Watch: When actresses took to waterfalls in films
For an average Indian Bollywood buff, what images would a waterfall conjure? Think wet saris, picturesque surroundings and a young belle frolicking in the water, singing songs about youth and love.
Who can forget the famous scene from Raj Kapoor's Satyam Shivam Sundaram where a nubile village girl is bathing in a waterfall?
There are many instances where actresses have ditched dancing around trees and instead have done song sequences ranging from playful to seductive but let's start with Zeenat Aman.
