Yami Gautam is one of the most talented upcoming actresses in Bollywood. Her last big release was Kaabil, with Hrithik Roshan. Gautam isn’t just a talented actress, she’s a great dancer as well. If you have any doubt about that previous sentence, here’s a list of the best Yami Gautam songs – in the short career that she’d had until now.
Top Yami Gautam Songs
- Nachenge Saari Raat (Junooniyat)
A disco anthem that has a following of its own until today. The song is a remix, but Yami’s dance steps add a special note to this one. This is a party song and has Pulkit Samrat matching step to step with Yami. A bubbly, young song that is a quick addition to this list.
- Sawan Mein Lag Gayi Aag (Ginny Weds Sunny)
Ginny Weds Sunny is a Yami Gautam Vikrant Massey starrer that was lost to the pandemic. While the audience has forgotten the movie, the dance fans have welcomed with open arms this remix for several reasons. One, the original composer, Mika, is part of it. There’s Badshah with his wicked lyrics and there are Vikrant Massey and Yai Gautam doing some sick dance moves.
- Mon Amor (Kaabil)
Yami Gautam is popular for her dance-centric songs, but she can shake a leg in traditional dance forms when it comes to that. In Kaabil, Yami has an exquisite dance piece with none other than Hrithik Roshan. Yami Gautam gives a stunning performance in this movie and is one of her best movies until now.
- Lol (Ginny Weds Sunny)
LOL is a wedding song in Ginny Weds Sunny, is a classic synchronized dancing with background dancers mixing a beat with the lead. The Punjabi lyrics are laced with sarcasm and create the perfect atmosphere for Yami to show off some contemporary and classic dance steps.
- Don’t Be Shy My Honey (Bala)
This is Yami’s third song with Badshah in this list, but that’s only because they are that good together. This is a remix of a classic nineties song and features Ayushmann Khurrana. Don’t Be Shy My Honey is a typical Bollywood crowd song, one of the most difficult ones to choreograph. In these songs, if the actor or the actress doesn’t have a screen presence, they might lose themselves in the crowd – even if the choreographer places them front and centre. But Yami and Ayushmann pull this off like only they can.
Gautam has several more movies and many more dance steps in her career. She’s talented and is taking on the right movies. Here’s wishing that we see much more Yami Gautam than we are seeing, post the pandemic.
