Bol­ly­wood stars never cease to fas­ci­nate movie buffs with the cool fash­ion ac­ces­sories they flaunt in films. The latest to be­come a rage is the Gada (mace) locket that was sported by ac­tor Sal­man Khan in his film, Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan.

Whether it is re­tail out­lets, shop­ping por­tals or lo­cal flea mar­kets in the Cap­i­tal, the locket has be­come a big hit among young­sters. “Jab se Sal­man bhai ne yeh locket pehna hai Ba­jrangi Bhai­jaan mein, sabko yehi locket chahiye. Ba­hot log aate hai iske liye, aur din mein 40 bik jaate hai. Sale ba­hot ac­chi hai aur kayi baar ex­tra man­gana pad jaata hai,” says Bipin Ku­mar, a shop­keeper at Saro­jini Na­gar, who sells each piece for ` 75. Raj Singh, who works in a shop in Jan­path, has a sim­i­lar tale to tell: “We sell two vari­ants of the locket, one with a sil­ver chain and the other in a black thread, and the sale has been great,” he says.

Other film-inspired fash­ion trends that were big in re­cent years, were Deepika Padukone’s cat eye glasses from Yeh Jawaani Hai Dee­wani (2013) and the party gog­gles sported by Im­ran Khan in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (2012).
