Addendum: Salman is an equal-opportunity dupatta-lover

So in my last post I theorized that Salman Khan has a 'thing' for green dupattas on the basis of "Jhoote Dedo Paise Lelo" from Hum Aapke Hai Koun (1994) and "O Hare Dupattewali" from Sanam Bewafa (1991).

But after thinking about this a little further, I realized I was unfairly assigning him with a fetish. Because really if you think about, Salman loves all kinds of dupattas:

Lal Dupatta - Mujhse Shaadi Karogi (2004)

Odhni Odh Ke Nachoon - Tere Naam (2003)

Dupatta Tera Nau Rang Da - Partner (2007)

Chunari Chunari - Biwi No. 1 (1999)

Odh Li Chunariya - Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya (1998)

Lal Chunariya - God Tussi Great Ho (2008)

Teri Chunariya - Hello Brother (1999)

So clearly, Sallu is an equal opportunity lover of dupattas, chunaris, odhnis, etc. of all shades of the rainbow.


  1. haha I'm glad I wasn't the only one to notice Sallu's dupatta love. Interesting post! :)

  2. Kya collection hai!

    And for us firangs, can you tell us the difference among dupattas, chunaris, odhnis, etc? I _think_ I know what a dupatta is, but equally likely I am completely overgeneralizing.

  3. Great research!
    Between all of the different colors, and as Beth noted, the different types of scarves, this could be an excellent "Hindi 101" lesson.

  4. Thanks guys! I'm probably not the best person to ask since I'm Tamil and we wear 'dhaavani' ... but as far as my Bombayite knowledge goes - they're all the same? Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

  5. Ha! i agree with all the comments above, I've noticed Salman's penchants for Dupattas for a while now, lal dupatta is my favourite of the whole lot
