Sexiness comes naturally to Sharmila Tagore. The multi faceted, glamorous actress set many a trends and milestones for women in films. As Sharmila Tagore turns 73, here’s a fan-girl’s tribute to her four decade long contribution to sexiness in Indian films.
1. Zuby Zuby- An Evening In Paris
Playing the bad girl in the 60’s came with the huge advantage of getting a free reign over sexiness. And man, does Sharmila Tagore cash in!
2. Ab Chahe maa Roothe Ya Baba- Daag
A little bit of rebellion makes romance a whole lot sexier.
3. Roop Tera Mastana - Aradhana
Being stranded with a chocolate eyed lover boy during a storm, with the fire burning and your saree replaced by limited clothing is what the 60s wet dreams are made of. Interestingly, this song was shot in a single take and the very first take was what became this iconic song that has gotten innumerable sexy times going!
4. Ab Ke Sajan Sawan Mein: Chupke Chupke
What’s sexier than teasing your lover when they are around but can’t get too close because you are in the middle of a large deceptive scheme to impress your jijaji? I especially love the tch tch tch tch that Sharmila does … it’s so ada wala sexy!
5. Raina Beeti Jaaye: Amar Prem
The lyrics and mood of the song has a sense of sorrow that is deeply attractive. I can totally see why Rajesh Khanna came following the sound of this song in the film.
6. Isharon Isharon: Kashmir Ki Kali
This is the perfect new romance wala sexy song. The I like you, No, I like YOU wala feel is super cute.
7. Aapse Maine Meri Jaan: Yeh Raat Phir Na Ayegi
Once again, Sharmila finds herself stranded with a handsome man with ashiqana eyes during a storm... Biswajeet serenading you in the voice of Mohammad Rafi is the kind of stuff that makes me go weak on the knees.
