Crazy Kiya Re, Dhoom 2 (2006)

She sure was the sexy lady on the floor. Effortlessly pulling off the moves in this song. Her eyes do the talking in most parts of the song rendered by Sunidhi Chauhan. She is paired opposite Hrithik Roshan in this Sanjay Gadhvi directorial.

Nanare, Guru (2007)

This famous peppy number was on every playlist back then and the iconic dance step was recreated whenever it rained.
