This October, we’re really feeling the 90s craze. It’s a dose of nostalgia that’s leaving us a little light-headed and dizzy. Rewatching films like Mohra, DDLJ and KKHH has made us question – what happened to the allure and mystery attached to a celebrity? They only existed on the big screen, then. Now, thanks (or not) to social media, the stars are so accessible to us . . . we know what they are up to, where they’re eating and who they are dating. Then, of course, there’s the PR approved answer for everything. Hence, even though we’re closer to the celebs than we’ve ever been, everything feels so manufactured and fake.

Urmila Matondkar


Urmila Matondkar has delivered some of Bollywood’s biggest hits but we’ll always remember her for her role as Mili in Rangeela. The film shot Matondkar to superstardom and her look in the movie was all the rage back then.

Raveena Tandon


How could we ever forget our Mohra girl? Tandon starred in multiple commercial hits like Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan and Mohra before venturing into serious cinema with Shool, Satta and Bulandi which were critically acclaimed.

Karisma Kapoor


The iconic Karisma Kapoor continues to be one of the most popular actresses in Hindi cinema, despite having not starred in one since 2012. She’s won multiple Filmfare Awards, a National Film Award and has given us gems like Raja Hindustani.

Shilpa Shetty


Miz Shetty shone in films like Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Baazigar, Dus and Phir Milenge and continues to be a fitness inspiration for us all.

Mamta Kulkarni


Kulkarni has been caught up in an international drug racket since 2016 but way before all this happened, she starred in several commercially successful films like Karan Arjun, Sabse Bada Khiladi and Baazi.
