GANDI BAAT: Sexual Innuendo Titillation In Bollywood Numbers

We recently saw one of the leading stars of Bollywood, Ranveer Singh, flashing his bare butt on the big screen. How the times have changed. We have gone from euphemisms like roses, to uninhibited sex scenes. But not long ago, the closest to sex the industry got was through its innuendo-laden songs. Don't know what we are talking about? What do you think the song Khada Hai was talking about, or what Bipasha Basu meant when she sang about Namak Ishq Ka.

Intrigued? Read on about another such naughty ditties.

Khada Hai Khada Hai 

This song from Andaz (1994) which features Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla seems innocent at first. Then gradually you realise what lyricist Indeevar is hinting at with his words.


Chad Gaya Upar Re 

This song from the film Dalaal (1993) features Mithun Chakraborty and Ayesha Jhulka, who are rolling around in a haystack (literally) while dancers prance around them suggestively. The words, 'Chadh gaya upar re, panchi deewana, chug kar daana, ud gaya phar phar re,’ clearly suggest a steamy encounter


Hum Toh Tambu Mein Bamboo

The song from the film Mard (1994) is another perfect fit for the list, with lyrics like 'Lambu tambu mein bambu lagaaye baithe, hum toh tambu mein bambu'. 



Zaban pe laga re namak ishq ka. Let your imagination run wild with this sensuous song about a lovelorn woman from the 2006 release Omkara.


I am a Hunter 

This song from Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) is unapologetic about its intentions. Penned by Varun Grover, the song talks of a hunter with a gun. But why do all the women start to run? Go figure!


Ring Ring Ringa 

It is the moaning in the background which gives away the true nature of this song from Slumdog Millionaire (2012). Is it a pesky khatmal or a lover who causes the reaction, one wonders?

Dreamum Wakeuppam

Aiyyaa (2012) was replete with sexual metaphors of the crass variety. The protagonists Rani Mukerji and Prithviraj Sukumaran went all out in this song and the 'jumpingum,pumpingum’.


20 20

Main Babli hui, tu Bunty huaa, band kamare mein 20 20 hua. Now we all know that one cannot play cricket behind closed doors. The song from the film Welcome Back (2015) features John Abraham shaking a leg to this raunchy tune.


Rom Rom Romantic

This song featuring Sunny Leone from the film Mastizaade (2016) was a shoo-in for this list. All thanks to lyrics like:  ‘Rocket mera ready baby, aaja le jaaon tujhe taaron ke paar. Deedar tera hote hi, jal jaaye andhere mein bhi, candle yeh mera automatic hai.'
