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?


Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan has worn a dhoti more than once whether it is in Swades, Asoka, Paheli or Devdas. We know most of you loved the films. But what about SRK's look? Rate him now!

This versatile actor is not one to shy away from experimenting with his roles or outfits, however outlandish either may turn out to be. More often that not, he manages to impress us. 

Aamir Khan

Mr Perfectionist wore a dhoti all the time during the entire shooting schedule of Lagaan so that he would look comfortable during the shots. Did he succeed in pulling it off?

Salman Khan

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!

Anil Kapoor

Forget designer threads, it was a dhoti that Anil Kapoor wore in Virasat that revived his career.

Saif Ali Khan

Not many may remember this, but Saif Ali Khan wore a dhoti in Parineeta and Eklavya. Quite a change, don't you think?


Milind Soman

The model-turned actor ditched his designer threads to don a dhoti in Agnivarsha.

Shreyas Talpade

More than the dhoti, it was the actor's performance in the movie which made us sit up and take notice.

Kamal Haasan

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