Her Story: Bye-Bye! - 3

A hit song from "Love In Tokyo" (1966) that fits in the "Bye-Bye" situation. This was a very successful film at its time. It was almost entirely shot on location in Japan...a rarity in those days.

Trivia: In this film, Asha Parekh's hair was tied with a fastener that had two large beads on a rubber band. After the film's release, this little thingy became a rage amongst girls and young women. When they shopped for hair accessories, they would simply ask for a Love-in-Tokyo!

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Lyrics: Hasrat Jaipuri
Music: Shankar Jaikishan

Postscript: The most obvious song which could have been featured in this situation is 'Achchha to hum chalte hain' from 'Aan Milo Sajna' (1970). There are many. 'Jaati hoon main, jaldi hai kya' from 'Karan Arjun' (1995), 'Dhal gaya din ho gayi sham' from 'Humjoli' (1970), 'Saathiya nahin jaana' from 'Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke' (1969) and 'Jaane do na, jaane jaane do na' from 'Cheeni Kum' (2007). But we can only have so many. We do have to move on with the story!
