Iconic sarees

“Main shaadi karungi toh Kareena wala designer lehenga pehen ke he karungi varna dulhe ko tata-bye bye kar dungi”

This is a dialogue by Alia Bhatt in ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’ which many of you must already know. Well, believe it or not, that’s where a typical Indian girl gets most of her wedding outfit inspirations from. Bollywood. It is a huge deal when one gets her hands on the same saree that Priyanka Chopra or Madhuri Dixit wore in a blockbuster movie. Some movies are still known for their iconic sarees worn by the actresses.

Here are a few Iconic Bollywood Movie Sarees that stole our hearts ever since a Bollywood star wore it:

Madhuri Dixit

Hum Aapke Hain Kaun & Beta

We all know the popular song ‘Didi Tera Devar‘ from the movie. All time stunner Madhuri Dixit popularised the song by her mesmerizing moves and iconic blue saree. Till date, people try to copy the look to imitate the song. Not just once, but it has happened many times when Madhuri Dixit gave us the iconic looks to be inspired from in her Bollywood acting career. One more worth mentioning here is her Golden saree with hue of glossy orange in the song ‘Dhak Dhak Karne Laga‘. The song was so impactful that she is till date known as Indian cinema’s “Dhak Dhak Girl”.


Chandni & Mr. India

Late Sridevi has been the epitome of elegance and beauty. Some of her blockbuster saree looks from Bollywood movies are still imitated by many of us. In her iconic yellow saree from Chandni and sensual blue saree from the song ‘Kaate Nahi Katte‘, these sarees have occupied places our minds forever.

Sushmita Sen, the hot teacher made us believe that a woman can look modern and sexy in a saree too. With her plain printed sarees and a tied back knotted blouse set the trends for sarees with her look.

Aishwarya Rai


Aishwarya Rai gave out some of her best performances and looks through the movie Devdas. ‘Dola Re Dola’ was the iconic song with those symbolic white and red Bengali sarees alonside Madhuri Dixit. They both are the perfect recipe for precision and beauty with grace.
