TGIT: For Thanksgiving! Best Photos of Indian Film Stars in Feathers

Happy Thanksgiving! This is a new post, unlike the two reposts I already put up. But it seems seasonal, with turkeys having feathers and people in feathers and stuff. Plus, feather costumes are almost all wonderful (yes, there will be a lot of Helen).

I couldn’t find a real feather image of Shahrukh, but I did find this picture of him with a bird!

Why aren’t there more images of Helen’s full costumes? I must see what goes with this headdress!

This headdress is more subtle, but then is subtlety what you want in a feather headdress?

I think I like Dips’ version in “Dhoom Tana” a little better.

And then there’s Hrithik, just holding a feather

Paheli is all about female desire, so Rani gets to hold the feather

And back in the day, Zeenat with her boa!

And to end, the greatest feather costume, moment, everything, of all time. Which unfortunately is only available in terrible quality videos, but still worth watching!

Now the only question left is, if you were to pick one of these feather items to have delivered to your apartment for you to wear during low moments of your life, which would it be?

My first instinct is Zeenat’s boa because it is practical and easy to manouver in. But then, when picking feathers, is “practical” really the main concern? So instead I am picking Helen’s enormous red feather headdress. It will constantly knock against the ceiling fan when I walk around the room, but I don’t care.

And what is the least tempting feather item for you?

For me, gotta be Sonam’s dress. It just doesn’t look right, like a bird licked all the feathers off its body and then spat them out on her.

  1. Being a bird, I am fully qualified to weigh in on this, but it’s obvious that all Helen’s costumes are the best and I would wear any one of them on top of my own feathers. I dislike both Esha’s and Sonam’s dresses.


    • YES! Thank you!!!! I knew there was one I forgot, I just couldn’t remember what it was.
