Beta, sweater pehno!
What are the odds of Saif Ali Khan prancing about in a sweater that Rishi Kapoor wore in the same year, romancing the same heroine? As your friendly neighbourhood Bollywood trivia scavenger, I am more than happy to answer that.
So there’s this off-white sweater with large maroon, blue and green spheres that Kapoor, championing the cause of knitted fashion since forever, sported in a lake scene of Saajan Ki Baahon Mein (1995) co-starring Raveena Tandon. It’s one of those rotten movies you think you’ve forgotten about until they return to haunt you on YouTube.
Now I’ve watched the lovey-dovey Chaha Toh Bahut in Harry Baweja’s Imtihaan (1995) way too many times to get it wrong. As suspected, Saif is wearing the exact same jumper whilst cozying up to Raveena before a campfire in the concluding bit of the melody.
Wonder if their common love interest noticed any similarity and pointed it out to either of her co-stars.
