Mera Naam Chin Chin Choo │ Salaam Bombay!

 Shafiq Syed

Geeta Dutt

One of the coolest scenes in Mira Nair's "Salaam Bombay!" is when Shafiq Syed (Krishna/Chaipau), dances "Mera Naam Chin Chin Choo (My Name Is Chin Chin Choo)", with a young friend.  It is absolutely charming and irresistible.  Unfortunately though, few people remember where that delightful song came from.  Well, it was from the 1958 movie "Howrah Bridge", that starred the great Indian actress/singer  Geeta Dutt.  In this edition of Angel Watchers I am featuring the original version of "Mera Nam Chin Chin Choo" from "Howrah Bridge", with the immortal Geeta Dutt singing and dancing for your amazement and enjoyment.  Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.
