Monsoons are already here. The first showers surely set up a different kind of mood. If you’re lucky and have a partner along then stepping out for a long drive is a must or if you love your own company – a steaming hot cup of chai and some fried snacks can be perfect. And what is soothing is the perfect Bollywood monsoon playlist to enjoy the weather. Today Sonu Nigam picks 5 best monsoon songs from Hindi cinema and tells exclusively to E-times what he loves about these songs.
Pyaar Hua Iqraar Hua- Film: Shree 420 (1955)
Topping Sonu Nigam’s list is this classic song picturised on Raj Kapoor and Nargis. It’s one of the most beautifully picturised songs and the chemistry of the iconic pairing is just the cherry on the cake. The song was composed by Shankar – Jaikishan, written by Shailendra and sung by Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar.
Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein- Film: Ajnabee (1974)
A naughty and flirtatious number and what makes this song super sexy is Zeenat Aman and Rajesh Khanna’s sizzling chemistry, enjoying the rain on the rooftop. This song can instantly put you in a good mood.
Aakhir Tumhe Aana Hai – Film: Yalgaar (1992)
Did someone order a saucy monsoon song? Well we’re Bollywood, we have everything for everyone’s taste. This song is downright saucy with Sanjay Dutt and Nagma’s sexy chemistry.
Tu Kab Ye Jaanegi -Music album: Kismat (1998)
The song is composed and written by Sonu Nigam and it is also his first dance sequence in the rain. The song was a chartbuster and it starred Bipasha Basu.
Dekho Naa – Fanaa (2006)
Kajol and Aamir Khan pairing is an unusual one. And if they star in a romantic film, a rain song has to be in it, because such pairings don’t come often on the big screen. Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan have lent their voices for this song and it is written by Prasoon Joshi and composed by Jatin-Lalit.
