Paoli Dam and Sohini Sarkar, the prominent ladies of Byomkesh Hotyamancha, are travelling with us on this unforgettable journey. While Sohini is at comfortable channellingSridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and DeepikaPadukone, Paoli brings to life the classic beauties Suraiya, WaheedaRehman, Sharmila Tagore, and ZeenatAman. They were all hand-picked by AniruddhaChakladar. a record.
Paoli is all poise like Suraiya in Anmol Ghadi (1946). (Anarkali: Ekru; choker + neckpiece: Ekru; pearl sitahaar + jhapta: Gahanejewellery)
Paoli brings alive the innocent playfulness of WaheedaRehman from the famous Jane kya tune kahi from the classic Pyaasa (1957).
Paoli transforms into Sharmila Tagore from An Evening in Paris (1967). The hair, the eyes, the smile, the charm. #love
Paoli tries one of ZeenatAman’s looks from the cult Don (1978).
Sohini recreates Sridevi’s look in this blue chiffon sari from the famous Kate nahinkatte in Mr. India (1987). #sizzle
One of Madhuri Dixit’s iconic looks from Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (1994) is this purple sari by Anna Singh. The film is almost synonymous with this Diditeradevardeewana costume. And, after nearly three decades, we still can’t stop crushing on the loaded-with-glamour look.
