Love this Besos

Love this Besos

Anushka Jagtiani & Swati Shah founded the store because of their love for trendy and fun fashion. They have two stores, one in Kemps Corner and another in Bandra. Also, for those who have that bikini body and are on the lookout for a swimsuit, I know that Besos has some cool swimwear! I really like that they do these hampers (like MissMalini’s) for parties, that start from 300rs onwards, perfect for those sweet 16s or a bachelorette party.

For more details on the store and their other promotions like them on Facebook.

    Mehndi Ki Raat Aayi Aayi Mehndi Ki Raat
    Dekhe Koi Pyari Dulhan K Hath…

  • Prerana Ranjan

    my all time fav “Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna ” from Dilwale Dulhaniya Ley Jayengay :):)
    coz its one of the hit song since so many years nd best to be played in shaadi sangeet :):) kajol nd shahrukh rock in dis movie as well as in this song too
    do play it Miss malini ji :):)

  • tanushree

    or bole chudia from K3G!
    PS:the plus point is that u can copy all the kareena kapoor moves!

    or u might try “chane k khet mein” nd try doing the signature saroj khan step of it :P

  • Amit Gupta

    Mehndi Laga ke Rakhna because its music and picturization both are excellent

  • Indigirl

    Can’t stop at one. I have 3 faves – Laung de lashkara from Patiala House, Mehendi Laga ke Rakhna & Bhumbro Bhumbro from DDLJ. You could add Maa da Ladla from Dostana if the groom is around ;-)

    Have a fun mehendi!

  • Ekta

    Hey MAlini,
    My all time favorite song for MEhendi would b chalka chalka re from saathiya and Rab Rakha from love breakups zindagi…it’s a beautiful number to play for MEhendi :)
    Luv u Miss Malini

  • Hetal

    Hi MissMalini,

    My Favorite Mehndi song is from he movie zubeida. It was played on My Wedding Mehndi too. It is so sweet and meaningful. I wish you to play this one in your Wedding Mehndi Too. :-))

    Here are few lines..

    मेहँदी हे रचने वाली, हाथो में गहरी लाली,
    कही सखिया अब कालिया, हाथो में खिलने वाली हे!
    तेरे मन को जीवन को नयी खुशिया मिलने वाली हे!
    ओ हरीयाली बन्नो..

  • tanushree

    Bhumbro Bhumbro from mission kashmir is also good..its fast and everyone can dance on it too :)

  • Hiral

    My favorite mehendi song is taare hai baraati from virasat.. It is a special number for me as well.. cos my friends did a surprise dance on this song .. specially for me :)

  • Kavita

    my favorite mehendi songs would be Bhumbro Bhumbro and Bole Chudiya. :D super fun songs to dance to.

  • Priti Jaggi

    Hi MAlini,
    Best mehendi song for me is mehendi ni mehendi from deewana mujhsa gives u a very touchy family feel as well as mehendi function feel…Plz hear it if u haven’t and add it to ur playlist. Enjoy !!

  • tanushree

    dnt miss out on “oooh la la” the current hot fav ;)

  • Sonika

    I guess the ultimate couple song to play on a mehendi is ‘Chal Pyaar Karegi’ from Jab Pyaar Kissi se Hota Hai! Gal Mithi Mithi Bol is also quite fun!

  • Disha

    Hey Malini!
    My fav wedding/Mehendi songs are
    Say na say na from Bluffmaster
    Ainvayi ainvayi from Band baaja baraat
    Goonje angnaa mein shehnaai from life partner
    Baari Barsi from Band baaja Baraat

    Hope these songs help u in making a fun playlist!
    – Disha.

  • Shruti

    My favourite mehendi song is Mehendi hai Rachne waali from the Film Zubaida. The Aura it creates during the Mehendi ceremony is just explainable, It is the perfect song with traditional mesmerizing beats and music that actually creates the mood of Mehendi during the ceremony.

  • Monica Choudhury

    Two famous songs- 1.Banno teri akhiyan surme danni.
    2.Gur naal ishq mitha.

  • Saba

    mehandi lagaongi main sajna ke naam ki…uber cool song…by vibha!

  • arpita

    Its mehndi ki raat aayi, mehndi ki raat….It has that girly feel of mehndi as well as the fun and celebration element….can dance on the lovely tune too….the other fav is mehndi hai rachne wali, hathon me gahri lali…enjoying with friends and dreaming about future..the real situation of a bridde during mehndi … :)

  • Alpana

    Mehendi laga ke rakhna, doli saja ke rakhna

  • Malvika Jain

    awai awai lut gaya from band baja barat

  • rachna

    hey malini,

    this ones by far the best…’jhin mini jhini’…from MAQBOOL!

