The wearing of bikinis has always been linked to the emancipation of women. A long time ago Saira Banu and Sharmila Tagore shocked, sorry, enticed the audience by appearing on screen wearing just bikinis.
Recently Kareena Kapoor enthralled everyone with her two-piece act. Ameesha Patel looked sexy in a yellow swimsuit in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic and Minissha Lamba put on swimwear for the movie Kidnap.
In the film Fashion, debutante Mugdha Godse will be seen in a bikini. She feels more heroines are donning swimwear now because they are willing to experiment and she does not think that swimsuit scenes are just a marketing technique. .
The south film industry is also on to the swimsuit trend, with actresses Nayanatara and Namitha sporting swimwear. Namitha, who appeared in a swimsuit for Billa says that she had no inhibitions about wearing a swimsuit.
Celebrity stylist Anaita Shroff Adjania, who also styled for Dhoom 2, however, feels that bikini scenes should be in a movie only when they are required. But she agrees that heroines now are more prepared to wear glamorous clothes as they are very conscious about their bodies.
Verniness abounds! Consider two fine excerpts. First, here:
You would have missed ‘cleavage Dutta’ in Bhagam Bhag but for her chartbuster Signal. Her short dress teamed with ostrich feathers took the attention of a spunky Akshay Kumar and comeback Govinda.
That's a remarkable paragraph, and I have absolutely no idea what it means. Stunning stuff.
And then consider Celina Jaitley's response to a question here:
Bikini doesn’t sell today. There was a time when I sported it and started a trend. Many other actresses followed the trend later on. But today I don’t think bikini has remained as hot as it used to be then.
mallika removes her trouser
There is more trouble coming for Mallika Sherawat. After filing a complaint over her alleged obscene performance at J W Marriott Hotel in Mumbai on New Year's eve, advocate and Baroda Bar Association president Narendra Tiwari has furnished some more evidence in an attempt to substantiate his claims in a petition filed earlier this month.
Tiwari has now come up with photographic evidence that the star had removed the trousers of a man on stage during the performance.
The photos are below (courtesy ToI). But really, the only person who has any right to complain about that is the gentleman whose trouser Mallika removed -- and that too only if she was, heh, doing it against his will. What's Mr Tiwari's problem?
