Cabaret – a lost era in the Hindi film industry.
The ’60s was an era when cabaret songs were the life of the movies. So much that they pulled crowds to the theatres. The cabaret dancers were anything but vulgar, as they shook a leg to high-octane and catchy tunes. Their oomph factor and sultriness would make men swoon and girls go red in the cheeks. However, the generation today usually mistakes these songs for item numbers. With Anushka Sharma all set to appear as a cabaret singer in Bombay Velvet, we decided to present to you some of the hottest cabaret divas of all time:
The Goddess of cabaret, no one will ever be able to exude sexiness in a dance like Helen. Her breathtaking charm and scintillating dance moves remain unmatched even today!
If there has ever been a real contender to Helen when it comes to cabaret dancing, it has to be Bindu! Famously remembered for her vamp-like roles, Bindu was a firecracker as far as dancing was concerned.
A timeless beauty, Rekha also tried her hand at the most famous trend of the ’60s! She was seen waltzing to the song Kaisi Paheli Zindagi in the film Parineeta.
The beautiful Kareena Kapoor went all cabaret for Talaash: The Answer Lies Within. With her bright red lipstick and all that sexiness, she definitely nailed it in the song Muskaanein Jhooti Hai.
Priyanka Chopra also set the temperature soaring with her hot and very Beyonce-like theme for cabaret in Asalam-e-Ishqum. With Arjun and Ranveer’s characters going all gaga over the actress, we don’t blame them!
And the latest entrant in the club is of course, Anushka Sharma. With her looks and costumes getting rave reviews from the public, it seems all her efforts have indeed paid off.
There you go; those are some of the hottest cabaret divas Bollywood has ever seen. With Bombay Velvet all set to take us back to the ’60s, we can’t wait to catch all the dance, drama and action on the big screen.
