Aishwarya Rai Bachchan folks is the choice of my star for the Rupaye Mei Solah Gaane sequel tonight.. It is for the first time I present the music from more recent times with her occupying the centre stage.. She was fabulous in Taal, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas (new) and Guru and more recently in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.. I believe she is perfect in most respects when it comes to stardom.. her Miss World title led for Hindi cinema folks to cast her in films.. I did not know till quite some time that the Bunty Aur Babli featured song.. Kajara re was composed by the great poet Gulzar sahab.. The most catching number though picturised on Ranbir Kapoor is deliberately moved towards end.. otherwise the list is as per most popular on the youtube..and it is heartening to see that songs featuring her have had huge viewer ship .. She is a Diva, an Angel and one of the most attractive face after Madhubala to appear on silver screen.. it is interesting to tell you that I have had two opportunities to see her from close distances.. first time on November 28 2009 when I had gone for the Bachchan Sandhya and later at the birthday of brother Amitabh Bachchan on October 11 2010.. She featured in top 5 faces of Hindi cinema besides Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Madhubala scoring ahead of my all time favourite Meena Kumari.. when I had made a banner for abhayas.org/blog in earlier days of the blog.. It is hoped that I have handpicked some of her top songs and repetitions from a movie are allowed as popularity of the songs was prime on my mind.. and the list has some numbers which I had not heard before.. including the most popular song in the list Bulleya from Ae Dil Hai MushkilAbhaya Sharma, June 09 2017

Gulzar Sahab..and dear Amrit who shares his birthday with Aaradhya, the daughter of Abhi-Aish wishing him best of times in the BBA course he has just been enrolled yesterday.. Interestingly he did have an opportunity to have a picture with Aishwarya and Abhishek..
