Bollywood’s Unforgettable Onscreen Brides


Bollywood has often captured the vast diversity of the Indian culture through its diverse characters and stories. The different prominent heroines of our times have also portrayed the roles of brides from different parts of India in the most admirable manner. There are few actresses who will be eternally remembered for their roles as brides in different movies. Here we have listed out the most prominent ones for your knowledge and reference.

The Bollywood has time and again tried to capture the typical South India characteristics but few have done justice to their roles the way Deepika Padukone has in Chennai Express. She looks fabulous as the typical South Indian bride with Mogra Flowers and gold jewellery adding the final touches.

The adornments of a Rajasthani bride is shown perfectly in the movie Jodha Akbar. In the film, Aishwarya Rai plays the role of Akbar’s bride Jodha. The heavy jewellery and the perfect red bridal attire makes Aishwarya look just like the princess she depicts in the film. Nothing can beat her look in the film.

These days, very few movies show the life or dressing of the Kashmiri people. In the film Rockstar, Nargis Fakhri plays the role of a Kashmiri bride. The picture of a Kashmiri bride comes alive when the actress adorned in the typical Kashmiri attires and jewellery makes her screen presence. It is for sure a memorable shot.

We have often watched Maharashtrian villains, Maharashtrian Police Inspectors and Maharashtrian Item numbers in Bollywood flicks. But we rarely get to see a Maharashtrian bride in Bollywood cinema. Priyanka fabulously portrayed a Maharashtrian bride in the film Kaminey. She probably does well as a Maharashtrian as we have later seen in Bajirao Masthani too.

Katrina Kaif in Namastey London

Since she was brought up abroad, she has an accent that is suitable for a Christian bride. She plays this role perfectly well in Namastey London. Katrina Kaif is thus sure one of the memorable brides onscreen.

Kareena Kapoor in Omkara

Kareena Kapoor Khan is known for her acting skills and her variety of roles. She has played the bride in many movies but one of the most prominent ones is surely her role in Omkara. She looks gorgeous in the red bridal attire. The traditional jewellery adds to the glimmer. If you check out all the roles played by her, she has done fairly well as the bride in 3 Idiots. It is sure one of the rare movies where you get to see a bride on aa two wheeler and wearing a helmet.

Especially when we know that in some part of the world you are preparing yourself for the upcoming celebrations of one of the biggest festivals of India – Durga Puja. Some of us call it Navratra, some call it Kullu Dussehra, some call it Bommai Golu, and some even call it Bommala koluvu. No matter what we name the festival, the truth is that each one of us is equally excited about it. However, with festivals also comes the dire necessity to look total ethnic and gorgeous. And, there is nothing that can make u look more stunning and beautiful than the Indian National Dress itself – The Saree.

So, we bring to you a list of top 5 types of sarees that you must include in our wardrobe if you haven’t already.

While the Banarasi silk sarees are closely associated with the Bengali brides since time immemorial, these are equally suitable for wearing in festivals. The newlyweds are often found having a strong inclination towards this particular variety of Indian ethnic wear. As such, few other varieties of sarees can hardly replace the dignified appeal of a red embroidered Banarasi saree that remains an all-time favorite of Indian women.

Originating in Maharashtra, India, these sarees are also reflective of the Buddhist culture. They have a typical grandeur about them, making them must-have festival sarees in the personal wardrobe of every woman.

How to Dress up in Sarees for All Occasions


Saree, besides being one of the most elegant Indian ethnic wears, is also extremely versatile. There isn’t a single occasion in which you cannot wear a saree. However, the sarees that you wear for the different occasions should vary in terms of color, fabric, texture, designs, patterns and so on. These days, sarees occupy an important part of the collection of designer wears thereby offering ethnic lovers with increased choices and options. Your choice of the saree determines as to whether you turn heads around you or end up being the worst dressed person in the occasion. So, how do you lay your hands upon the perfect saree for the specific occasions? Here, take a look:

Deck up in Light Colors for Daytime Functions

If you are up for attending a daytime function, you need to keep precisely two things in mind. First, the color should be light preferably white or the lighter shades of cream, beige, pink or sky blue. Second, the saree should be in simple yet classy fabric like cotton.

Bright Colors and Glossy Fabrics for Parties

Gone are the days when party wears would be predominantly western outfits. You can go for fabrics like net, velvet, crepe and faux georgette while going for a dinner party with friends or office colleagues. The color can be as bright as you want it to be. Glossy red, green, royal blue, purple or any other such vibrant color will let you steal the show.

Make a Mark in the Corporate World with Raw Silk

Sarees are also considered formal ethnic wears and therefore, you can dress yourself up in one while getting ready for a corporate meeting at your workplace. Raw silk and cotton sarees in light and essentially mutted colors will brilliantly serve the purpose of rendering you with an extremely impressive and smart look. In fact, you can try out the designer silk sarees for more unique and unconventional designs that will surely lead to an appreciation of your dressing sense in the corporate world.

A More Traditional Look for Pujas and Festivals

A jamawar, kanjeevaram or Bengali tant saree is just too perfect for wearing in pujas. These are typical traditional sarees and get along well with the spirit of the occasion. On the other hand, a heavily embroidered or printed silk saree is suitable for festivals like Holi and Diwali. Team it up with junk jewelleries and be certain of looking your best.

Flaunt Heavy Embroideries in Weddings

No other saree works out in a better way than the heavily embellished zardosi sarees when it comes to weddings. You can also go for the designer net sarees that are simply gorgeous and chic. However, newly weds can prefer Benarasi sarees, known for their close association with the Bengali brides since time immemorial.

Last but not the least, if you are going on a date and want to drape a saree for that special moment, you must choose a slightly transparent net or a body hugging chiffon georgette. Choose the color carefully and keep it light as, that will enhance your sensuous appearance to great heights. The bollywood designer sarees can be simply too great for the purpose.
