5 Sexiest Rain Sequences

When  it  comes  to  getting drenched Bollywood actresses are next to none. They twirl and  they  twist in the  torrential  rain and they bring the house down  , but not a  sneeze! The  only time  the heroine caught  a cold after getting wet in the rain was in Basu Bhattacharya’s Anubhav whereTanuja was seen  sneezing and  coughing  after getting  wet. Otherwise  the rains mean romance,erotica and sometimes babies in our movies.Here are the five most memorable rain sequences.

1.     Hai hai yeh majboori(Roti Kapada Aur Makaan):  The great Manoj  Kumar never touched his heroines.  But he drenched them and  enjoyed watching them in wet clingy sarees. Even the  conservative  Hema Malini was not spared in Kranti. But it’s Zeenat in Roti Kapada Aur Makaan  crooning the ultra-seductive  Lata Mangeshkar  number that tops the  list of all-time  favourite rain romances . Recalling this dance in the rain  Zeenat  told me, “I never knew it would turn  out so  sexy. It was in the way he(Manoj Kumar) shot it and the way Lataji enunciated the words…We always think of the  other  sister (Asha  Bhosle) in  such songs. But Lataji was too smouldering. I give  a large part of the credit for the  impact  pf  that rain song to Lataji.”

2.     Ek Ladki  bheegi bhaagi si(Chalti Ka Naam Gadi): Madhubala is  considered  by many to be the Venus of  Indian cinema. No other  film captured her in such  a seductive  style . 

For many Madhubala in this Kishore Kumar  number    continues  to be the  epitome of    monsoonal  romance. Without showing an ounce of  flesh   she oozed  sex appeal.No wonder her leading man  Kishore Kumar couldn’t take his  eyes off. Neither can we.

3.     Kate nahin kat-te yeh din yeh raat(Mr India): Director Shekhar Kapur told me Sridevi  ran a high temeperature when she  song in the studio-generated rain. The electric blue sareeand Saroj Khan’s swaying slinky movements  immortalized Sridevi. Alisha Chinai’s vocals  also  helped to create an   irresistible aura. Once when I  asked Sridevi about  the high level of eroticism she generated with her future brother-in-law  in  this song she giggled in her  girlish way and said, “We shot  it like  any song. Who was to know it would turn out this way?”

4.     Roop tera mastana(Aradhana): Rain rain everywhere  but not a drop on  the screen. Director  Shakti Samanta  locked the  smoking-hot pair Rajesh Khanna and SharmilaTagore in  a room  as rain and  thunder  lashed  outside. Kishore Kumar’s seduction song was shot in one take, no cuts, no ifs no buts. Just two very attractive  people  gravitating  towards one  another  like magnets. No wonder there  was a baby-news the  next morning.

5.     Ab ke sawan  mein jee jare(Jaise Ko Taisa): Every time  the line  Mann mein lage aagsi comes up in  this  amazing R D Burman  song we see Reena Roy and Jeetendra look at one another so suggestively that it almost feels like an invitation  to abandon all 

inhibitions. Jeetendra  could never look rain-smitten  the way his  contemporary  RajeshKhanna  could.  He made up for  his lack of  romance by pushing hitting shoving his heroine down to the  muddy wet ground.  This song feels more like a wrestling match than a bout of seduction.But  it nonetheless makes us  tingle with anticipation.
