Our favourite stars have access to elite designers and exclusive boutiques. However, for the rest of us, our best source for fashion trends and inspiration is the movies we watch. Yes, the outfits that are as much of scene-stealers as the stars themselves!

Here’s presenting top 7 Bollywood movies that stole our hearts and gave us major fashion goals:

Gully Boy 

A movie about the origins of an Indian hip-hop sensation who treads on a journey from poverty to relative fame & success, Gully Boy has a lot to offer when it comes to Hip-hop fashion. From dope Hip-Hop caps to heavy gold chains and rings to our beloved MC Sher’s mesmerizing square print suit, this movie pays tribute to the classic Hip-Hop culture while managing to add a pinch of Indian style to it.


This action-packed high adrenaline movie is a treat for all Indian males seeking fashion advice. Hrithik Roshan as Kabir gives us major fashion inspiration in literally every frame. From the most sought after leather jackets and collar-up polo t-shirts to his vests, the list is endless and has already impacted the fashion senses of many. 


We were all in awe of Deepika Padukone’s gorgeous lehenga-choli as she danced to the song Nagada Sang Dhol. Ranveer’s style in this movie is cheerful and wild, with multicolored shirts, dazzling trousers, and the iconic blazer-dhoti-pagri combination that got many female hearts thumping.


If there's one movie that has influenced the hairstyles of thousands of Indians, it is this Aamir Khan flick. The semi-bald Ghajini look donned by Aamir Khan became a rage back in 2008, so much so that Aamir Khan turned barber for two lucky fans.

Main Hoon Na

This is the movie that made Shahrukh Khan's good boy cardigan sweater look a raging winter trend. It set the tone for hip college wear, and not to forget Sushmita Sen's sultry sleeveless saree look which made us all fall in love with her.

Jab We Met

The short kurti & jeans with a shrug on top or a black corset worn over a white tee with a skirt were major OOTD goals back in the day. Not to forget the patiala salwar paired with a printed long t-shirt & mojaris which became a staple outfit for many women!


Deepika Padukone is known for her style. She started the rage of Aztec prints & Coachella-esque outfits & set major style goals for everyone in the stylish brown shorts & contrast pink top.
