Your wedding reception is a chance for you and your family to finally let your hair down and basically party the night away – you so deserve it after months of vigorous wedding planning! So, what is the key component to throwing a successful party? It’s all in the music of course. As 2015 is coming to an end, we thought we’d round up some of the year’s biggest Bollywood hits guaranteed to freshen up your playlist and ensure your guests stay glued to the dance floor.
Top 10 Bollywood tracks of 2015 for your wedding reception:
10. Dolly Ki Doli – Phatte Tak Nachna
Taken from a film all about weddings and picturised on the gorgeous Sonam Kapoor, this upbeat track in the vocals of Sunidhi Chauhan is both fun and catchy.
9. Welcome Back – Tutti Bole Wedding Di
Don’t focus too much on the lyrics of this song and just enjoy the music. In the vocals of Meet Bros and Shipra Goyal it’s sure to get your guests tapping their feet.
8. Queen – London Thumakda
This track actually released in 2014 but was still a favourite on the dance floor this year and so we just had to include it. Amit Trivedi did a fab job with this one alongside Labh Janjua, Sonu Kakkar and Neha Kakkar.
7. Phantom – Afgan Jalebi
Definitely the most popular track from the soundtrack and also picturised during a wedding scene, Afghan Jalebi struck a chord with the audiences as soon as it was released. Syed Asrar Shah lends his vocals to the Ya Baba version while Akhtar Channal sings on the film version.
6. Hero – Dance Ke Legend
This full on dance number is modern and edgy and features Meet Bros (who have had a fantastic year) and Bhoomi Trivedi. Though the film didn’t do as well as expected, this song was certainly a chartbuster.
5. Dil Dhadakne Do – Gallan Goodiyaan
Definitely one of the most underrated films of the year in our opinon. Exotic locations, slick styling and a string of A-listers certainly made this one appealing and this track bought all of that together. Featuring a whole host of voices including Farhan Akhtar himself, make sure you add it to your list.
4. Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Selfie Le Le Re
The selfie phenomenon is in full swing and Bollywood certainly used it to its advantage with this song. Of course it always helps when one of the biggest superstars on the planet is featuring in the video. Whether you like it or loathe it, it’s fair to say there was no escaping this one.
3. Tanu Weds Manu Returns – Banno
What a few years it’s been for Kangana Ranaut. This album was full of hits, but it’s Banno that caught everyone’s attention early on and we’re still loving it. This one features the voices of Brijesh Shandllya and Swati Sharma.
2. Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Aaj Ki Party
Bajrangi Bhaijaan not only dominated the box office but also the music charts. You want your wedding reception to be the party of the year, which means this track is an absolute must! And let’s face it, Mika Singh is certainly the flavor of the season.
1. Roy – Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan
There was no escaping this one in 2015. The film may have bombed but everyone was loving Jacqueline Fernandez looking all gorgeous and cute, but she’s not the only lady getting a lot of love. Kanika Kapoor came into her own with this one and it seems like there’s no going back for her now.
