5 costumes in Bollywood Films that triggered cultural controversies

Keeping up with the latest fashion trends is crucial, but not at the expense of insulting people from other cultural backgrounds. As a result of its films, Bollywood has become well-known for evoking a sense of place in the viewer’s mind.

People enjoy learning about their culture through non-subtle historical content. However, there have been instances where it has truly caused a slew of problems and offended individuals to the hilt.

Uniform mishaps caused anger in the following Bollywood films:

1. Padmaavat – Showing queen Padmavati in a bad frame

The Karni Sena and the Rajput caste claimed that the queen was portrayed in a poor light, which sparked the first controversy.

2. Rustom – Wrong uniform mess

Not only was it about patriotism, but it also had family matters and a dash of drama. However, the most serious problem was Akshay Kumar’s use of the incorrect uniform while playing a Navy officer in the film.

3. Bharat- Saree or no saree?

There should have been some controversy surrounding Bhai’s film, yet there were none. As a result, fans were irritated by the song Slow Motion!

Disha Patani was dressed in a traditional Indian cloth known as a “Saree.” That, however, was not the case. The pallu was simply rolled up and draped around her body like a regular pallu. However, this isn’t how sarees are traditionally worn. As a result, many individuals were offended, and shambles ensued.

4. Dishoom- Belt with Kirpan

When the movie Dishoom’s song Sau Tarah Ke played, people’s adrenaline levels shot through the roof. On the other hand, Jacqueline Fernandez is shown dancing in a white dress with an attached ‘kirpan’ belt around her waist.

Although it was considered trendy, the association with the Sikh community ruffled feathers. In post-production, the kirpan was removed due to the issue it caused.

5. Sam Bahadur- Vicky Kaushal’s badge

There aren’t any films about Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw out yet. Even still, the trailer contains errors. However, one can only hope that the filmmakers will take action. Former Army officer pointed up a blunder. The colour of Vicky Kaushal’s badges is incorrect. Gurkhas never wore brass buttons; they always wore black badges. Sam was one of them.
