Jahnavi Patel tells us how Bollywood gives RED whole new meanings.

The first thing that comes to mind when we think about red is love.

But there's a lot more to that colour, of course.

Bollywood knows only too well how to express itself in the colour red, from lal dupattaS to ek chutki sindoor.

We saw how GREEN is celebrated in the movies.

In our special Holi series, let's see how the magic unfolds with red.

When you have a big event to attend, red's your colour.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan knows that, and looked lovely at Cannes last year.

No matter how cliched or traditional red lehengas are, they will always make you look gorgeous on your big day.

Doesn't Bipasha Basu Singh Grover look totally stunning?
