My first DG was Amala. From 'Satya' until 'Kodi Parakkudhu,' she was awesome; after that, she became horribly thin and faded away from my thoughts slowly. She was replaced, strangely, Kimi Katkar. I first saw her in the movie ‘Abhimanyu’, which was the remake of our ‘Sakalakala vallavan’. She looked very gorgeous and stunning in that movie and for a few years (until Hum) she was my DG.
Then, one day in early 90’s, I saw the ad for Pepsi.. a cute girl said ‘Hi, I am Sanjana.. can I have a pepsi plz?’ to Aamir Khan and that was it. She was one of the 5 most beautiful girls I have ever seen. Yeah yeah you know who she is.. she was my DG until I saw Sonali Bendre in ‘95.
That was the time the internet was booming up; she was the girl whose pictures were the most famous in the web.
In ’96, I saw ‘Tere mere sapne’ in which Priya Gill was introduced, along with Simran. She acted as a Tamil girl in the movie. I was totally lost.
Then came 'Keerthi Reddy'.. a special one.. she was the only actress to whom I have sent a fan letter.. ;-)
Next year, the mettle was passed to Mahima Choudhary, who was deadly in Pardes,after a great ad for Wills during World cup '96..
Lisa Ray replaced her soon. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's album 'Afreen' shown on DD those times was such a lovely song.
As you can see, mid 90's had me drooling over 5 beauties; the transition from teenage to the 20's.. It was inevitable.. ;-)
After that, love happened and research also took over. Still, few other girls to be my DG of late are.. Divya Khosla and Tamanna.
