Bollywood has continuously given us some musical gems to remember and the reason why many songs take a remixed turn today is because of its timelessness. One such gem was released 16 years ago that still compels anyone and everyone to spring up from their seats to break into dance. Kajra Re was given to the world 16 years ago and luckily has still been saved from the remix trends. Aishwarya Rai looked breathtakingly gorgeous back then and remains iconic today to this very day. She may have had a cameo role for the song but her presence teamed with the Bachchan father-son duo and her iconic dress all put together makes this unforgettable moment in fashion history. To give her courtesan attire a glam touch, her colourful lehenga was made to look even better with her paasa or hair jewellery to traditionalise it.
Aishwarya Rai oozed with grace and style magnificently for this item song that soon became a Bollywood anthem. Her lehenga had a huge role to play in it. The large floral motifs of the short choli added a fun element to her traditional look that is still clearly imprinted in our minds. While her paasa stood out for all the right reasons, we'd be too oblivious if we didn't give her matching drop earrings equal attention.
The beauty that Aishwarya Rai is, makeup is just an added bonus where a little goes a long way. All it took was a thin line of kohl and a natural gloss to go with it to truly uplift her look. And lest we forget her long luscious locks that only added substance to her character as a courtesan.
Aishwarya Rai may have aced many red carpet appearances, power-packed and dramatic performances but who knew Aishwarya Rai's starry cameo would be remembered by us all still.
