Dabboo Ratnani’s 2018 calendar: All the Bollywood pictures you need to see
January isn’t just a special month for India’s celebrities because of all the award shows it brings with it. Each year, the month also marks the launch of photographer Dabboo Ratnani’s annual calendar, which is now known for its dramatic Bollywood portraits.
This time around, Ratnani’s 2018 calendar boasts not 12, but 24 celebrity images, and last night’s launch had everyone from Sunny Leone and Miss World Manushi Chhillar to Rekha, Evelyn Sharma and Neil Nitin Mukesh in attendance for the first look at Ratnani’s latest work. “Every actor works very hard on Dabboo Ratnani’s calendar,” Abhishek Bachchan said as he revealed the images. “It’s the most important photoshoot they do in the year. We look forward to it with bated breath.” Joining Bachchan for the evening were Farah Khan Ali, Ananya Birla and Karan Singh Grover.
Who can you expect to see in the pages of Ratnani’s calendar this year? Along with Bachchan, Chhillar and Leone, the gallery also includes Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Amitabh Bachchan, Varun Dhawan, Kajol, Vidya Balan, Hrithik Roshan, Arjun Rampal, Sidharth Malhotra, Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt, amongst others. Some of the most striking snaps of the year: Sinha channeling her inner party princess in wild curls and a sequinned dress, Roshan’s black and white mirror reflection, and Amitabh Bachchan’s sunny cycle shot.
