The colourful side of Bollywood men
If you thought vanity is a female preoccupation, think again. Bollywood's macho population is just as obsessed with fashion as the leading lady in tow.
Be it glittery shirts, neon shoes or coloured pants, you got it. Gone are the days when our heroes refused to look beyond shades of black, blue, and khaki or at the most, white, when it came to trousers.
Here's a lowdown on the latest trend currently endorsed by the biggest and best of tinsel town.

Unlike his performances, Bobby Deol's range in fashion is most impressive. Who else would look this dishy in these gloriously flashy purple pants?

No story on coloured pants would be complete without the mention of its forefather.
Govinda's notorious dressing sense may have earned him a lot of flak in his hey days but he seems to be the unsung inspiration behind all these afore-mentioned instances.
