It was way back in 1966 when Vijay Anand

was released. The film turned out to be a smash success and remains popular till date. While ‘O Haseena Zulfonwali Jaane Jahan’ and ‘Aaja Aaja Mein Hoon Pyar Tera’ remain popular till date, courtesy Mohammad Rafi
’s exuberant singing, R.D. Burman
’s foot-tapping score, Majrooh Sultanpuri
’s catchy lyrics and of course Shammi Kapoor
’s dance moves, one track which continues to make for a melodic hear is Asha Bhosle
’s ‘O Mere Sona Re Sona Re’.
Now in the 50th year anniversary of Teesri Manzil
, the film’s leading lady Asha Parekh
has paid a tribute of sorts to the Nasir Hussain
musical. The 73 year old veteran actress, who continues to make social appearances, has just made her debut on Dubsmash. The song that she chose? ‘O Mere Sona Re Sona Re’.
