22 Vintage Bollywood Photos You Would Not Believe Exist

Fashion and beauty really are products of their ages – there is no way these pictures are remotely fashionable or pretty here in 2014. Feast your eyes on these hilarious photos of Bollywood celebs taken in the 90s and even before that, but beware – you might suffer some serious WTF-ness. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you!

Let’s start with some vintage magazine covers! This is how you manifest your camaraderie with your co-star – block letters in purple, some questionable denims and some feminine essence. Yes, we mean you too, Rajesh Khanna. © Stardust

Unflattering Speedos meet hairy nipples meet absence of the faintest idea of how to strike an expression for a cover photo – and you got yourselves the new superstars! © Stardust

Rekha is a downright diva – with her scary black cat and a hairstyle that even Lady Gaga would not be able to pull off with so much swag. © Stardust

Another Rekha classic! I don’t understand why she needs to put on a Thai traditional dancer costume and jewelry if she is going to be talking about her men – but then again, I was just a kid back then.  © Filmfare

And look! She got Kajol sharing her… er, cowl neck sweater? So cozy… and totally not inappropriate for an age when homosexuality was still a bigger no-no than it is now.  © Cine Blitz

And Madhuri too was another favorite when it came to poster girls in the 80s-90s. Who would have thought a blue net cloth and some terrible lipstick can make anyone like Egyptian? Well, there you go! © Filmfare

Forget the yellow feathers – we just could not take our eyes off that one single long nail. An empathetic symbol for all the Indian men who grow the nail on their little fingers to better scratch their ears? With so much nail art, we are not sure.  © Cine Blitz6

 

Those leather pants were probably the biggest regret in this diva’s otherwise fabulous life – but it doesn’t look like Ajay Devgn is complaining. © Filmfare8

 

Mother of photoshoots, this! And it comes with poetry too – “My heart is like a cabbage/Divided into two/The leaves I give to others/The heart I give to you”. A cabbage leaf for a hat… how charming. Mrs. Bachchan sure knew how to pose in her heydays.  © facebook9

 

Yeah, well. Even we do not understand what is going on here – but Akshaye Khanna seems very amused, as if he has been handed some prize. (Yeah, we said it.) © facebook10

 

Oh Akshay… for all the times people have been calling him Mr. Khiladi and they never saw that little ballerina inside him, ready to strut off into the sunset with her little silk tutus. © facebook11

 

Improvisation is the name of the game, bro. Who needs expensive silk costumes when you can make colorful cellophane papers and shiny aluminum foil into pretty little dresses? Personally, I think Govinda got the prettier dress. © facebook12

 

Fruit hats were all the rage since the 40s – and it is both nutritional and functional. But we don’t think Helen is being quite able to balance all those berries by herself.  © facebook13

 

Like we said earlier, every toughie has a soft spot inside. And how does Sunil Shetty get that message across? Get a teddy to stand on his shoulders, of course! © facebook14

 

Forget Mystique (of X-Men), Pooja Bhatt shows you what skin painting is all about! And this photoshoot caused a really big controversy when the pictures were published. © facebook15

 

 

Another actress who had no qualms going topless in the 90s was Mamta Kulkarni. © facebook16

 

If we had cropped that image for you guys, you would have had no idea what Karishma was holding, would you? © facebook17

 

Hey, it was not only actresses with sexual innuendos flaunting their nudity; actors had their day in the sun as well. Behold this glorious display of chest hair!  © facebook18

 

We do not know whether to focus on all that hair, those high jeans or the suspiciously pink nipple. © facebook19

 

Even girls did not look good in transparent black tops and dungarees, dude. You are not reclaiming anything, even with that cigarette in your fingers.  © facebook20

 

THIS is how you pose with cigarettes. Thank goodness for strategically placed right leg – but my eyes are already burning. © facebook21

 

We saved the best for the last! Check out that pose – with eyes almost screaming, “Draw me like one of your French girls…”  © facebookHe looks pretty good in this pic!
