Did Aishwarya Rai Bachchan call Salman Khan ‘naughty’?

We just can’t get the charm of the delightful former couple – Salman and Aishwarya – out of our filmi heads. Especially when Navratri is just around the corner…

Okay, so Navratri is almost upon us and we are busy unearthing some old daandiya tracks to dance our nights away to. And how could we miss out on the famous Dholi taro dhol number that keeps our feet moving and our spirits charged every time we listen to it? The song has certainly brought some colourful memories from the past into our minds – that was the time that Ash and Sallu were a fave couple onscreen and off it! But now things have changed dramatically for the two, as they have sought and found happiness by moving on and walking on their own paths through life.

When we tried to convert their popular song from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam into English, it simply got lot in translation. The past, of course, was revisited in the process….

Hey, baaje re baaje re baaje re

Dholi taaro dhol baaje, dhol baaje

Dhol baaje dhol, ke dham dham baaje dhol


Hey play play play

Drummer your drum drums, drum drums

Drum plays, drum plays, dham dham plys drums


Hey hey chhori badi amnol

Meethe meethe iske bol

Aankhen iski gol gol gol gol

To dham dham baaje dhol


Hey the girl is precious

Sweet-mushy her words

Eyes her round round round

Then dham dham plays the drum


Haan haan chhora hai natkhat

Bole hai patpat

Arre chhede mujhe bole aise bol

To dham dham baaje chol


Yes yes the boy is naughty

Talks he rapid

Hey teases me speaks such words

Then dham-dham plays the drum
