Actresses look sizzling, glamorous and appealing in wet saree songs. The divas have appeared on screen in traditional cotton or transparent chiffon sarees.
Beauties from all generations knew very well how to flaunt their attractive figures and express their love in a wet saree. Nargis, Mala Sinha, Smita Patil, Dimple Kapadia, Zeenat Aman, Sri Devi, Manisha Koirala, Raveena Tandon, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have all worn filmy sarees, whilst singing in the rain.
Let’s take a look at 10 must watch wet saree songs spanning several decades in chronological order:
‘Tum Hi Ho’ of Aashiqui 2 (2014)
Rhim Jhim: 1942 A Love Story (1994)
In the soft rain song ‘Rhim Jhim’ from 1942 A Love Story (1994), Manisha Koirala is given a classic vintage and sensual look. Her innocence, simplicity, and purity in a yellow saree add charm to her pretty look throughout the track. Dancing in the rain with Anil Kapoor made this song a super hit. Manisha’s on-screen traits blow away her fans.
Tip Tip Barsa Pani: Mohra (1994)
Raveena Tandon’s sexy yellow saree perfectly compliments her in the song ‘Tip Tip Barsa Pani’ from the 1994 film Mohra. This rain dance highlights the seductive nature of Raveena in a wet frame. Raveena’s chemistry with Akshay Kumar, along with her bold dance moves bowls everyone over.
Her voluptuous outline and inherent sexuality add charm to her on-screen presence. This remains one of the sexiest songs from Bollywood.
Bhaage Re Mann: Chameli (2004)
In a red saree with a blue flowery blouse, Kareena Kapoor dances to the sounds of ‘Bhaage Re Mann’ in Chameli (2004). With rain pouring down her from head to toe, Kareena’s body seems more seductress. It is quite evident that a lot of effort was made for Kareena’s look and style as a sex worker in the film.
Gale Lag Ja: De Dana Dan (2009)
Katrina Kaif’s stunning look works magic with Akshay Kumar in the erotic rain dance ‘Gale Lag Ja’ in De Dana Dan (2009). The tall Katrina in a range of beautiful coloured sarees makes this track visually more draping. Katrina is successful in flaunting her curvaceous figure for this track.
With saree being a popular female Indian garment, Bollywood films will continually produce rain songs featuring actresses in such wet clothes.
