Lessons from Bollywood: How to click a selfie!

February 21, 2018 09:42 IST

Bollywood gives some interesting lessons!

Thank to Varun Dhawan, we all know how NOT to take a selfie.

Now that's out of the way, Sukanya Verma reveals how Bollywood teaches us the fun and fabulous ways to capture a photogenic you and yours with the smartphone's front camera.

 

Here's how the very Khubsoorat Sonam Kapoor always manages to be such a picture of perfection.

 

Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan gets a bunch of young Hanuman bhakts to pose with him whilst doing his bit for the selfie phenomenon in an entire song dedicated to the same.

 

'Humare pehle fight ke pehli selfie!' Shraddha Kapoor takes preserving memories to another level while snapping herself with Aditya Roy Kapoor in Ok Jaanu.

 

Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt give into typical tourist tendencies as they snap a selfie in front of a mock Statue of Liberty at Kota's Seven Wonders Park.

 

Kiss and click is the new mantra specially when you're getting a Taj Mahal-themed toilet in return, right Akshay-Bhumi?

 

Even the surly Ajay Devgn has no choice but to strain a smile for Yami Gautam's sake in Action Jackson.

 

Meenakshi Seshadri's romancing the photo frames is swapped for Athiya Shetty's selfie conscious posturing in the bland and boring Hero remake.

Not too long ago, Sunny Deol shared a throwback picture of himself with co-star Amrita Singh and tweeted, 'Selfie mode on since 1982!!!'

 

And in Poster Boys, his selfie-stick obsessed, pout-puckering, character goes overboard to prove it.

 

Stirred from sweet slumber, Sidharth Malhotra doesn't look too happy about Rakul Preet Singh's selfie mania in Aiyaary. A nap is but a little price to pay when pursuing a countless Instagram likes.

 

If you thought selfies are about smouldering pouts and syrupy smiles, here's Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone showing off its most sentimental face as the star-crossed sweethearts of Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram Leela.
