5 Bollywood stars and their favourite selfie poses

Shoot to kill

By Shweta Gandhi  September 1st, 2017

Twinkle Khanna knows which profile works, Priyanka Chopra has nailed the winning formula, Alia Bhatt has the best selfie partner to share the filters with and Disha Patani has the ultimate accessory. If you’re having trouble on your hundredth take, you may want to take notes from the professionals. Besides, all those failed selfies can only be taking up space in your gallery, you need to get posting and posing.

Bollywood’s favourite poses decoded

Alia Bhatt's morning ritual with her cat

Alia Bhatt loves her cats, and loves posing with them too. Taken in bed, Alia's exuding the #IWokeUpLikeThis vibe. It's her signature pose and honestly her cat, Edward, knows how to work all the angles. If this cat had his own Instagram account we would follow him. He's so photogenic we're pretty sure he's a cat model for kitty litter (we'll take ten boxes). Who could blame Alia for wanting his face in all her photos, he's clearly her life coach and has taught her how to pose. Honestly, she owes him everything.


Edward needs his beauty sleep, no flash please.

...And he's back.

Edward let this cat get some attention for a while. 

Disha Patani ft. a stuffed Goku

One long scroll through Disha's Instagram will have you know that the actress is a big fan of stuffed toys. They are clearly her best accessory. Panda head gear? SO 2017. If she's not striking a pose on the red carpet, you can bet she's snuggling up to a soft toy, getting ready for a selfie. We assume she carries Goku around in her bag in case of a selfie emergency.

Disha's sleeping partner. Nope, we're not kidding.

Winter is coming. 

When Disha went to Disneyland and returned as Minnie Mouse. 

The return of the sleeping partner.

Jacqueline Fernandez, face contortionist and actor

Jacqueline is that friend who you don't have a single normal photo with because they're always pulling faces. From pouts to Rolling Stone's tongue-out selfies, Jacqueline's got them all down. She's quirky and she knows her angles, so it works. Besides, we're tired of straight faces selfies.

Tequila shots help you pose. Fact.

Jacqueline brings in Eid celebrations with a pretty pout.

Chucking up deuces. Peace out.

#NoFilter. The sun is her filter.

How adorable. 

"But first, let me take a selfie."

Perfect light, perfect sunglasses, perfect lips... perfect selfie. It's a winning formula.

That orange blazer is stealing the selfie show. 

All this natural sunlight and a good hair day. The planets have reached peak alignment.

Motion to combine all these factors into a winning filter. All in favour?

Twinkle Khanna is a lefty

Twinkle Khanna has a preference for her selfies—it's her left profile. Be it with her husband, her friend, her dog or even by her own self, Twinkle's always putting her left side forward. If you know your angles work them, and she clearly knows her angles. Her left side can do no wrong—in fact, she basically only has to right sides.

To the left, to the left.

Well, we have to say, she does look pretty. 

This left profile clearly works for everyone.
