Those were the days! When oversized jhoomars were part of most subcontinental classics and “chalte chalte,” from Pakeeza topped billboard charts. Every radio station in India and Pakistan alike was playing this song on repeat! Meena Kumari looked both classy and elegant in her oversized jhoomar in the song and looked like the epitome of grace and finesse. Not every woman can sport an oversized jhoomar or passa and look good doing it. But, actresses like Rekha in Umrao Jan Ada and Meena Kumari made it seem completely effortless. Consequently, oversized jhoomars gained popularity almost instantaneously. Women were intrigued by these iconic actresses. They were fascinated by how these legendary women sported it (and man it stayed intact even while they danced on the most iconic songs of all times). Admit it ladies! If it were us the jhoomar would have gone askew before the chorus even started!
