Best Dahi Handi songs in Hindi cinema
While Lord Krishna's birthday (Janmashtami) is celebrated all across the country, the tradition of breaking the curd filled pot more popularly known as Dahi Handi is more fervently organized in Maharashtra. Dahi Handi and the formation of human pyramid (referred to as Govindas) have been featured in popular Bollywood folklore many a times. We track the 10 best Dahi Handi songs from Hindi cinema. Govinda Aala Re (Bluffmaster) - One of the earliest films to feature a song on Dahi Handi happened to be the 1963 Shammi Kapoor starrer Bluffmaster. Sung by the late legend Mohd. Rafi, the peppy number Govinda Aala Re had India's first dancing superstar, Shammi Kapoor shaking his leg before breaking the handi. Mach Gaya Shor Sari Nagri ( Khud-Daar) - India's tallest superstar Amitabh Bachchan was seen breaking the handi with his forehead in this movie. The song Mach Gaya Shor was a super hit way back in the 80s with the redoubtable Kishore Kumar lending his vocals for this one. Aala Re Alaa Govinda (Kala Bazaar) - One of those rare instances when two heroes stood atop the human pyramid to break the handi together with their respective heads. And the two heroes were Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor. Shor Mach Gaya Shor (Badla) - This 1974 movie had Shatrughan Sinha breaking into a dance number with Shor Mach Gaya Shor before breaking the handi with his hands and head. Teen Batti Wala Govinda (Muqabla) - This 1979 movie had Sunil Dutt and Shatrughan Sinha celebrating Dahi Handi though there was no dahi handi breaking sequence. Chandi Ke Daal (Hello Brother) - Salman Khan is among the most secular actors of Bollywood. The actor who is known for celebrating every festival in India was seen breaking the handi in Hello Brother. Of course that was not before shaking his nimble legs to Chandi Ke Daal. Har Taraf Hai Yeh Shor (Vaastav) - What Salman can do Sanjay Dutt also can. Sanju baba was seen crooning Har Taraf Hai Yeh Shor in this gangster flick before climbing on the piles of govindas to break the handi. Agneepath - Hrithik smashed his head on the handi and soon became a hit among all dahi handi organisers in Mumbai who started queuing up to request the handsome star to grace their pandals on the eve of dahi handi. Go Go Govinda (Oh My God)- Perhaps the best foot-tapping dahi handi number to emerge in recent times, Go Go Govinda from Oh My God was a trendsetter because it had the feisty Sonakshi breaking the handi. The beautiful actress however thought it fit to use a coconut instead of her head to break the handi. Govinda (Shaitan) - Bejoy number got Kalki Koechlin to let her hair down in this dahi hand number in Shaitan. Not a great hit but nevertheless it was exciting to see Bejoy inducing the popular festival number in his off-beat film.
