Katrina Kaif : Now-a-days, When the waterfall gimmick was almost forgotten by Bollywood in recent years, Katrina Kaif brought back the formula in the film De Dana Dan. And though this song was picturized in a studio, as against a natural waterfall that we often see, Katina’s sex-appeal was authentic. Katrina, who is blessed with a mesmerising body added charm to the song. Her oomph factor and sizzling chemistry with Akshay Kumar was enough to drive the fans crazy. Akshay and Katrina, who have several films together looked great together on-screen once again.
Mandakini : Mandakini’s waterfall scene in Raj Kapoor’s Ram Teri Ganga Maili has become a benchmark and a reference point for any heroine who has thereafter gone under the waterfall in Bollywood. The white piece of clothing, the only thing draped around Mandakini’s body (sans any blouse), went transparent under the gushing waters and displayed more than expected.
Zeenat Aman : Much before Mandakini, Raj Kapoor envisioned another similar scene for Zeenat Aman in the film Satyam Shivam Sundaram. The film had a lot of sensual content and was much talked-about for its fearless portrayal of the sensual woman in Hindi cinema. Perhaps that’s the reason the filmmaker reused the idea in another film.
Raveena Tandon : Raveena Tandon and Akshay Kumar will always be known for their sensuous song ‘Tip tip barsa paani’ from Mohra which set the screen ablaze. Some years later, the makers tried to revive the same with a waterfall song. Raveena Tandon tried to seduce Akshay Kumar in the song ‘De diya’ from Keemat under a waterfall. Though the impact was not quite the same, Raveena rocked the number with her sensuous expressions.
Urmila Matondkar : Ram Gopal Varma presented his muse Urmila Matondkar in the most sensuous form in his films. The waterfall was often used to add to her sensuality. In the song ‘Zehreela pyaar’ from Daud, Urmila is seen dancing under a waterfall. Sanjay Dutt seems mesmerized by her act in the song as was the audience.
Moon Moon Sen : Moon Moon Sen, the daughter of legendary actress Suchitra Sen, had a different vision of herself in Bollywood. She was known for her glamorous looks and sex appeal. She sizzled in many Hindi and Bengali films with her sex appeal. Not many would know that Moon Moon Sen (mother of Riya and Raima Sen) did the same Mandakini waterfall scene in a Bengali film called Gaja Makuta.
Shilpa Shirodkar : Shilpa Shirodkar was often tagged as a sex-symbol in her heydays. In Kishen Kanhaiya, she was made to do the same white-cloth-under-waterfall stunt in the song ‘Radha bina hai’. Unlike her predecessors, she did wear something under the sari. However that couldn’t conceal the obvious. The actress, who banked on her sex-appeal, did many glamorous roles in films and after an extended break of 13 years Shilpa recently returned to the entertainment world but with a TV show.
Mallika Sherawat: Mallika Sherawat, When it comes to talking about sex-appeal, how can Mallika Sherawat be left behind. In the first film that brought her to limelight, Khwahish, known for the much-popular 17 smooching scenes, one of the lip-locks happened under the waterfall. Mallika, who has never shied away from doing sizzling acts in films, once again carried off the song well. Her waterfall scene with co-star was one of the highlights of the film and their scorching chemistry proves that no one can match with Mallika’s sex appeal.
Kareena Kapoor : Kareena Kapoor made an over-energetic entry in the film Khushi with the song ‘Aayi re Khushi’. In boy shorts and tight t-shirts, she might not have been the perfect waterfall woman, the kinds that her grandfather Raj Kapoor has given to Bollywood, but she managed to grab eyeballs with her act. Though her other sensuous songs in films like Tashan are a hit among masses, her song ‘Khushi’ emphasised her bubbly side rather than her sex-appeal.
Kajol Mukherjee : Bollywood actress Kajol has always been known for her acting ability. But she has also shown her sensuous side in few Bollywood movies. The actress, who otherwise comes across as a girl-next-door, couldn’t help letting her hot-n’-wild side out under the waterfall. In this number from Sapney Kajol is seen romancing South Indian actor Arvind Swami. Though the music of the movie was a huge hit, Sapney fell flat at the box-office.
