Millions of Americans woke up to a Winter Wonderland (and a transportation-related nightmare) this morning after a blizzard blanketed the East Coast. Since many Aerogram readers are probably stuck inside today due to the weather conditions, we thought we’d compile a list — in no particular order — of some of our favorite Bollywood snow songs.
As always, feel free to post your favorite videos in the comments.
“Subhanallah” from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Ranbir + Deepika + Snow = Awesome.
“Zara Sa Jhoom” from the 1995 Shah Rukh Khan film Dilwale Dulhaniya Lee Jayenge
Who doesn’t love seeing SRK and Kajol together? Note: The frolicking in the snow really starts at 2:14ish.
“Tujhe Dekha To Ye Jaana Sanam” also from DDLJ
The snow scenes start at 4:00.
“Tu Mere Saamne” from 1993’s Darr
Because you can’t have enough Shah Rukh Khan.
“Yahooo! Chahe Koi Mujhe” from Junglee (1961), which starred Shammi Kapoor and Saira Banu.
The ultimate snow song.
“Tere Chehre Se” from Kabhi Kabhie (1976)
As this blogger points out, the chemistry between real-life couple Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh (who are the parents of Ranbir Kapoor) is what makes this video unique.
“Yeh Haseen Vadiyan Yeh Khula Aasman” from Roja (1992)
The mountains of Kashmir serve as the backdrop to this scene. Roja was the A.R. Rahman’s first film as a music director.
“Mere Haath Mein” from Fanaa (2006)
Aamir Khan and Kajol argue and then make up in front of Poland’s Tatra Mountains.
“Tum” from Na Tum Jaano Na Hum (2002)
While Wikipedia says this film was “a disaster at the box office,” you have to admit that this is a catchy tune.
“Humko Humise Churalo” from Mohabbatein (2006)
The fun in the snow starts at 1:30.
