8 times when Bollywood divas sizzled and set the temperatures soaring in a saree
Saree's the way!
A saree is one of the most beautiful and graceful attires of a woman's wardrobe. It can make a woman look elegant and sensuous at the same time. Over the years, Bollywood too has infused the nine yard in a big way and our B-Town divas have embraced the saree beautifully onscreen. In fact, more than any other western outfit, these actresses have managed to gain the maximum eyeballs for their saree numbers. So, let's walk down the memory lane and reminisce about some good old saree numbers that have redefined the beauty of our actresses in a major way and given us some of the best saree songs.
Deepika Padukone in Badtameez Dil
While, actresses back then danced in chiffon sarees in the rains to woo their lovers, Deepika chose the nine yard for a cocktail party and rocked it completely. Her blue saree in the song 'Badtameez Dil' is a hit and the actress looked super gorgeous in the attire.
Priyanka Chopra in Desi Girl
Priyanka Chopra is also called as the Desi Girl of Bollywood. Such has been the impact of the track from 'Dostana' and all credit goes to Peecee for looking so effortlessly sexy in the saree. Add to that, her latkas and jhatkas and we had another saree number to the bucket list. The song is regarded as one of the most hit tracks of the actress and her saree look had men drooling over.
Katrina Kaif in Gale Lag Jaa
Katrina Kaif wore the nine yard in the song 'Gale Lag Jaa' where she romanced Akshay Kumar amidst a waterfall and she looked sexy in it. Her curvaceous figure and her tall frame added more oomph to her sarees and the song became a hit.
Sushmita Sen in Tumhe Jo Maine Dekha
In 'Main Hoon Naa', Sushmita Sen's sarees had Shah Rukh Khan drooling and we can't agree enough. The song 'Tumhe Jo Maine Dekha' had Sushmita dancing in a saree and her look turned into a fashion statement for reasons good enough.
Raveena Tandon in Tip Tip Barsa Pani
The sensuously choreographed number 'Tip Tip Barsa Paani' had the attractive Raveena Tandon gyrating in a yellow saree amidst the rains and seducing Akshay Kumar. Her sultry moves in the yellow chiffon saree were too hot to handle. Even today, the song is a hit amongst the youngsters and no one can forget Raveena's sensuousness.
Madhuri Dixit in Didi Tera Dewar Deewana
Graceful in her dance moves and her 'adaayein', Madhuri Dixit Nene can pull off any outfit with ease. But, when she wore the saree in the hit track 'Didi Tera Dewar Deewana', she gave a new twist to the Gujarathi style draped saree with her latkas and jhatkas.
Sridevi in Kaate Nahin Kat te
Touted as the first female superstar of Bollywood, Sridevi had a different charm about herself. She could pull off any character effortlessly, but, when you got to remember a classic song of the gorgeous lady, you're instantly reminded of the sensuous number 'Kaate Nahin Katte' from 'Mr India'. A saree-clad Sridevi romancing Mr India in the song is a sight to behold. The song is regarded as one of the best saree songs in the history of Bollywood.
Smita Patil in Aaj Rapat Jaaye
One of the most versatile performers of the olden era, Smita Patil too serenaded in the nine yard as she romanced Amitabh Bachchan in the song 'Aaj Rapat Jaaye'. Who would have thought that a plain white saree with red borders could look so sensual, but a heavily drenched Smita made the saree look super hot.
