Bollywood beauties have often donned ghagra-choli's and created a huge fan following with their hot dances.
Here's a look at some of the most famous ghagra girls in the film industry…
Malaika Arora Khan: Malaika shook the silver screen as she gyrated to Munni Badnaam Hui opposite brother-in-law Salman Khan in blockbuster Dabangg. Her rock-hard abs were a sight, as she shook her body like only Malaika can! With men dancing to her tune in the song, this ghagra moment will be remembered for generations.
Katrina Kaif: It's hard to imagine the 'angel-faced' Katrina Kaif don a ghagra and get naughty, but stills from her new movie Tees Maar Khan show her becoming the new 'Jhumma' with apparent ease. We can't wait to see her gyrating to the taps of a thousand beer mugs.
Sameera Reddy: This southern sensation is also seen flaunting her newly acquired toned body in soon-to-release Akrosh in a shimmery ghagra.
Bipasha Basu: Chamanbahar Billo aka Bipasha Basu voiced sweet nothings with a twisted meaning to them with such suggestiveness in Beedi jalailey, that she sent men breaking all rules of modesty. All under the influence of alcohol, of course!
Madhuri Dixit: The beauty with a million dollar smile heightened the mystery about her as she danced to the tunes of a snake-charmer's been in Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai. The song had a raw appeal to it, not many can replicate.
Aishwarya Rai: Former Miss World needs no introduction post Kajra Re. With Bachchan Sr and Jr looking on as she shook herself, the gorgeous light eyed beauty created Bollywood history with her teasing sensuality.
Sadhana: A street performer, with tasteful moves and endearing expressions, yesteryear beauty Sadhana won the hearts of the masses in Jhumka gira re from Mera Saaya, and the song still remains a favourite all time hit.
Rekha: The love saga of Rekha and Big B carried on in Mr Natwarlal, where the glamourous actress swooned and swayed over her pardesia.
Zeenat Aman: Zeenat proved a true Raj Kapoor beauty and her ghagra choli's in Satyam Shivam Sundaram became a rage.
Priyanka Chopra: Former Miss World brought out Akshaye Khanna from his drunken reverie, as she showed off her killer body in a green ghagra in Saiyyan Re from Salaam-e-Ishq. This song definitely deserves a mention.
Malaika Arora Khan: Shah Rukh Khan and a hundred more turbaned men synchronized their head-banging to Malaika's beat in Chaiyya Chaiyya. The song was one of its kind, not only for the sheer energy of those crazy heads dancing on the top of a moving train but also for the spirited lyrics and the breathtaking scenaries.
Preity Zinta: This bubbly beauty flashed her cute dimples, complemented perfectly by the red-hot ghagra in Happening Happening from Main Aurr Mrs Khanna. This was the old ghagra bit done in a modern style.
Rani Mukherjee: In love with a ghost, Rani Mukherjee played the role of an unloved, dissatisfied wife. Throughout the movie the actress is seen in colourful ghagras, with colourful bindis and kangans.
Aruna Irani: She charmed us with her girl-ish charm as she danced in cute pigtails for her song Dilbar dil se in Caravan.
Mumtaz: Yesteryear beauty Mumtaz has always been a favourite and her performance in Ram aur Shyam was no different. The perky village belle may have conceded defeat in the song O balam tere pyar ki thandi aag mein jalte jaltey, but she did win over the heart of her on-screen beau, Dilip Kumar.
Shilpa Shetty: An endless plait, a wedding and Shilpa Shetty's slender ghagra clad body- a perfect recipe for a smashing number. UP Bihar lootne from Shool was highly popular, so much so that even today it sets the mood right when nothing else can.
Lara Dutta: Former Miss Universe made it hot as she danced in agony for her lover in Mujhe Tune Jo Dekha (Mumbai Se Aaya Mera Dost). Her kohl-lined eyes and sun-kissed golden skin made the desert song even hotter.
Yana Gupta: Model-turned-actress danced rhythmically to Babuji zara dheere chalo in a 'barely-there' ghagra and made the otherwise menacing men melt for her. This was the only high point in the movie Dum.
Gracy Singh: Debutante Gracy Singh in Lagaan was the innocent, doe-eyed village belle with a slightly bold side to her. She stole our hearts as she expressed her insecurities in Radha Kaise Na jale.
Koena Mitra: The Bong beauty seemed to be in a different world in Khullam Khulla Pyaar Karein, karein kabhi chori sey from Road. The suggestive gestures were just as dark and bold as the setup, making the song definitely deserving.
Madhuri Dixit: Welcomed by a thousand men chanting her name, the lovable Mohini danced in a colourful ghagra as she waited for her lovers arrival in Ek Do Teen from Tezaab. She sent the whole nation into frenzy with her coquettish moves.
Hema Malini: Dream girl Hema Malini played the role of the lovable, talkative village belle in Sholay. Basanti grew on us without any warning and went on to become one of the most remembered characters of Indian cinema.
Urmila Matondkar: Urmila's shiny ghagra created waves as she sashayed to Chamma Chamma to add some spice to an otherwise bland China Gate.
Asha Parekh: She played the character of a rural villager Anju in Mera gaon mera desh. With her dreamy eyes and fluid moves, accentuated with the multi-coloured ghagra-choli's, Asha wooed everyone.
Twinkle Khanna: As the troubled Roopa, whose beauty is enchanting, Twinkle Khanna gave a convincing performance in Mela. It was only natural to sympathize with her tragic destiny.
