    ^ And of course with "lenaa" too.

    What do Hindi speakers think about bosaa denaa/lenaa? Is it used by them?

    Yes, "bosaa" is understood and used in Hindi; it's just less frequent (though quite frequent in modern Bollywood).

    I've usually heard chuumaa in Bollywood. I can't recall bosaa being used.

    ^ There is the famous "barso re megha" song from the film Guru that uses it; there are a few others as will in the recent past. "chumma" was quite popular in the '80s and early '90s (as in Hum's superhit song "jumma, chumma de de" [give me a kiss on {this} Friday]).

    Can you provide any examples from "modern Bollywood" or Bollywood of any age?

    ^ Was that for "bosaa" in post 7?

    Yes, the song "barso re meghaa" contains the words "baarish kaa bosaa" (I just listened on youtube).

    ^ Thank you. In post 7, first sentence you must be reading "it" as "bosaa" and not "chummaa" then. I am reading it as "chummaa".
