Congrats to the Bachchan newlyweds!
Just spent a wonderful weekend at the New Orleans Jazzfest listening to alot of great music & eating some fantastic food - a must do for anyone that loves food, music and hanging out just enjoying life (always taking place the last weekend in April and the first weekend in May). What pray does that have to do with Bollywood? Nothing, but the weekend left me feeling lazy and that combined with the fact that we just had to pay tribute to the shaadi of Bollywood's golden couple led to this short but heartfelt two parter of a post...
'Kajra Re Remix' probably was played plenty of times at their wedding, would have led to mass partying at Jazzfest had it been played and will most likely lead to a random act of dancing in your living room upon hearing it. It's from Bunty Aur Babli, a fun little movie with Abhishek & Rani Mukherjee that marked the first on screen pairing of father & son Bachchan. This song was the show stopping item number with none other than Aishwarya herself. Check it out here. Next week a look back & a listen to the songs from Abhishek's debut movie, Refugee.

I know what you mean about 'Kajra Re' and spontaneous dancing... it's a great party song. Jazzfest sounds like a lot of fun... something to put on my 'must do someday' list.
"Kajra Re" remains one of my favorites - and even I can dance along with Amitabh doing that walrus move!
DG - every wedding that I have been to both here & in India since the song came out has been playing it at the reception - not that I am complaining ;) Jazzfest is amazing, much better than Mardi Gras. It is the perfect way to experience the funkiness of New Orleans for the 1st or 100th time.
Beth - 'walrus move' LOVE IT! Another one of those songs and/or videos that you can put on which translates to the universal language of 'party'...
does anybody know the remix version of kajra re, which was performed by Aishwarya Rai on the filmfare awards?
I would appreciate any anwser to this email id: firstname.lastname@example.org
