Tulsi Kumar:                                                                            

She loves monsoon and the entire romantic vibe that we all can experience in this lovely weather. “I love a lot of monsoon songs like the cult classic Rimjhim Gire Saawan by Lata ji n Kishore da, which really carries a strong melody along with the monsoon vibe in the lyrics.  The second being, Rimjhim Rimjhim Rumjhum Rumjhum Bheegi Bheegi Rut Mein from the film 1942 A Love Story carries the vibe of sheer romance in the monsoon season,” says Tulsi. However, the song that comes to her mind instantly with the word monsoon is Tip Tip Barsa Paani from the film Mohra.

Jonita Gandhi:

The sound of rain is soothing and therapeutic for Jonita and she thinks any mellow romantic song would complement the feeling of hearing the rain and looking out of the window. “My Bollywood picks would be O Saathi Re (Omkara) and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai (Meenaxi),” states Jonita.

Shalmali Kholgade:

Shalmali said she loves driving in the rain and she loves how she feels through a particular song. “My favourite monsoon song is Safar from Jab Harry Met Sejal as of now. It's got an acoustic guitar riff that lines the song beautifully. I love how the melody isn't repetitive and full of character. It feels like the road I'm driving on is endless,” says Shalmali.

Tanvi Shah:

The first Indian woman who won a Grammy for ‘Jai Ho’ said she likes Rain by Madonna because it was the first time she tasted chai with her maternal grandmother. “We used to talk about how tea and samosas taste better on a rainy day.... she then used to let us just run into the garden and get all drenched and jump around in the puddles,” added Tanvi. She also likes Megha Re Megha from Lamhe, which is a perfect song for this monsoon.  

Monica Dogra:

Popular singer Monica Dogra also The Stage judge’s favourite monsoon song is Taal by AR Rahman.  “It sounds so liquid and lovely. It's ambient but still exciting.  AR Rahman is my all time favourite,” states Monica on the same.

Sophie Chaudhary:

It's always hard for a singer to pick just one song because they love so many. That’s what happened with Sophie Chaudhary. She has too many favourites. Naming them she states, “One is Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein, the killer combination of Pancham Da, Anand Bakshi, Kishore Da and Lata Ji is absolutely magical! It's romantic and beautiful at the same time and that's what the Monsoons are to me. Another favourite is Tip Tip Barsa Paani. It is the most sensuous rain song ever. I love the melody but it's the visuals that brought the song to life even more."

Akriti Kakkar:

My heart My life from Night by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Micheal Brook has been Akriti’s favourite. She was introduced to this about five years back and it's still what comes to her mind with the first downpour.  “This song transports me to my own fantasyland. It’s so sublime yet powerful that it's almost like a spell. This version of the famous qawwali Tu Mera Dil Tu Meri Jaan is taken to another level with Micheal Brook's treatment,” says Akriti. Come Away With Me by Norah Jones is another favourite for Akriti. “Her voice is just something else.. so inspiring..perfect marriage with a rainy day,” adds Akriti.

Pawni Pandey:

Monsoon for Pawni is fun, beautiful and romantic and she finds all these things these songs Ghanan Ghanan, Barso Re Megha and Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein. “They have the perfect flavour of the season,” states Pawni.
