Sex, Drugs and Dum Maro Dum


We don’t often do Bollywood around here. But when it’s super stylized, set in Goa, deals with marijuana, beautiful women, AND is a remake of the 1971 hit song Dum Maro Dum with the iconic Zeenat Aman, we’d be remiss if we didn’t bring it to you.

For your edification, here’s Deepika Padukone in Mit Jaaya Ghum, her item number in Rohan Sippy’s soon to be released film Dum Maro Dum. Lyrics not withstanding, it’s definitely worth a look. And because we want you to be fully versed in the school of Dum Maro Dum – which loosley translated means take another toke – we’ve got the original Bollywood bad girl version with Zeenat Aman.
