What happens to all those amazing outfits after pack-up?

Bollywood has always been one of the major sources of inspiration for all the fashionistas out there. A lot of money is spent on these super-stylish and super-classy dresses which add to the oomph and glamour of our beloved actors and actresses.

If you are a true ‘bollywood keeda’ one of the biggest queries you must have is “where do all these costumes go after the shoot is over?” If this is what you have been wondering, look no further for we have all the answers.

The dresses are locked away in boxes.


Yup, sometimes these glamorous, super pricey dresses meet a dark fate. They are locked up in boxes and kept away unattended.

Ayesha Khanna , a renowned designer of Btown says “At Yash Raj, all the costumes are stacked in petis. Each peti is labelled so that you know exactly for which film the lead stars, supporting cast and the extras wore the clothes. Later, for another film, things get mixed and matched.”

They are mixed, matched and reused…


In some cases, the producers don’t mind reusing the costumes. However, this is done so cleverly, you won’t even notice that a particular dress has been used in more than one movie. The dresses are mixed and matched with other clothes and then worn by junior artists!

According to Ayesha“Aishwarya Rai’s Kajra Re item number outfit from the 2005 film Bunty Aur Babli was used on a background dancer in Band Baaja Baaraat in 2010. It was mixed and matched. The choli was worn with another ghaghra, so it was impossible that anyone will notice it.”

Sometimes, the designers decide to keep them!

Some of the best designers of Bollywood often take their outfits back after it has served its purpose. For example, the much popular emerald green gown which Anushka Sharma wore in the movie Bombay Velvet was taken away by designer Niharika Bhasin once the shoot was done.

Some costumes are auctioned.


Auctioning of celebrity memorabilia is a really popular trend being practiced since ages. A dress worn by an actor or actress in a movie is often auctioned to raise money for a good cause.

The outfits worn by superstars Aishwarya Rai and Rajnikanth were auctioned in order to raise money for a charitable organization.

The actors/actresses may decide to keep the costumes.


The costumes are of no use to the actors/actresses once the shoot is over. However, sometimes the stars decide to take the dress with them as a keepsake. They do this only after they have taken the permission of the producer or the designer.

So now you know where all those fabulous outfits from the movies go!
