What is Bollywood’s alcohol fixation? Read on to find out!
The Hindi film industry seems to like its alcohol a tad bit more than normal. Tabhi toh since time immemorial, love has been equated with the state of inebriation or having fun at a party has been synonymous with ‘daru desi‘ and the bittersweet hangover that follows thereafter made for a popular theme in music! We take a look at some of the recent numbers that, contrary to popular belief portray a hangover as the best feeling in the world!
Salman Khan finds his love for Jacqueline Fernandez like a ‘Hangover’ in this number in the upcoming film Kick. Salman croons this track in the lazy, laid-back and bindaas style he is popular for and has the listeners hooked till the very end of the track! Though the track has Salman tripping over everything Jacqueline says or does he hopes for this hangover to never fade! Odd, but sweet don’t you think?
I’m an alcoholic! Shaukeen
This Akshay Kumar-Lisa Haydon song is yet to be released but we hear that a teetotaler Akki will be seen humming the words ‘I’m and alcoholic’ unabashedly in the video. Choreographed by Ahmed Khan the song will have an international Pitbull video touch to and it promises to be the party number of the season! According to the choreographer this number is exactly “what the public wants”. Well Ahmed, no doubts there!
Chaar Botal Vodka- Ragini MMS 2
This Yo Yo Honey Singh number had Sunny Leone in the video looking like a chilled bottle of wine on a hot day! The rapper likes to gup down four bottles of vodka everyday and doesn’t even complain about the hangover that follows probably because he gets to dance about it with Sunny. Who would complain about a hangover like that?
Maine hoton se lagayi toh- Queen
Kangana Ranaut owned this track! We aren’t saying that Bindu wasn’t sensational enough in the original but there are hardly any actors in B-Town who can pull off a track with the same panache as Kangana’s. The whacky dance moves, the off-beat thumkas, the way Kangy stuff her cardigan while dancing on the bar-table and of course, Kangana’s sozzled expressions through are all priceless.
Rum Whiskey-Vicky Donor
This chilled out Punjabi to the core track became a favourite at several parties and weddings! The number became synonymous with the free-spiritedness of Punjabi and how they absolutely love their rum and whiskey! The light bulb fixing dance step was definitely the highlight of this song!
Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty cou;dn’thave explained friendship better than this! This number has the three actors pulling funny antics and being crazy together, because hey madness ensues when you are drunk with friendship, hai na peeps?
Chikni Chameli- Agneepath
Not a quintessential ‘daru’ number yet this one makes it to our list because Katrina Kaif shows how she will take the world by storm with just a tiny bottle of alcohol. At her sexiest best, Kat is seen luring a macho Hrithik to break his rules for once and get naughty with the drunken hotness!
