From Aryan Khan's D'YAVOL X to Alia Bhatt's Ed-a-Mamma, Bollywood celeb brands create social media buzz
The markets for fashion and beauty products have grown in India over the past few years. Given that the Indian audience looks up to Bollywood for fashion and beauty inspiration, celebrities are pushing products and brands on their social media platforms.
From being a brand ambassador to endorsing brands on social media to owning a label, Bollywood stars have executed their marketing strategies on fashion and beauty and generating the buzz on social media for their thriving businesses apart from acting.
Take a look at the fashion and beauty brands owned by your favourite stars.
D’YAVOL X by Aryan Khan
Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan recently kick-started his career as an entrepreneur. Aryan launched his clothing line D’YAVOL X and the cherry on the cake is that he made his directorial debut with its advertisement. But this is not it.
The star kid chose his father King Khan as the face of the clothing line which has left the audience breathless. D’YAVOL X was launched on April 30 with its first video advertisement. The website is now live. But the audience is not quite okay with the pricing as a mere sweatshirt of the brand starts at Rs 30,000.
The luxury streetwear brand is said to sharpen focus on Indian craftsmanship and techniques into the mix. Moreover, the first offering has two tees, two sweatshirts, three hoodies, and the brand’s Signature X jacket, of which only 30 pieces signed by Shah Rukh Khan will be made available, a Vogue India report said.

82°E by Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone’s skincare brand 82°E was launched in 2022. Named after the 82°30′ East, the standard meridian that passes through India, the brand has five luxe products — Gutu Kola Dew toner serum, Ashwagandha Bounce moisturiser, Lotus Splash cleanser, Bakucgiol Slip face oil, Patchouli Glow sunscreen and now the newly added mattifying cleanser, Sugarcane Soak.
Speaking to Vogue India, Padukone had said 82°E is a way of combining the best Indian ingredients with global standards of skincare to create a singular effective product instead of using multiple products for each skin issue.
Co-founded by Jigar Shah, 82°E did a brilliant job in marketing. From collaborating with beauty influencers to Padukone giving Shah Rukh Khan a gist of her skincare routine, the luxe beauty brand is live.
Ed-a-Mamma by Alia Bhatt
Alia Bhatt’s sustainable clothing brand for kids, pregnant and lactating moms, became a Rs 150 crore brand in just a year. Ed-a-Mamma was launched in 2020 and aims to create eco-friendly and cool clothing.
The products are made using all-natural fabrics, plastic-free buttons, and non-toxic dyes.
The brand’s website has a note by Alia, which reads, ‘Ed-a-Mamma combines two things I care deeply about: Our planet and our children. So I decided to create a world that nurtures in children, a love of nature knowing fully well that they will look after what they love. And I plan to do this with what I know best: telling stories. Everyone loves a good story. And at Ed-a-Mamma that’s what we do, tell stories.”
Anomaly by Priyanka Chopra
The haircare brand owned by global icon Priyanka Chopra roared across the global markets after its launch. Leaving behind brands like Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez, and Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner, Anomaly became the second wealthiest beauty brand in the world.
Anomaly bottles are made of 100% plastic trash diverted from landfills and ocean-bound plastic, and its cans are made from infinitely recyclable aluminum, the brand claims. It offers three different types of shampoos, a deep conditioning mask, dry shampoo, and conditioner.
Earlier this year, PeeCee landed in India to launch her brand in her homeland and collaborated with e-commerce major Nykka.
Kay Beauty by Katrina Kaif
In 2019, Kaif, one of the leading Bollywood actors, added yet another feather to her wings by launching beauty brand Kay Beauty. Katrina Kaif has always been passionate about makeup and her effortless looks in films and elsewhere are testimony.
In collaboration with Falguni Nayar’s platform Nykka, the brand offers an exciting range of accessible products, which include lipsticks, foundation, compact powders, nail paints, eyeshadows, and what not. The brand aims to cater to all age groups, skin tones, and genders with a tagline, ‘It’s Kay to be you.’
