Video: Bollywood does the dandiya

Patcy N in Mumbai

The Navratri season is here, and it's time to bring out those ghagra-cholis and dandiya sticks. And, of course, rummage through Bollywood Navratri classics.

 

We take a look at the songs you're likely to hear a lot in the next nine days.

 

Dola Dola from Balle Balle Amritsar to LA

 

This may not be a conventional dandiya song but it had Aishwarya Rai teaching Martin Henderson the dandiya. Balle Balle..., for those who don't know, is the Hindi version of Gurinder Chaddha's Bride And Prejudice.

Check out the video. You can pick up a dance step or not.

Ghoonghat Main Chand Hoga from Khoobsurat

The premise of this number is the wedding anniversary of Urmila Matondkar's grandparents, played by Farida Jalal and Anjan Srivastav. Sanjay Dutt joins Urmila in the dandiya dance.

 

It's always pleasure to watch Urmila dance to any number -- whether it is Chama Chama or Ghoonghat Main Chand Hoga. But Dutt's moves here look quite good too.

Oh Re Gori from Aap Mujhe Acche Lagne Lage

Prev     Next

After the success of Kaho Na... Pyar Hai, Hrithik Roshan and Amisha Patel came together once again in Aap Mujhe Acche Lagne Lage. The difference was that this film sank without a trace.

 

But what is interesting is that Hrithik -- who is one of Bollywood's best dancers -- does the garba in the song Oh Re Gori, in his own perfect way.
