T is for Towel mein baahar jaaogi

Contrary to her innocent-looking face, Juhi Chawla sure has done a lot of crass stuff.

This song, from the 1994 movie Eena Meena Deeka is one of them (though not as bad as some others).

The songs starts off with her emerging from behind a curtain wearing nothing but a knotted top and a *gasp* TOWEL!

Except that the towel doesn't really look like a towel. Heroine hai aakhir, thoda embellishment toh mangta hai.

Rishi Kapoor seems to be wearing what was formerly her skirt.

He's also trying to stop her from going out because 'towel mein baahar jaaogi toh halla mach jaayega'.

And sure enough, halla has been machaoed amongst the (uniformed) mawalis.

And here's Rishi Kappor, channeling his inner Govinda more than Govinda himself channels his inner Govinda.

He also attempts to channel his inner Rajnikanth.

Yes, cows being milked is part of the beats in the song.

Juhi, I have no words for the choreography you were subjected to.

And then it's time for the annual sports day, featuring a very interesting tug of war.

Oh, at some point he actually pulls her towel-skirt off. Like, totally off her. I've spared you the gif. You're welcome.

Awww look, he's trying to protect her modesty by covering her towel... with HIS towel. (At least hers LOOKED like a skirt, you dhakkan.)

Very good. Marad towels are totally decent outerwear, no?

You guys go and watch this; I'm throwing in the towel.

This is the kind of song that makes you understand why people would go out for a smoke during songs.
