Bollywood Actresses in Anarkali

The festive season is on! I love Diwali and the best part for me is that I am appointed the leader of the “chillar” gang unopposed and we get together in the evenings to burst the noisiest of crackers 😛 Yes, Rati did tease me for not being eco friendly 😛 Other than the crackers, Diwali brings a lot of joy and everybody is dressed in their colourful best. Colourful dressing reminds me that the trend of anarkali is still going strong, and those who haven’t shopped for Diwali clothing yet, take a clue from this post.  I have compiled some of the most gorgeous anarkali dresses that our Bollywood actresses have worn.  Check this out 🙂

Preity Zinta – Found a pic of this bubbly actress dancing in a beautiful anarkali, perfect for this festive season.


Aishwarya Rai looks in gorgeous anarkali dresses and she is wearing too many of them lately.

    1. exactly, sonakshi’s second one is too ordinary, kajol’s broad neckline ruins it and katrina’s makeover doesn’t go with the outfit..

  2. each and every outfit is gorgeous of these pretty ladies, except the one Lara datta wore (not impresses with that one!)
    and congratulations Jomol for the unopposed win of leadership *happy dance* *hifive* have loads of fun on diwali…

  3. Hey Jomol! So sweet of you to remember me having mentioned Preity Zinta *puchhi* – i do feel she has a great sense of style – off camera!

    I dont know why but i felt attracted to all the white anarkalis – Preity Zinta, Anushka & Katrina’s! Fab pics! The cherry on the cake for me was Shilpa Shetty’s indigo blue one! GORGEOUS!!!