  • Sagarika Bhattacharya

    ‘Mehndi hain rachne wali’ from Zubaida is my all time favorite. It depicts the sentiments behind the custom beautifully

  • Manju

    I love the song : “Chalka Chalka re, Kasle ka paani” From Saathiya.
    ya ya i known its nt a typical mehandi song, never the less its awesome bridal song, where in bride is trying to say-

    “My mom says dont go, bro, says plzz dnt leave, even dad says- sweethear just one day is left plzz dont go, but i m too eager to go n get my pot filled with water (cz the bride is planning to meet her grrom on panghat!)”

  • Kanupriya

    Therez rather ignored song from Zubeida- “Dheeme Dheeme gaau”, I infact like it more than Mehandi hai rachne waali. just listen to it gaian, its a lovely wedding song. i danced on it at my wedding, and every one loved it. The best thing about this song is it lends a kindda a grace and chame to the bride. its slow, but than that’s the whole point- Woo ing is all about slow right? ;)

  • Sarah

    I think you can go for a parody! whr u can have specific mehandi as well as, other songs.

    few choices for you:
    Haathon mein, inn haaton mein likh ke mehandi se Sajna ka naam, jisse padh ti hoon mai subha shamm

    I am sure u must have heard of Yeh rishta kya keh lata hai! there was this song in the serial – “Pyaar mil jaaye, piya ka, pyaar mi jaaye… hay re aisa pyaar mil jaaye” its very nice song, but is too traditional. u can google it, or if u want ill mail it to u :)

    than there is a very very classy song- “Piya Bavri” From deewar- just listen to the song once.
    ill summarize it for you : let my eyes absorbe you, let me sink u in my heart, i m deeply n madly in love wid you.
    And therez this line in the song- “Na mai dekhu aur ko, na tohe dekhne du” i just love this line. its kinnda romantic, naughty and oh just sooooo apt!

  • Poonam

    It can be a medley and I will be more than happy to even perform ;)

    peeche peeche anda meri chaal dena (remix)
    O Soni tenu chaand ki mein chudi pehnava
    jhoot bole kauwa kaante kalae kauwe se dariyo
    zor ka jhatka (action replay)
    chhan ke mohalla saara (action replay)
    mera laung gawacha (remix)
    jiya jale (Dil se)
    mein sasural nahi jaungi doll rakhdo kaharo (chaandni) if choreographed properly can be very funny & awesome
    no touching kissing..only seeing only seeing ;)
    ainwaiy ainwaiy loot gaya (band baja baarat)
    Baari Barsi (Band Baaja Baraat)

    I can go on with all the peppy songs which is sooo apt for Mehendi.

    Good Luck Malini, I am sure you will have a blast at your Mehendi & Wedding.

    This will be the only “The Great Blogger Wedding”


  • Kavya Seetala

    ”Mahi ve” from Kal ho naa ho…:)

  • Neeta

    My two fav. songs for your mehandi are:-

    1) ‘Thoda Sa Pagla’ from the movie ‘Aur Pyar Ho Gaya’
    2) ‘O Mehndi Rang Layee’ from the movie ‘Chal Mere Bhai’

  • Evan

    <3 Bumbro Bumbro – Mission Kashmir <3

  • Swati Kungwani

    one of my favs is a 90’s album-
    O gori naal ishiqo mita oho..
    O rabba lag na use dujave..
    Also laung da vacha..
    N the most groovy n peppy number would be the remixed version of “Mehendi ki raat aai , aai mehendi ki raat.. Dekhe koi pyaari dulhan(malini) ke haath”..:)
    Congrats n all the best ;)

  • Nidhi M

    Hi Miss Malini,

    I have to admit, no matter what, I still love the song from Zubeidaa, “Mehandi hain rachne waali.” But some of my other favorite mehandi songs include “Bajara da Sikka” from Veer-Zaara, as well as “Mele Challiyaan” from the movie Yaahan. Another favorite song is “Mujhe Saajan ke Ghar” from the movie Lajja. Hope this helps! :)

    you can dedicate this song to your spouse.

  • Ishita Nagpal

    Tera Rang Balle Balle from movie Soldier is good option for mehandi.

  • Jaya

    ooohh mehndi numbers.I think the plays list should start with traditional and sot breezy numbers like Mehndi hain rachne waali(Zubeida), Banno rani(1947 earth), sun sun goriya(Daman), etc. From there the mood should go to fun songs like Kawa kawa(monsoon wedding), bari barsi(traditional or from band baaja one), gal mithi mithi bol. and from there bring the tempo up with fun songs like Sas Kutni(punjabi fun no.), tera rang balle balle(soldier), aaj kal tere mere pyar ke charche(classic) and must must end with mehndi laga ke rakhna from DDLJ maybe with a stellar performance :)
