The festival of colours, Holi, is akin to Bollywood; it celebrates vividity, joy, the triumph of good over evil and spring – the season of love. Over the years we have seen megastars like Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha, Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, Ranbir Singh and Deepika Padukone and more recently, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt dance on the catchiest Holi tunes from their movies. Amongst the many, we list our top favourite tunes you can enjoy exclusively on various Spuul music channels, all day long!
Rang Barse – Silsila
Yash Chopra’s Silsila from 1981 was a controversies child owing to its story that was a spitting image of true events from the actors’ lives. The love triangle between Amitabh, Jaya and Rekha was a spectacle to behold. The song ‘Rang Barse’ where Amitabh has too much bhaang and teasingly dances with Rekha, while their respective partners look on, will forever remain a historic Holi song.
Holi Ke Din – Sholay
Offscreen lovers, Dharmendra and Hema Malini didn’t have to try too hard to look like lovers in the 1975 drama, Sholay. This iconic blockbuster where Viru and Basanti share hilarious moments and adorable chemistry became a benchmark for various characters in the years to come. In the song‘Holi Ke Din’ while the village celebrates love and laughter, Gabbar is planning his next attack! Holi kab hai? Kab hai Holi?!
Ang Se Ang Lagana – Darr
This 1993 classic thriller starring Shahrukh, Juhi and Sunny Deol evokes goosebumps every single time you watch it! While Shahrukh’s character stalks Juhi’s, Sunny plays the knight in shining armour. In the song “Ang se ang lagana” Shahrukh creepily enters a Holi party just to stare at Juhi and colours his face in disguise. Our heart races, when in the end he utters “K k k k Kiran”.
Let’s play Holi – Waqt
They say Akshay Kumar and Priyanka Chopra had a thing for each other at one point. No wonder they don’t really work together anymore? These two have done a dozen movies together and their chemistry was beyond the clouds. Anu Malik crooning “Do me a favour, let’s play Holi” in the movie Waqt saw these two dancing and having fun like they belonged. Uff yeh Holi.
Balam Pichkari – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Two past lovers decided to get professional and work on Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, but they made the screen sizzle like never before! Ranbir and Deepika will forever hold a special place in all our hearts and with ‘Balam Pichkari’ that special place now has a background score! It’s hard to stop singing this number even when it’s not Holi and if you’re a true Bollywood fan like us, you know ALL the steps to this song at the back of your head! Itna mazaa kyu aa raha hai?
Badri Ki Dulhania – Badrinath Ki Dulhania
We all know that Alia and Varun are BFFs, so their onscreen understanding is outstanding! From their first film together to their upcoming movie KALANK, they have starred opposite each other more than they have worked with anyone else. It’s no surprise that they’re amazing together. Dancing on the tunes of “Badri Ki Dulhania” we can’t help but notice the notorious smiles and laughter they share, it’s like they’re actually having fun. HOLI HAI!!
