"Woh Ladki Hai Kahan" (Hindi: वो लड़की है कहाँ?, English: Where's that Girl?) is a 2001 song from the movie Dil Chahta Hai, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, performed by Shaan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, and written by Javed Akhtar.


The track is frenzied Celtic music with bluegrass fiddling accustomed by Ehsaan's Acoustic guitar riffs and Flute. The song essentially launched singer Shaan's career, as it was the first hit of his career[1]

Music video[edit]

The song is known for its comical picturization, where choreographer Farah Khan pays tribute to Bollywood, for the first time. The song spoofs the 60s, 70s and 80s of Hindi Cinema in a completely unique and funny way through the immensely peppy and the already chartbuster song.[2] The scene features Sameer played by Saif Ali Khan and Sonali Kulkarni who plays Pooja, going into a theater playing a musical, and sees them in screen instead. The song pays homage to the 60s 70s and 80s as it progresses.[3]
