Report by Santanu Ganguly, New Delhi: Monsoons are here, a season of romance and a season to fall in love. If not for love and romance the rains would only mean dirt and murk. Recently we spoke to the Tere Naam girl and she shares with us her love for the season. She enjoys the soft weather with a hot cup of coffee and her favorite songs that enrich the experience as she looks out at the sea from her Juhu residence. She says she loves the portrayal of monsoons in our films.
So does she actually “feel” the romance in the rains? What are her favorite monsoon tracks? A slow smile spreads across her face as she replies, “What a lovely season it is- the monsoons! I feel like drenching in every drop of the rains. But since that is not always possible I drench myself into the lovely songs and monsoon music our industry has to offer! Such lovely numbers and there are so many of them but a few favorite picks of mine would be “Rimjhim Rimjhim” from “1942 a love story”. Anil Kapoor and Manisha Koirala romancing in the rains, just too beautiful! Also the “Bhage re man kahin” song from film “Chameli” in the voice of Sunidhi Chauhan is a treat to ears and to top it, Kareena looks dazzling in the picturisation of the song. Kishor da and Lata didi’s song “Rimjhim Gire sawan” is still a famous number amongst the audience and is my favorite as well. And the song “Bheegi Bheegi raaton main” is a heart touching song without this romantic song rainy season becomes dull. And yet another song which is close to my heart is the song picturised on Big B and late Smita Patil “Aaj rapat jaye to”. The chemistry between Smitaji and Amitji is just too picture perfect!”
Having had now, a thorough knowledge about Bhumika’s favorite tracks for the monsoon, what will be your pick for season?
