What does it take to make a Bollywood rain song? Raging rains, wet sarees, lots of sighs and moans – and your Bollywood rain song is ready! Koimoi.com brings you 10 hot and happening rain songs from the Bollywood archives. Don’t forget to add your own favourites in the comments section below:
Katrina Kaif & Akshay Kumar – Gale Lag Ja
Katrina Kaif got her much deserved (and much awaited!) wet-sari song with Akki in De Dana Dan. Not only did her sexy quotient hit the roof with this number, it also made people take notice of the film.
Kajol & Shah Rukh Khan – Mere Khawabon Mein Jo Aaye
A young Kajol frolicking in the rain, sporting a white mini-skirt in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge gave men another reason to love the rains. The only way this song could have been better was if Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan danced together in the rain!
Sonali Bendre & Aamir Khan – Jo Haal Dil Ka
Was it the rain? Or the waterfall? Or the fact that we were just dying for Aamir to reciprocate Sonali’s love? The tough cop Aamir played soft and sexy as his lady love turned on the heat in this song in Sarfarosh.
Raveena Tandon & Akshay Kumar – Tip Tip Barsa Paani
Unforgettable and scintillating. Raveena Tandon in a yellow sari working her charms on Akshay Kumar in Mohra. While we can go on and on about Raveena’s sexy moves, what we are really wondering about is how Akki managed to keep a straight face for the first half of the song!
Rani Mukerji & Saif Ali Khan – Hum Tum
The title song of Hum Tum is the kind which makes you want to cuddle up. While Rani and Saif made an unusual pair, their chemistry in this song is fantastic!
Sreedevi & Anil Kapoor – Kaate Nahi Katatey (I Love You)
Sridevi probably recorded a rain song for every monsoon she was in Bollywood! We had a hard time trimming the list, and no surprises that it had to be this steaming number from Mr. India. While Sridevi gyrated to her invisible lover, the clinging wet blue sari became the epitome of sexiness!
Kajol & Aamir Khan – Dekho Na
If Kajol & Aamir could be downright sexy in their rain songs, they could be the romantic ones too. The chemistry between them, the slow rain and a beautiful soundtrack – just the way to fall in love.
Kareena Kapoor & Rahul Bose – Bhaage Re Mann
One of Kareena’s most underplayed performances, the actress took your breath away as she danced and skipped in the rain with equal sensuality and childishness. Ask Rahul Bose, he couldn’t seem to take his eyes off his sexy co-star!
Madhubala & Kishore Kumar – Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si
Of all the ways to hit on the girl you like, Kishore Kumar decided to do it by annoying her at first and then singing a song for her. Though all the songs of Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi were famous, it is this playful number with the spunky (and not to forget gorgeous!) Madhubala and the crazy Kishore Kumar, that gave the rains an extra bit of spice.
Nargis & Raj Kapoor – Pyar Hua Ikrar Hua
And the last on our list is the quintessential rain song. A trembling Nargis invites Raj Kapoor under the umbrella as the rain pours ceaselessly like their love, in Shree 420. The silhouette of the two under the umbrella will remain the most romantic image of the rains for us.
