Magazine covers are an important aspect of gauging a star’s status in the industry. Top stars are often eyeing for well-known covers. There are also times when we see some of the most intimate moments of celebrities on magazines because of the deal stars strike. Very recently, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas released their royal wedding pics from Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan through People magazine. Of course, we had Kim Kardashian’s famous derriere on the cover of paper magazine and now an egg has replaced the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star. Back home in the 70s, 80s and even through the 90s we had some rather dramatic mag covers that would have broken the internet if the cyberspace existed in India then.
In today’s Freaky Friday column, we have 5 magazine covers that shocked Bollywood fans and continue to haunt celebs even today.
#Pooja Bhatt’s Qissa Kiss Ka
Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter has been a rule breaker. She posed bare bodied on a magazine cover and donned just a paint suit. That’s right, the Sadak actress posed for a mag cover with paint on her body. But that wasn’t the most scandalous thing that Alia Bhatt’s sister has done. Pooja Bhatt created quite a furore when she kissed her father Mahesh Bhatt on the lips.
#When Rekha-Kajol got too close for comfort
We’re all for mutual love and admiration. And we too believe that sharing is caring. But when Kajol and Rekha decided to wrap themselves literally many were left red faced. The magazine caption read: “Emotional secrets Rekha-Kajol share”, well they shared more than just secrets here.
#How much is too much?
The mysterious Rekha has been way ahead of her time as far as fashion is concerned. But this look of Rekha’s can give some of the wackiest looks a tough competition.
#Gift wrapping Govinda
It is unimaginable how the stylists got Juhi Chawla and Govinda to gift wrap themselves and then accessorise it with silver foil. If Chi Chi’s fashion choices drove you crazy then this would make you go NUTS!
#Too Much Love!
Zeenat Aman and Rajesh Khanna introduced twinning way before the internet popularised it. But the declaration of their mutual love was a little too much to handle, right?
And finally, this Akshay Kumar cover is what you must have felt like after going through these awesome mag covers.
