It’s Asha Bhosle’s birthday today and we bring five (there will definitely be more) of her classics that were later reused with a twist in recent movies. Before we get to that, some facts on this versatile singer. She has been bestowed with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award (2000) and the Padma Vibhushan (2008) by the Indian Government. Also, she has her name in the Guinness Book of World Records, for being the most recorded artist in music history. That’s really an achievement.
Here are the 5 rehashed songs of Ashaji that we loved more when it was voiced by her:
1. Chod Do Aanchal Zamana Kya Kahega
Paying Guest (1957)
This beautiful black and white romance was sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle.
Zaamana Kya Kahegi – Bombay Vikings
This song was rehashed by pop 90’s singer Bombay Vikings.
2. Eena Meena Deeka
This fun song was sung by Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar.
Featuring Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, this song was crooned by Rachel Varghese.
3. Dum Maaro Dum
Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971)
Zeenat Aman played the part of a young girl under the influence of alcohol and drugs to the ‘T’, and Ashaji crooning the song was blissful.
Dum Maro Dum (2011)
This song saw Deepika Padukone going psychedelic is a club in Goa.
4. Yeh Mera Dil
Who can forget the sensual Helen dancing to Ashaji’s tunes?
Don-The Chase Begins (2006)
In the remake of the Amitabh Bachchan classic, Kareena Kapoor Khan swayed to the voice of Sunidhi Chauhan.
5. Tu Tu Hai Wahi Dil Ne Jise Apna Kaha
Yeh Vaada Raha (1982)
Ashaji’s vocals were what made the reunion between Rishi Kapoor and Tina Ambani more emotional.
Tu Tu Hai Wahi remix
All the 90s kids will definitely remember this remix by DJ Aqeel.
