Babuji song News
Yana Gupta, happy birthday!
The Babuji… babe celebrates her 32nd birthday today
Born as Jana Synková on April 23, 1979 in Brno (Czech Republic), actor Yana Gupta shimmied her way into the hearts of millions of Indians when she arrived sitting on a buffalo in the item song Babuji jara dheere chalo in 2002 from the film Dum. Yana started modelling in the mid-90s and became the face of international brands like Calvin Klein, Victoria’s Secret, Nivea, Honda and Sony. After graduating in Park Architecture and Gardening, Yana left for Japan, where she modelled for some years. Her drop-dead gorgeous looks and spirited persona brought her to India. She fell in love with Pune-based artist Satyakam Gupta and married him in 2001. Click here to read more

The trend started with Malaika Arora Khan’s Chaiyya chaiyya in Dil Se (1998) and Shilpa Shetty’s Main aayi UP Bihar lootne in Shool (1999), fired up by Yana Gupta’s Babuji zara dheere chalo from Dum (2003). But it took a while for the trend of item numbers to really catch on with big stars. The success of Malaika’s Munni badnaam hui and Katrina Kaif’s Sheila ki jawani made it almost mandatory to have an item song in every film, and with a top heroine. In 2011, Mallika Sherawat’s Jalebi bai from Double Dhamaal grabbed the audience’s attention and Kat as Chikni Chameli in Agneepath set the screen on fire early 2012. But we know that every trend hits a plateau and then the decline starts before a fresh fad, a better trend comes along. Mallika’s Laila in Tezz in all probability is likely to mark the end of the trend that has had the nation grooving. Click here to read more
