Bolo Ta Ra Ra: The album is still considered the highest selling non-film music Indian pop album, with its the lead song becoming famous worldwide for Mehndi’s dance moves and the hook word ‘Hayo Rabba’.
Na Na Na Re: Shot for Amitabh Bachchan’s Mrityudaata, the hit song had Mehndi and Bachchan dance on dhols, much to the delight of their fans.
