With Purani Jeans up for release this Friday, we look back at Bollywood stars who love this comfort food of clothing!

'Jeans represent democracy in fashion,' believes Giorgio Armani. 

'I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant,' raves Yves Saint Laurent. 

'I’m pretty much a jeans and T-shirt girl,' shares one of Hollywood’s classiest fashionista Jennifer Aniston. 

Clearly, jeans are like the comfort food of clothing and a universal favourite of everybody. From designers to students, it’s a staple in every wardrobe. 

With Purani Jeans all set to release this Friday, we look at some of Bollywood’s trendiest stars and their denim style in their early movies. 

Hrithik Roshan

Before he got into the habit of saving the world in his Krrish costume, Hrithik looks quite cozy in his sporty yellow jacket and classic blue bootcut jeans.

Salman Khan

The Maine Pyaar Kiya heartthrob is all about tight-fitting, low-waist jeans today.

But here’s a picture of the superstar rocking his relatively lean physique in a 1980s version of the ‘must have’ clothing.

Now here’s a fashion blunder Kareena Kapoor wouldn’t want to feature in her book, The Style Diary of a Bollywood Diva.

Shah Rukh Khan

SRK’s ‘cool’ styling in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Dil To Pagal Hai changed the way Bollywood men dress on screen.

Before that he tried to kickstart a fad with this part-denim, part-print outing in Baazigar.

She’s receiving a lot of compliments for her impeccable red carpet appearances at the IIFA these days. Sridevi doesn’t fare too bad in 1993 either sporting a well-fitted ankle zip jeans with a two pony-tailed look.

Folded sleeves, straight cut jeans teamed with a black belt and white sport shoes, the Khiladi played to his athletic image before becoming the poster boy of all things ‘bling.’

Another actor who seldom forgets her belt at home is Kajol. Her early style is unmistakable -- high waist, straight cut and accessorized with colourful, bold print scarves.

'Kya pant hai, shirt hai, kya mast jeans hai,' sang Venkatesh for his spunky leading lady in Taqdeerwala.

Meanwhile, Raveena Tandon cuts quite a ravishing picture in her all-white ensemble.

Sanjay Dutt

Nobody wore a pair of denims like Sanjay Dutt in his prime. Whether he teamed them with casual checked shirts or a plain white ganji, the Sadak hero is effortlessly cool.
