Bole Chudiyan Bole Kangana.

Payal Meri Jadoo Jagati Jai.

Mujhe Naulakha Manga De Re O Saiyan Deewane.

Jhumka Gira Re Bareilly Ke Bazaar Mein.

Sone Mein Angoothi Angoothi Mein Nagina.

From songs woven around them to adorning the biggest, brightest, bulkiest jewels available in town, Bollywood sure loves its bling.

Whether it's a happy or sad scenario, nothing like a shiny bauble to uphold the leading lady's queenly vibe.

With Diwali around the corner, Sukanya Verma looks at Bollywood's extravagant bling fetish.

 

Padmaavat

If you got it, flaunt it is Deepika Padukone's clear-cut mantra. It's like the lady decided to wear her entire tijori before melting it all for good.

 

Jodhaa Akbar

Things are far from peaceful in paradise for Aishwarya Rai's newly married queen but one drool worthy glimpse of her MAHA-maharani haar and you'd never be able to tell.

 

Devdas

Madhuri Dixit's million-dollar smile is killer enough. Add to that heaps and heaps of diamonds and gold and every single bijou fan in the audience cried, 'Maar dala'.

 

Paheli

Between the sparkling gems in her eyes and the ones on her body, super photogenic Rani Mukerji has the camera on its knees.

 

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi

Kangana Ranaut's royal avatar is pretty much dripping in gold, but look at her eyes light up at the sight of real pearl.

 

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

There are statement necklaces and there's Sonam Kapoor's statement necklace where every single diamond is the size of a tennis ball.

 

China Gate

Urmila Matondkar's massive arsenal of tribal jewelry is mighty enough to start earthquakes and wars.

 

Mughal-E-Azam

Jewels acquire an extra glow around Madhubala's inherent radiance, a real treasure to behold in K Asif's immortal classic.

 

Utsav

Yo Rekha, Midas called. He wants his gold back. Jokes apart, we can never get enough of this Goddess in Gold.

 

Amrapali

Speaking of ancient goddess vibe, the ethereal Vyjayanthimala looks straight out of a jewelry catalogue in her classical design.

 

Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani

Diamonds are a girl's best friends but Katrina Kaif decides to dump the giver of that lavish diamond necklace to live happily ever after with a fellow moong bhajiya fan in the fittingly titled Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani.

 

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham

Blinded by gold conveyed in Kajol's humorous style in a movie helmed by a film-maker whose showmanship is imbued in wealth and splendour.

 

Neel Kamal

Waheeda Rehman, India's 24 karat gold actress. Here's proof.

 

Singhasan

Mandakini and her diamonds trying to outshine each other.

 

Sargam

When it comes to bling, the Hindi film heroine has only one mantra -- more, more, more.

 

Padosan

No talk on jewellery is complete without a mention of Saira Bano's exquisite colour-coordinated gem pieces.

 

Panipat

Kriti Sanon secretly trying out a glorious gold crown embellished in priceless gems while no one is watching is every one of us.

 

Veere Di Wedding

When Kareena Kapoor's tiara sporting princess realised her fairy tale fuelled dreams two decades too late.

 

Satyam Shivam Sundaram

All that glitters is Zeenat Aman. Sexy and sparkling, could there be a deadlier combo?

 

Jewelled men of Bollywood

Occasionally, the men are only too happy to channel their inner Bappida.
