Moviemavengal tweeted an amazing thing to me a couple of days ago, which has inspired this entire post. Think of it as the large precious jewel in the middle of tiny twinkling diamonds.
Women in White is a big thing in Indian film. Because white is see through when it gets wet.
And also because Raj Kapoor was obsessed with women in white saris because it just looked pretty. But men in white is not too bad either! Sets off their muscles, and their tight skin, and makes their manly chin scruff stand out.
Let us see Shahrukh ably demonstrate all the advantages a white shirt can provide.
Hrithik can show how even classical looks work better in white, with a little silver trim to bring out “light-colored eyes”.
John Abraham is very good at showing how an open white shirt is always a good look as well, making the chest seem softer and smoother.
Arjun Rampal proves that wet white isn’t just a look for women!
I debated putting in this photo. But the perfume bottle is white, so that seems good enough, right?
Dharmendra, as always, the Baap ki Beefcake.
Amitabh, the Baap ki Everything. Even in a pantsuit.
Abhishek, a little less of a Baap of anything, but certainly very cute. Especially when he shows off his biceps.
Although he will never be as cute again as he was in this photo.
Ajay points out that, white shirt, white bandage, it’s a good to coordinate.
Salman shows how sometimes a contrast is nice, white shirt/black gun.
Prabhas reminds us that it still Bahubali week.
Siddharth and Abhishek should give a seminar on how to drink coffee while wearing white and not worrying about stains.
Ranveer, bringing back the scruff.
Ranbir, working it as well.
Rajesh Khanna, showing the white shirt look that made him a star.
I just used this photo earlier, to show Shammi as the perfect Han Solo. But it’s also just a perfect white shirt style in general. Very Brando.
And finally, drumroll please, the gif that inspired it all:
Well, that was nice to look at 🙂 😉 🙂 😉
It’s Friday, I feel like we’ve earned it.

Oh my! Thank you for sharing. Brightened up a rainy gray day here in New York.
At first I thought Shah Rukh was the best of this lot–as you know I am partial. But Sushant at the end definitely takes the cake here!
These are my favorite posts to write.

I love it that you included Prabhas 😀 (Psstt.. and in case you are planning to feature a South Men in White, do it!)
I don’t know if I am qualified to do a southern themed post! Besides Prabhas, Dulquer, and Nivin, I don’t really know anyone else. Oh! and Mahesh Babu. And Prithviraj. And Sidharth and Madhavan. Okay, maybe I could pull together a post!

And Vikram! He was one of my early favs!
Just found this one and it made me chuckle.
It made me chuckle too!
How could you forget your favorite Nagarjuna?!? 🙂
I don’t have time to search for the image, but if you wanted to combine men in white, Bahubali week, and sexy white when wet, I don’t know how you missed Prabhas in a white dhoti wading through the river to the waterfall while carrying the Shiva Linga in Bahubali 1. Encapsulates all your themes in one!
Also on Prabhas, that Shivuni Aana song pretty much knocked me down and made me a drooling fan — so much so that I then went on a quest of all his other films, and discovered, much to my surprise, just how sexy a man in a dhoti could be, whether it is folded up above the knees (Prabhas in a white folded dhoti in the disrupted wedding fight scene in Mirchi), or worn decorously in a formal drape (Prabhas in a white silk dhoti in the imagined wedding sequence with Kajal in the first half of Mr. Perfect). I’ll try to find these images for you later.

Oh my, you are so right! I was image searching “white shirt”, which must be how I missed all the dhoti photos.

Yes! And Prithviraj, nivin, Dulquer , fahadh, Mahesh Babu, Prabhas, Sid, Madhavan apart from the superstars are all generally resplendent in white 😊😊
My comment disappeared? Or did I forget to hit “post comment?”
No, wordpress was acting weird, I think it was trying to do too many things and your comment got lost. It’s back now, along with my reply.
The Sushant video…very inspiring 🙂
I started doing TGIFs back last fall, so you have about 10 months of archives to dig through if you choose. Enjoy!
