But what we forget is that among all that jazz, there is one common element defining all the movies - the quintessential Bollywood style. Choose from the many elegant online Bollywood sarees and redefine your Bengali look this poila baisakh saree.
Classic Bengali Woman
Fashion in India has been influenced by Bollywood for over a century, including Bengali tradition. Some of the industry's most glamorous stars have donned the classic red and off-white sari reminding us all of how chic classic Bengali sarees can be - simple, sophisticated and stylish.
Traditionally the sarees that had a classic red border were all either cotton printed sarees, handloom saris, pure silk saris, tussar or cotton-silk sarees. Dhakai Jamdani designs scream traditional Bangladeshi but even these are in half and half styles.
These days there are variations of this design that come in different shades of red combined with white, ivory, cream and beige.
Today the white with red border saree has come a long way and it has become quite the style symbol, thanks to Bollywood divas, like Bipasha Basu and Sushmita Sen. To complete the typically traditional Bangladeshi Bengali look of this saree, a red bindi is put on the forehead.
Modern Bengali Woman
Nowadays, they're available organic linen as well as the modern half and half sarees in art silk and chiffon. If you're a Bengali fashionista who wants to look trendy in a red saree on Poila Baisakh 2016, then wear these and be a trendsetter.
The modern Bengali woman in you can flaunt this trendy look at other major festivals like, Durga Puja and for party wear sarees all through the year. These contemporary sarees are made from affordable art silk and trendy supernet fabrics with a traditional touch.
Designer Bengali Woman
When it comes to Bengali fashion designers, one that we must mention is Sabyasachi Mukherjee. He quickly earned the name, 'Saree God', and has draped his dazzling designer Bollywood sarees on beauties like Rani, Kajol and Vidya.
When it comes to Bengali and Sabyasachi sarees, we must mention Vidya Balan, who may be Tamilian, but her first movie was Bengali, called Bhalo Theko (2003).
She looked so ravishing and convincingly Bengali in all her sarees for her Bollywood premiere and hit movie Parineeta (2005).
Other big celebs who love Bengali and Sabyasachi sarees are Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and the sweetheart of Bollywood, Madhuri Dixit; remember how they both sizzled in their red and off-white Devdas sarees, while dancing to the song "Dola Re Dola" in the blockbuster movie?
