2017 edition of Dabboo Ratnani's stylish calendar was launched last night. This year's calendar has some beautiful shots of our favourite celebs. The calendar launch event was a starry affair. From Rekha to Sunny Leone, divas at the event were all dressed to kill. Shah Rukh Khan, Tiger Shroff, Varun Dhawan looked dapper AF. The gala night unfolded amidst cocktails, gossip and lots and lots of pictures.
Some of the shots on the calendar totally took our breath away, while some disappointed us. Surprising, glamorous, racy, classy, stylish - the 2017 Dabboo Ratnani calendar has all the elements of a Bollywood film. Here is a rundown of everything hot and not about the calendar.
Priyanka Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar were some of the biggies who graced Dabboo Ratnani 2017 calendar. SRK even graced the launch event with his presence and talked about Deepika Padukone, Raees and his cameo in Salman Khan's Tubelight. Interestingly, Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar both appear in black vests for their shots. So right there we have some repetitions. At least this could have been avoided.
Priyanka Chopra's shot is quite cool, but we have seen Dabboo use taxi as a prop already. There was one glorious shot of Kajol sitting on a taxi in a previous edition.
Amitabh Bachchan, who has been a regular face on Dabboo Ratnani Calendar had a cool ride and an even more cooler companion. Big B was joined by an adorable dog thereby making a perfect photograph. Also is it just us, or do you also think that there is a slight hint of his iconic film, Sholay in Sr Bachchan's this year's portrait?
We wonder how come Tiger Shroff has not made his debut on Dabboo Ratnani's calendar already! But better late than never. Tiger makes a hot and sexy debut on the glamourous calendar. He, of course, shows off his well chiseled body in what we can call one of the best pics of the calendar.
Alongside Tiger, his rumoured girlfriend Disha Patani also makes a mark on the calendar. She poses topless to make this shot the raciest pictures on DB calendar EVER. Ms Patani looks smoking hot, and we bet you can't just look away. Tiger and Disha do make a sexy pair.
And finally, Sunny Leone also makes her debut on Dabboo Ratnani calendar. 2017 is certainly going to be great year for Sunny Leone. First her song from Raees, Laila Main Laila, is breaking records. And now she has graced the Dabboo Ratnani calendar. She sizzles the the calendar in a bold shot, and we are floored.
The bold and the beautiful!
There is abundance of semi-nude shots in this edition of the calendar. Apart from Sunny Leone and Disha Patani, there is Alia Bhatt - who seems to be having fun while skinny dipping in a pond, like in her film Shandaar. Then there was Vidya Balan, who has replaced newspaper with a fur coat in this edition.
Parineeti Chopra, though she is wearing a pajama suit, manages to give a racy picture. Then there's Kriti Sanon, who is wearing nothing but a bed sheet around her. Tiger Shroff works out in an industrial area without his shirt.
Ranveer Singh splashes water on his face, and he too is shirtless. So are Hrithik Roshan and Sidharth Malhotra. Did Dabboo go a little overboard?
While there were a few magnificent shots that might just become iconic, there were also a few that looked like half-hearted attempts. Like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks like Bohemian dream in her shot, but her hubby Abhishek Bachchan's shot is bland. Sanjay Dutt's shot looks like it was not even an attempt, just a random photograph of Sanju baba standing somewhere. Some concept, some idea - missing from the pictures. Pardon me, if I am not able to spot some hidden secret artistic message there.
Overall, we have seen Dabboo Ratnani do much better than this. How did you like this year's calendar? Tell us in comments below.
