1. Rangeela did not just change an individual’s fate but the entire industry’s. Manish Malhotra got the much deserved acknowledgement and the industry got it’s most talented stylist who later carved a niche for himself as one of the best designers in the world. From chokers, High-waisted trousers, Abstract print dresses to chiffon skirts and ruffled sleeves, Manish made Urmila Matondkar look absolutely beguiling!

2. One film that launched six debutants was a huge risk in itself, of course YRF films had to play safe too. That’s exactly why they cast Shahrukh khan in the film and roped in Manish Malhotra as the costume designer. The designer had a lot up his sleeves and we all know he lived upto the expectations! From Pastels, glitters to latex, we definitely had a list of costumes that we’d loved to own!

3. K3G will always remain the epic film for multitude of reasons and Manish Malhotra’s costumes will definitely grab it’s place in the top 5 slot! Kareena Kapoor Khan was introduced to the world in an absolutely new avatar one that is still the most talked about film character in the Bollywood industry. Of course, her costumes in the film qualified as every college girl’s dream wardrobe, back then, of which the Bole Chuddiyan attire still makes for an evergreen outfit! Kajol clad in some neon coloured sarees in Suraj Hua Maddham is #FashionGoals to date!

4. Deewangi Deewangi is a historic song in its truest sense and while Manish Malhotra has designed costumes for a bevy of stars, this was probably the maximum number of stars donning Manish Malhotra outfits in one song! Which star’s attire did you like the most?

5. We saved the best for the last and that’s because the costumes designed for this particular song was, is and will always be in vogue. 14 years later we still love these attires as much as we love the song!

Manish Malhotra is still unstoppable and irrepressible and there are some things we’d never wish to be changed!
