The Disco Song – Student Of The Year
Karan Johar included this famous number from the ’80s in Student Of The Year during a dance competition sequence. Though the number has quite a few contestants along with the lead actors – Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra, the face between Sid and Varun cannot be missed. The two young actors are shown competing to get Alia’s attention.
Dola re Dola – Devdas
This famous number featuring dance number featuring Madhuri Dixit Nene and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan created history in Indian cinema. The song was choreographed by Saroj Khan and saw Paro (Aishwarya) and Chandramukhi (Madhuri) celebrating their love for Devdas. The two ladies matched steps with each other gracefully in this semi-classical dance number.
Dance of Envy – Dil Toh Pagal Hai
Again featuring Madhuri and Karisma Kapoor, this dance face off was one of the most important part of the film which also featured Shah Rukh Khan. In this number, Madhuri starts with slow classical dance moves, Karisma competes with her and raises the tempo. The sequence reaches a high point as the two try to out do each other to get SRK’s attention.
Aaj Ki Raat – Don
Featuring Priyanka Chopra, Isha Kopikkar and King Khan, this one is a peppy number. Aaj Ki Raat is shot in an underground night club where the plot takes an interesting twist. While all the three are dancing to this number, Isha and PeeCee try to woo Shah Rukh in this stylish number.
Que Sara Sara – Pukar
This energetic dance number featuring two dance legends in one frame is a treat to watch. On one side you have the Aja Nachle actress who can easily melt your hearts with her expressions, on the other you have a dance guru like the Prabhu Dheva who makes every move look effortless with his skills. Though this wasn’t a face off between the two, it is a memorable number featuring the two legends.
