Wet sari scenes are an on-screen cliché in Hindi Cinema films, in which clothed actresses are depicted in wet saris that cling to their bodies. This functions as a proxy for nudity in mainstream Indian cinema, where nudity is taboo.

According to Pooja Makhijani, in an interview with

"Bollywood is wonderfully escapist. And completely comforting, as nothing really changes. Every blockbuster has at least one of the following: a wet sari scene, an over-the-top dance number with hundreds of mustachioed extras, an overbearing patriarch, pehla pyar (first love), and a wonderfully choreographed fight sequence in which the police show up the second the bad guys are down and out."

Some of films showing wet sari scenes are as follows:

  • Ram Teri Ganga Maili
  • Satyam Shivam Sundaram
  • Mera Naam Joker
