'Holi ke din dil khil jaate hain, Rangon mein rang mil jaate hain.' It's that time of the year when you go crazy with colours and bhaang to enjoy the festival of Holi with your loved ones. Most of us even trade our strict diet with mouth-watering gujiyaas and tempting thandaais on this day! Like last year, this time too, the Holi celebration in the country is expected to be low-key owing to the surge in COVID-19 cases and the night curfew in some states.
However, fret not! We have compiled for you some of the most iconic scenes from Hindi cinema to help you ring in your Holi in Bollywood style. Lights, camera, action and let's go!'
Right before the iconic 'Rang Barse' song, there's a scene in which Rekha and Jaya Bachchan smear gulaal on each other's cheeks. The former confesses that she didn't marry the man whom she loved. On the other hand, we see Amitabh Bachchan also making a similar confession to Sanjeev Kumar.
This Shakti Samanta directorial features the highly popular 'Aaj Na Chhodenge' song in which we see Rajesh Khanna soaking in the festive spirit of Holi and doing a jig, while Asha Parekh who plays a widow in the film is seen enjoying the sight from a distance. The turning point arrives by the end of the song when the heroine's white sari is doused in gulaal, hinting that things are going to change in her life from hereon.
From Dharmendra's Veeru getting flirty with his lady love Basanti (Hema Malini) in the song 'Holi Ke Din', followed by Thakur's revelation of Gabbar Singh chopping off his hands, this sequence is high on colours, drama and emotions.
The scene where Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) sneaks into the Holi celebration at Kiran's house (Juhi Chawla) and confesses his love with the iconic 'K-k-k-kirran' line, gives us chills! This one is a major stalker alert!
Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ramleela
It's love at first sight for Ram (Ranveer Singh) when he sees Leela (Deepika Padukone) at the latter's Holi celebration. Minus any words, Leela applies color to Ram in a seductive way before the duo break into a dance to the tunes of 'Lahu Munh Lag Gaya'.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
"Kaun chashmish?" quips Deepika Padukone's character Naina before splashing water from a hose on Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor) and his friends. Well, our heroine who has just realized her love for Bunny, lets her hair down and goes 'Balam Pichkari' with him. However, right after the song, Naina stops herself from confessing her feelings to him when she comes to know about Bunny bagging his dream job.
Filmibeat wishes its readers a very Happy Holi!
