The incredibly talented Vidya Balan has returned to the suspense genre with her new film Kahaani 2.

Celebrate Halloween Bolly-ish style

30 October 2016 6:31 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

October 31st is Halloween, when kids (of all ages) dress up to go trick-or-treating. Then, of course, there are the cool adults getting in on the costume fun to go to Halloween parties. Since we are all Bollywood buffs, okay fanatics, we thought it would be fun to poll our writers to see who they would love to dress up if we had a Bollywood Halloween – Bollyween Ball. Boy oh boy were we flooded with amazing and inventive ideas.

Some of these costumes you could probably put together easily. However, some might need extra help from family, tailors, costume designers, stylists, costume engineers and even Oscar winning makeup artist Greg Canoom (transformed Srk in Fan and Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire)!!

Check out how the excellent team of BollySpice would celebrate Halloween Bolly-ish style.
