The naughty and bubbly side of Juhi Chawla isn’t something hidden from the world of cinema. The ever graceful and smiling face of the actor has kept us entertained through various roles that she has pulled off, whether it’s romance, comedy or tragedy. Her chemistry with several actors especially Shah Rukh Khan is still considered magical. In fact, their journey together began with Darr where they weren’t sharing screen space as lovers but obsession was the leitmotif. And how can we forget Juhi’s Qayamat se Qayamat Tak or Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke with Mister Perfectionist Aamir Khan but before you start guessing that we are going to talk about films, let’s take you through the best songs of her career where we just cannot imagine anyone else.
Aye Mere Humsafar from Qayamat se Qayamat Tak:
1988 release Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak defined love for teenagers of 80’s. Thanks to innocence personified by Aamir and Juhi onscreen, the film was ahead of its times. In a socially rigid situations, Juhi and Aamir broke rules and made us believe in that larger feeling above all, called love. In fact, the film was a musical hit of its time with Papa Kehte Hain, Akele Hai Toh Kya Gham Hai and many more.
Ghoonghat Ki Aad Se from Hum Hai Rahi Pyaar Ke: With this film we saw an unknown joyful side of Juhi for the first time. A complete family entertainer, Juhi’s Bombay Se Gayi Puna in the voice of Alka Yagnik is a song you croon when you mess up with your Bae or are not getting hitched anytime soon. And how can we forget how beautiful she looked in the song!
Tu Mere Saamne from Darr: Beautiful lyrics and beautiful bonding, this song has it all. And of course being a Yash Chopra film, dancing in middle of the snowcapped mountains was a must. And when it comes to your hero, you always want to have the kind of lover who would sing for you. We might want to rethink if we want someone like Rahul but well, let’s move on.
Ishq hua from Ishq: Well, yet again in late nineties we saw the magic of the pair- Aamir and Juhi — with Ishq. Tge film also starred real life couples Kajol and Ajay Devgn.
The song – Neind churaayi Meri and Ishq Hua – remind you of the magic that was created by the duo in their earlier films.
Yes Boss, Duplicate, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani: For quite a long time, Shah Rukh Khan-Juhi Chawla’s onscreen compatibility was a safe choice to make for the filmmakers. Whether Main Koi Aisa Geet Gaun or Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam or Banke Tera Jogi – their off-screen chemistry of being best buddies came off pretty well on-screen too!
