While India has never really participated in this celebration fully, in places like Delhi, Goa, and Mumbai, people do have Halloween parties.
So, let's try to put together a Bollywood-themed Halloween costume this time, rather than dressing up in some vampire, witch or zombie attire. From 'PK' to 'Haider', one will get many costume ideas to pick up from this year's film releases.
One can also borrow ideas from last year's films like "Chennai Express", "Krrish", "Rockstar", "Dabangg", "Go Goa Gone", "Dhoom 3" and many more. Or one can go retro-inspired with movies like "Padosan", "Sholay", "Mera Naam Joker", "Shree 420" and the list goes on.
Here are few Bollywood ideas for this year's Halloween costumes:
"Happy New Year"
Be it 'Lovely' Mohini (Deepika Padukone) or Charlie (Shah Rukh Khan) flaunting his 10-pack abs or the funniest Nandu Bhide (Abhishek Bachchan), one has several options to pick a character from this multi-starrer blockbuster "HNY."
The film that has crossed the 100-crore mark over the weekend is the best option to choose a costume from.
"PK" or "Peekey"
The film "PK" has given out many ideas in its film posters itself. Choose any one that you like and you are ready! Well the easiest pick would be the first poster, you don't have to buy any costume for that -- a stereo would suffice.
Man in black with a hoodie, a French beard, and a mask will give the perfect Salman-look from "Kick".
Shahid Kapoor's look in his latest release "Haider" was quite intense and different. This could be a smart pick to look like Prince Hamlet.
The film is basically a modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare 'Hamlet'.
"Finding Fanny" characters can also be considered for this Halloween. The look of Rosie (Dimple Kapadia) or Angie (Deepika Padukone) can be a great choice for ladies this year.
The rowdy Rani of Chambal wearing weird clothes can be the perfect pick for Halloween. Kangana Ranaut's "Revolver Rani" is the best fit for the celebration to dress up like the character.
The woman, who made every Indian proud, was honoured in Priyanka Chopra's "Mary Kom". One would be proud to dress up like the legendary Indian boxer.
"Ragini MMS 2"
Halloween is basically about spooky things and this year's Bollywood horror film "Ragini MMS 2" can give you the best ideas -- be it Sunny Leone-inspired or lifted from the ghost's look.
The attire of modern-day Jai-Veeru will be fun, too. Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh's rowdy look from their film "Gunday" will be the coolest costume for Halloween. Actress Priyanka Chopra's look can also be considered for costumes.
Bipasha Basu-starrer "Creature 3D" didn't do great at the box office, but the monster can be one of the choices for Halloween costumes.
Ajay Devgn-starrer "Singham Returns" will be the simplest but unique character to dress like on this day. Keeping a moustache like Devgn and doing the signature pose at intervals will be fun.
Even Akshay Kumar's "Holiday" look can be one of the options this Halloween. Go play with your look!
