The bride’s father must not look all plain at the wedding of his little girl. So, daddy dearest, get ready to be inspired because these Bollywood actors are ready to share their style secrets with you.
Bollywood Dads Giving Fashion Inspiration For The Father of the Bride:
1. Cool Dad- Anil Kapoor
It is really difficult to put Anil Kapoor on the list of veterans because he looks younger than most of the young Bollywood actors. At his daughter, Sonam Kapoor’s wedding, he looked better than even his own son. He was the star of every event. For the wedding, he turned up in a jaw-dropping ivory sherwani. He accessorized his look with exquisite strings of emeralds. He kept the look clean which is what you should aim for if you are attending a day wedding. This subtle choice is perfect for all those dads who like to keep it simple and on point.
2. The Epitome Of Fashion- Amitabh Bachchan
Amitabh Bachchan is one actor who never has a fashion faux-pas moment. Big B is a brand himself. The entire Bachchan parivaar, sans Aishwarya Rai, flew to Dubai for the wedding of Anushka Rajan, daughter of Abhijeet Rajan (MD, Gammon India). Anushka is like a daughter to Mr. Bachchan and for the special occasion, he chose a raw silk kurta with churidar. His kurta had beautiful mirror work with pink thread work as the base. Instead of a usual turban, Amitabh Bachchan chose a rather colorful floral pagdi. Amitabh Bachchan is truly a fashion inspiration for the father of the bride.
3. The Well Dressed Daddy- Dharmendra
Every time Dharmendra comes on-screen, he makes his presence felt. He is still one of the most good-looking men Bollywood has ever seen. At the wedding of his elder daughter, Esha Deol, he dressed up in really simple attires. Instead of going for the traditional wear, Dharmendra chose to wear a grey colored jacket with a crisp white shirt and black pants. He welcomed the groom along with Hema Malini looking all handsome. This get-up is best for those dads who are hoping to look great with minimum efforts.
4. The Funky Daddy- Rishi Kapoor
Rishi Kapoor isn’t the one to shy. Whether it is through his words or through his attire, he always makes his intentions clear. At the wedding of his daughter, Riddhima, he expressed his joy in a stunning golden sherwani. He completed the look with a printed safa and a metallic turban. Rishi Kapoor’s choice was a bold one, we have to say. If you want to show your flamboyant self at your daughter’s wedding, this is how it is done.
5. Subtly Stylish- Pankaj Kapoor
Who doesn’t love Pankaj Kapoor? This humble man found a cute bride for his dearest son, Shahid Kapoor. While Shahid and Mira had a soothing Gurudwara wedding, it was Pankaj Kapoor’s blue pagdi that caught our attention. The proud father wore a beige colored kurta with a bandhgala jacket in the most subtle tone of blue but the same wasn’t the case with his pagdi. He wore a bright blue pagdi which will be appreciated by any father who likes to keep it vibrant.
6. The Patriotic- Shatrughan Sinha
The desi babu, Shatrughan Sinha is a father of three kids; Luv, Kush, and Sonakshi. The wedding of Kush was an extravagant affair and was attended by many actors and politicians. For the D-day, Shatrughan Sinha opted for a champagne colored sherwani. Its collar had some beautiful work. We loved his tri-colored pagdi. Shatrughan Sinha’s look is something that every father can don.
7. The Traditional One- Nagarjuna Sagar
Nagarjuna’s son, Chaitanya and his girlfriend, Samantha Prabhu had a lavish wedding which is hard to forget. Everyone at the wedding looks their best. Nagarjuna is one of the biggest stars of the South Indian film industry. For the engagement ceremony of Chaitanya and Samantha, he wore a light blue ensemble. His bandhgala jacket had intricate thread wore which is hard to overlook. This subtle number works well whether it is a day wedding or a night wedding.
