Fashion-wise, Bollywood has come a long way. The influence of the west can be clearly seen in movies nowadays. But there are some things that remain quintessentially Indian like the sari or the dhoti.

While we have dealt with the sari at length, the dhoti has, till now, gone unnoticed. Not anymore!

With a dhoti-clad Abhishek Bachchan all set to wow us in Ashutosh Gowariker's upcoming movie Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, we take a look at others before him who have worn the outfit.

Click through the slide show and vote for your favourite. We begin with Abhishek. What do you think of his look?

This guy is as intense as they come. And he carries the same intensity to his wardrobe. Though we have seen him shirtless many times, he's also worn a dhoti a number of times. Case in point, Veer, Bandhan and Tumko Na Bhool Payenge.

Women's favourite pin-up guy can do no wrong. Forget the dhoti (which he wore in Deepa Mehta's Water), this hunk can even make a sack look sexy!

Acting comes naturally to this actor. So natural in fact that he simply disappears into the character he is playing.
