Dabboo Ratnani’s 2014 Calendar Photos

Bollywood’s most influential photographer Dabboo Ratnani launched his annual calendar at a star studded event in Mumbai on Sunday. Some of the biggest stars in the industry turned up for the launch. 

Shahrukh Khan, who has featured in every calendar (except two which were exclusively for women) said “This is the first time Dabboo has taken a picture of a man in satin sheets. I was very tired as I was coming from work. So, Dabboo said: “It will be easy for you, just lie down, relax and I will take a picture of you”.

Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who arrived with her brother, said “I enjoyed shooting with Dabboo thoroughly. The best part about working with Dabboo is that we always come up with something new. This year, we went into punk and I got a punk hairstyle and wore a cuff on my ear. The result is pretty good.”

This year, Dabboo Ratnani celebrates the 15th year of his celebrity calendar with all the top stars in the industry including stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Ajay Devgn, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kajol and several others featured on his brilliantly creative calendar.

Tons of exclusive pictures from the launch event. Have a look!

  • What are famous photographer? Why all movie stars tend to withdraw it from him?
    He may well mastered the technical aspect, such as shutter speed, light filters, setting the frame, and so on, but in artistic terms he has no taste. Rather, he does not know how to work with models. Saw a couple of pictures here. He submitted stars, it’s horror!

    For example:
    Shah R.K – “After a stormy night.” Excuse me, but I, as a woman, I do not like this photo because Shah presented as a prostitute! This photo is inherently vulgar. More …

    Priyanka, “Bad photographer?”. Not understand the meaning of the frame. What this photo Dubby wanted to tell or show about Priyanka??? Her rage? Then the upper part of the body corresponds to the idea of ??Priyanka, but then why the lower part of this? Why legs coquettishly rolled sideways? When a person wants to show rage, the entire body must comply with the plan, and here – idiocy!

    Sonakshi: “Hello 80” or 70 when punks were??? If Sonakshi goal before the end of life in the movies with actors over 40, it is on the right track. Convinces everyone that she was 40, terribly old-fashioned hairstyle. But if the young, it is silly to dress up for the old woman.

    Bipasha: “Hooray 90th”. Thighs not seen legs pumped Bipasha plus this metal jacket, all this makes Bipasha butch. Question, why? Dub wants to bury it forever as an actress???

    Bipasha: “Hooray 90th”. Thighs not seen legs pumped Bipasha plus this metal jacket … She rocker? This suit makes Bipasha butch girl, mannish. Question, why? Dubbo wants to bury it forever as an actress?

    I do not like this calendar, I would not buy!

  • SRK is looking cool in the Calendar pic… but he is looking sick in that rough beard look which he is flaunting

  • Srks poster is good..
    But I liked d last one(last year)more..
    @alyaska.. Hmm nice analysis.i think u too r a photographer..!! Isnt it..??

  • Damnnn,
    I consider as prejudice that only actors, photographers and models can distinguish art from platitude. It is necessary to have brains and taste, and taste should be brought up, developed, as well as other feelings.
    Therefore I wouldn’t want to answer your question.

    You know, in Russia there is such saying “Eyes it is a window to the soul”. In the photo I at first look for eyes, what he or it wants to tell me? Most often on a photo of the Indian actors – the cheap stuff, emptiness, imitation of feelings, isn’t present soul, and there is a complacency, narcissism, arrogance…. Units from actors at whom the majority of photos good.

    From present stars only I will mark out Aamir, at him more or less photos turn out. His look attracts, and here Shah’s look irritates – he is intrusive. (By the way, Dabboo “the remake” took Shah pictures, it already lay so on a red panel, only then it was in a black shirt).

    Salman isn’t enough photos with soul (only recently he are successful in them). He mostly is closed.

    Arjun Rampal, Hritik, strangely enough, but they have very few good photos. Body good, but a look empty as though something doesn’t suffice. Emotions it seems are, and the soul isn’t present. They beautiful, but they aren’t interesting to me.

    From actresses: Kangana Ranaut and Sonam Kapoor, and Kangana is the first. Forgive more anybody.

    Karina, Aishwarya Rai, is a lot of arrogance. They are bad model, since advertise themselves, rather than the product. (Therefore Aish in Europe have no clients, only in that part of the globe where it is well-known, i.e. in India)

    Once again I will tell, those photos which were taken by the European or American photographers, at us they are called as the artists, those photos are successful (majority).
    They are able to work with the client, to force model to be natural and to show those emotions that the artist wants. This art.

    And here Dabboo simply adopts ideas of other artists, passing them off as your own. And with clients can’t work, he can’t tell them – badly!!!
