In Bollywood we have our very own Mallika Sherawat who recreated the iconic pose in the movie Kis Kis Ki Kismet. Although it was most of a hit and run case yet she must be credited to take on the challenge. While no other actors in Bollywood have tried to try the pose, there was a time in the yesteryears when Hollywood was teeming with wannabes of Marilyn Munroe. The studios also tried to create a number of Marilyn Munroes and came up with Barbara Lang, Barbara Nichols, Joi Lansing, Diana Dors and Mamie Van Doren but no one could replicate the scene to a tee. However a number of attempts have been made. The pose was so iconic that even her dress went under the hammer for charity.
After 50 years of her passing away people are still in awe about the superstar who wrapped Hollywood around her little finger and mesmerized the rest of the world with her billowing skirt pose.
