What Bollywood wears to work

July 30, 2018 10:30 IST

From bikinis to superhero spandex, it's all in a day's work for these film folk!

The celebrity way is anything but regular.

Every little thing about their lives is off-the-wall.

And since what they do is the source of this distinction, the biggest difference shows at work as well.

While most mortals slip in formals or high street fashion to office, Sukanya Verma looks at what a Bollywood star's work wear looks like.
