It’s the time to get ready for gujiya, gulaal and water guns. Holi is almost here! If you’re planning a super party this year, make sure you have your playlist ready. Thank Bollywood for giving us songs for every last occasion. Here are some Holi songs that we’ve all grown up with and others that are new on the list. Here we go!
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone sizzle to this alluring tune while being drenched in color from head to toe. From the coming of age love story Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, this number will add an element of exultation to your Holi party.
The iconinc Mohobbatein track stood for more than Holi, it stood for love with all its mischief and quarrels. And ahem, SRK looks more than adorable in those glasses. Raj Aryan rebelled against rules and we got an awesome Holi anthem.
Holi Khele Raghuveera
Baghbaan made for heart touching cinema but also had in its milieu this foot-tapping, color splashing Holi track. Our parents like this number more than us owing to Amitabh Bachchan’s presence but we can dance to it too.
Holi Ke Din
As iconic as it gets, Holi ke din dil khil jaate hain is from the Sholay fame which makes it an unforgettable addition to our Holi playlist. Featuring the then Jaya Bhaduri, Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini and Dharmendra, the song emphasizes on spreading love along with colors on this vibrant festival.
Silsila track Rang barse bheege chunar vaali will make every last person get on their feet, even the most ‘touch-me-not-I-hate-holi’ group. Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha and Jaya Bachchan made this song go down in history and no holi bash is complete without it.
Let’s Play Holi
Even the most ardent Anu Malik haters won’t be able to keep themselves from humming this tune. ‘Uff yeh Holi, Haaye yeh Holi’ still echoes in my head while I write this and will definitely up your Holi enthusiasm as well. Featuring superstars Priyanka Chopra and Akshay Kumar, this is another Holi must have.
Lahu Muh Lagg Gaya
This one’s for the romantics spending the day with their lover. Real life lovers Deepika and Ranveer’s chemistry is palpable in the entire song which looks nothing less than a dream sequence. Add this track to your playlist for some sensual color play!*wink*
