Inky Finger: Who Wore it Best? #govote

Inky Finger: Who Wore it Best? #govote

As the Indian general elections enter their sixth phase the inked finger continues to be proof that you’re not just a responsible citizen but also trendy as heck! However, when it comes to style, no two inky fingers are the same. In this trend update we are rating Bollywood celebs who cast their ballot for the Dishkiyaon style factor of their inky fingers. Also, if you haven’t already, remember to #govote!

1) Kiran Rao and Aamir Khan

Their fingers are inked, their bright smiles are well coordinated, and we’ll forgive Aamir for his five o’ clock shadow from five afternoons ago because Kiran compensates with her fresh-as-a-daisy look. Our Dishkiyaon style rating: 10/10

2) Priyanka Chopra

That perfect round dot of the purple ink coordinates well with the pink manicure and the scrubbed clean look lets us know voting was Priyanka’s main priority, not her make up. Not that she needs any to look gorgeous! Our Dishkiyaon style rating: 12/10

3) Salman Khan

His legs are showing in his eyes, his inked finger seems to be pointing to the heavens, the entire shot is composed of hues of grey and black except for the colour of his skin and the colour of the ink. Not sure if this has any Dishkiyaon style factor but as far as ‘meaningful’ art is concerned, our rating: 9.5/10

4) Ranbir Kapoor

Granted that Ranbir’s purple shell suit coordinates well with the purple-blue colour of the ink, but given the heat in Mumbai just looking at the suit is making us sweat. Plus the finger and face are looking in different directions so we can see more face, less (actually none) ink. Our Dishkiyaon style rating: 6.5/10

5) Ranveer Singh

There are so many layers to this style statement. The heavily inked finger at the forefront, and right behind it a neatly trimmed moustache forming the perfect base for Ranveer’s pink Elton John shades which in turn form the base for his yellow headband. And all of it is picturesquely framed by the sea and greenery. Our Dishkiyaon style rating: 15/10

6) Deepika Padukone

Not as make-up free as PeeCee, Deepika also chose the pristine white look. But her paint-free nails accentuate the voting ink and her photo angle too keeps the attention on what’s most important. Our Dishkiyaon style rating: 10/10

7) Varun Dhawan

We don’t have many objections to Varun’s thug life kind of look. His ink is bright, his t-shirt is white but ladies, don’t we agree that we would much prefer to see him rocking the ink with his tousled hair showing and his shirt half open like on the latest Grazia cover? Our Dishkiyaon style rating (because we would like to see more skin and hair!): 8/10

8) Arjun Kapoor

Another thug life look, but a disaster overall. Many selfie sins have been committed here with the face unflatteringly close to the camera, and the reflection at the back, along with all that mess. Sorry Arjun, we love you and all but our Dishkiyaon style rating: 4/10

9) Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar

Another couple getting their inked finger trend on. We love Madame Azmi’s sophisticated scarf and pearl earring look to complement the ink. Not so sure about Akhtar Sahib’s detergent-blue kurta colour. Once again, as it usually is with couples, the wife saves the day with her style therefore our Dishkiyaon style rating: 10/10

10) Kareena Kapoor Khan

Another lady in white with matching frames on her sunglasses adding to a look that is so cool on the eyes. The inked finger has a white manicure too plus Kareena managed to combine a sexy come-hither look with a message for responsible citizenship! Completely bowled over. Our Dishkiyaon style rating: 20/10
