M F Husain is no more with us but he gave Bollywood two beautiful films Gaja Gamini and Meenaxi: A Tale of  Three Cities.

The music of both the films had an out-of-this-world charm about them, just like his paintings and strongly reflected his aesthetic faculties. The way his muses moved in the songs to the dream-like quality of the tunes, they were a reflection of a great artist.

Here, we look at some of songs form his film.

M F Husain's first feature film had his first muse Madhuri Dixit as the leading lady. Husain fell in love with Madhuri after watching Hum Aapke Hain Koun.
