu is rarely seen in a sari, but here is a picture of her looking very unglamorous, but very dignified in a Tamil flick.
Rani Mukherjee is among those women in Bollywood who wears a sari most regularly. She has been seen at award shows, chat shows, movies and many other occasions donning a sari.
It was only post-marriage that Kajol started frequenting the sari. Now that she is comfortable in the drape, she wears it on every other occasion.


abhishekashAbhishek Bachchan might have worked in quite a few films with his wife Aishwarya Rai but he gets distracted when his dear wife is present. According to reports, Abhi was unable to do a simple stunt scene for his soon to be released Dilli 6  as his wife watched on.

The production unit of Dilli 6 noticed that when Ash dropped in at the film’s sets one day, hubby dear became nervous and was unable to concentrate.

The stunt scene was not tough for anyone who had starred in an action flick like Drona¬† but oh-so-much in love Abhi just couldn’t do it.

Dilli 6 is a Rakesh Omprakash Mehra film, which has Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor in the lead. Besides them, other stars in the flick are Om Puri, Atul Kulkarni, Divya Dutta, Rishi Kapoor and Tanvi Azmi.

The film is based on the life of the director Rakesh Omprakash Mehra, how he spent his years growing up in the old Delhi neighbourhood of Chandini Chowk. The film is slated for February 13, 2009 release.
