Sharmila: The Fashion Icon
In the year 1969, Sharmila wore a bikini (two-piece swimsuit) for a Filmfare magazine cover and redefined the classic Bollywood aesthetic. Only a few could carry off glamour the way Mrs Pataudi did. For the film 'An Evening In Paris' (1967), Sharmila wore a blue one-piece bathing suit! Could you imagine her style and boldness? Nobody could look effortlessly polished and stylish the way she did. Sharmila proved the following statement correct, "after you become a mother or after your marriage, the right to have fun with your clothes does not revoke". It's a truth lost in the wake of abundant misconceptions around ‘dressing too sexy’ or ‘dressing your age.
Cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi married Sharmila in 1969. And one year later, their first child (we all know him well), Saif Ali Khan was born (1970).
During her prime, Sharmila Tagore was considered one of the most beautiful and glamorous women in the Indian film industry. Even at the age of 75, Sharmila never lost her touch with the raw femininity as she still commands attention with her confident style.
