What’s common between Aditya Chopra and the late Raj Kapoor? Answer: if Kapoor dressed his heroines in transparent saris and dunked them into pools and waterfalls, today it’s the reclusive Adi who’s taken over the mantle.

A little aside here: Kapoor’s heroines, whether it was Padmini from Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti H ai or Padmini Kolhapure from Prem Rog, backed up their skin show with histrionics (we’ll leave Zeenat Aman out for the moment). Nargis, Vyjayanthimala and Padmini Kolhapure, Kapoor’s favoured heroines, are among the finest actresses in Bollywood. Adi’s Angels (and a few other Bollywood bimbettes like Mallika Sherawat) on the other hand, can dictate trends in mini skirt lengths but don’t necessarily know how to act.
