What a 'Bebo' is Lara?

NAMESAKE: Lara Dutta

After Kareena Kapoor’s nickname Bebo was used as a part of a song in her latest film Kambakkht Ishq, there’s another Bebo on the block. This time around, it is actress Lara Dutta in her brand new film Do Knot Disturb, where Riteish Deshmukh addresses her as Bebo in the song What A Bebo. But, wait a minute! There is a twist. This song has no connection to Kareena Kapoor and her nickname.

Director David Dhawan says, “This song has no relevance to Kareena’s name being Bebo.”

So why exactly did lyricist Sameer, music directors Nadeem-Shravan, director David Dhawan and actor Riteish Deshmukh come up with an idea of using the word Bebo? Is Bebo the new favourite element for a hit song? “Bebo is basically a Punjabi word which is often used in a romantic context to compliment a girl, especially on her looks, as is used in the song What A Bebo in Do Knot Disturb where Riteish is complimenting Lara by addressing her as Bebo,” explains David Dhawan. At a recently concluded awards function abroad, Riteish Deshmukh and Govinda even performed to the same song. But in this case, Govinda was surely not Riteish’s Bebo.
