– Suleena Majumdar Arora
Shama Sikander is reminiscent of 90s sexy heroines like Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Raveena Tandon, Aishwarya, Kajol with her red saree look. Cinematographers who have gone through 90s cinema would know how important the look of a sari was to Bollywood heroines and cinema. When Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, Raveena Tandon, Aishwarya, Kajol wore saris, the screen caught fire and those who think that saris give ladies a behenji look had to eat their mouths because the sexy Sridevi ‘does not cut’ these days. Yeh Raat’, ‘Tere Mere Lipo Pe’ or Madhuri Dixit’s ‘Didi Tera Devar Deewana’, or Aishwarya and Madhuri Devdas’ dance ‘Dola Re Dola’ or Priyanka Chopra in ‘My Desi Girl’ as much as they do in any other western dress. Didn’t look sexy. Shama Sikander flaunting her curves in a sexy red sari with perfect beauty reminded me of the sex bombs of the nineties that once completely scorched Bollywood screens and now it’s Shama’s moment. Shama has many dimensions and there is nothing that this girl cannot pull off with a sophisticated manner.
We spoke to Shama and she says, “I have grown up watching the likes of Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi and they look amazingly sexy in saris. I myself love wearing chiffon sarees, this is one Bollywood sensuous, heady look that cannot be ignored, so I thought of wearing a saree and the results were great. Saree is one of the best outfits for us Indian women. It has grace, elegance and sensuality. I have always loved sarees but I don’t get enough chances to wear it. But whenever there is a special occasion, I do not miss wearing a sari. Just want to thank all my fans and media who are showering so much love on my red saree look. Sending them back lots of love from my side.
