Bollywood films make great Halloween costumes!

Halloween is here again, folks! Are you a Hindi cinema junkie? We have some ideas for you. Instead of picking out the usual ghoulish masks and capes, it's time to add a bit of Bollywood zing to that outfit of yours.

Halloween is here again, folks! Instead of picking out the usual ghoulish masks and capes, it's time to add a bit of Bollywood zing to that outfit of yours.

Being one of the most anticipated releases of this year, a Dhoom:3 outfit will surely buy you some compliments (if you do it right). Our suggestion would be to play the Aamir Khan peg on this one.
How: Don that cool black leather biker outfit with a snazzy helmet. (easy peasy) Finish the look by painting your face like a joker. (Not The Dark Knight variety for once)
p.s. Keep the helmet visor open at all times!

This one is cheater-friendly. Option 1: If your name is Ram, get your girl to wear a tee that reads Leela. or vise-versa.
Option 2: Both of you wear twin tees that read Ram Leela.
How: Wearing this stuff is easy, but you must stay in character. You must ONLY respond to the names Ram and Leela all day. Yes.

Krrish 3
Kids will love this! And adults will laugh.
How: Dress your little one as the 'menacing' Kaal (Vivek Oberoi) and write this memorable quote from the actor in bold on his or her outfit -- "I'm the daddy of all baddies!" Cough. Okay.

Mickey Virus
You're a large white sperm. Confused?
How: Get the sperm cut-out outfit right. Now, write in bold (no one should miss this), "NO, I AM MICKEY VIRUS. I INSIST." Get it?

Phata Poster Nikla Hero & Chennai Express
Okay, this costume shoulders a lot of cinematic responsibility (just kidding!) and a rather heavy poster.
How: Get your hands on the poster of Phata Poster. (or just print it out) Now, dress up as SRK wearing a lungi, carrying a golden kalash. Tear the poster from the middle and get your head through it. Ta da!

Madras Cafe
You're a Shoojit Sircar film. You must show some intelligent humour.
How: Make a life-sized cutout of a filter coffee steel tumbler. Write Pre-1996 on it. Wear it.
(Chennai was Madras pre-1996, just in case you were wondering)

Shudh Desi Romance
This is definitely an absolute favourite. Plus, everyone will compliment you on how clever you are.
How: Buy cans of Desi Ghee. Paint large hearts on them. Stick them all over you. (Strategically place them. Remember, you might want to sit at some point.)
p.s. This is an environment friendly costume. You can totally use that ghee for later.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
This one is meant as a compliment to the legendary Flying Sikh. So, don't get us wrong.
How: Wear a turban like a Sikh and get the costume fairy wings to compliment them. If you are Sikh, all the more easy for you!

Go Goa Gone
If you get this one right, you're one cool cat. Oops, I meant zombie.
How: Get the usual Halloween zombie costume from the market. Finish it with a straw hat and coconut water.

Dabangg 2
Okay, so we've all done the quintessential khakhi uniform, heart glasses costume. Time for an improv.
How: Wear the same stuff (as above) but make sure you burn holes into it. Gel your hair to look like you were in some sort of a blast. And cover yourself in soot.
Why? Da Bang. Get it, get it?
