Trivia time #33


The 2001 Hollywood film Ghost World made this song and dance number from Gumnaam famous in the non-Hindi film fan world. Laxmi Chhaya’s verve and enthusiasm coupled with the lively tune and Boy-Wonder-masked backup dancers make for compelling watching.

So today’s trivia question is: who is the manic front man in this wonderful song (the voice of course is Rafi’s)?

You can watch “Jaan Pehchaan Ho” here.

Trivia time #25

Bollywood evening on Wednesdays with Carla is becoming a tradition. Yay! Last night we watched a film in which this actress appeared, and trying to come up with her name was driving me insane. Of course I woke up at 3 am with it at the front of my brain, finally.
