PIX: Bollywood stars and their FUNglasses!
Nothing spells urban cool better than a stylish pair of sunglasses. And Bollywood, with its newfound love for all things quirky and unconventional, is putting a creative spin on this much favoured accessory.
One of the highlights of Salman Khan's 2010 blockbuster Dabangg was the cool cop sunglasses he wore as Chulbul Pandey.
Now Kareena Kapoor, who sizzles in the Fevicol se item number in the film's sequel, rocks the classic aviator shades with a sheer chikan kurti in a rustic setting.
Here's looking at other Bollywood stars who put the fun in sunglasses!

Rani goes, 'Aiyyaa'
As far as the plot and treatment go, the quirky cool Aiyya may not have worked but Rani Mukerji pulled off her Bollywood fangirl look with much aplomb.
Her various avatars as yesteryear actresses and her trusty retro sunglasses in the film deserve special mention.
All fashion rules are thrown out of the window as she rocks her oversized shades with pretty much every costume.

Village girl gone bad
Aviator shades take centrestage in Anurag Kashyap's Gangs Of Wasseypur as the frail Faizal daydreams about his object of affection.
In his imagination, the fiesty Mohsina (Huma Qureshi) saunters in the room wearing salwar kameez, her luscious hair tied in a loose braid and wearing a pair of Aviator shades.

Having fun with Joker
Sonakshi Sinha has mastered the art of playing a village belle in her short yet fledgling career.
And her avatar in Shirish Kunder's Joker is a fitting parody of her own village belle characters. She dons heart-shaped tinted glasses with colour-blocked lehenga and a bright bindi.

Losing it in LA
Shakun Batra's delightful comedy sees the carefree Riana Braganza transform an uptight architect into a reckless party animal for a night.
The new friends are then seen wearing huge party glasses as they roam about town.
How can the world NOT be fun if you're looking through those funky frames!

The king of cool
Amitabh Bachchan's still got it.
Can you think of anyone else, even stars half his age, who can pull off floral shirts, neon-coloured sunglasses and leather jackets like he does?

Fashion's flower child
Sonam Kapoor effortlessly slip into the role of brand-conscious and often vain fashionista Aisha in her home production.
Her questionable acting skills aside, she does complete justice to the maginficent polka-dotted Christian Dior dress and her sunglasses.

Mr cool cop
And here's Salman Khan doing his best angry-but-well-meaning-cop impression on the movie poster of Dabangg.
The neon hearts offset the faint frown on his face.
