The Best Bollywood Wedding Songs

Can there be a shaadi without Baraatis ? And what does a great baraat need more than some great music ? How about the sangeet ? Or the mehndi ? Or the bidaai ? Wait, music is like everywhere during a wedding, and since you can neither avoid it nor ignore it (if you’re the 1% of people who doesn’t like music) , you might as well choose the best picks to listen to !

Bollywood, for all it’s overpaid stars worth, has still given society something other than the usual fashion inspiration – music !
Imagine naach gaana without hindi film music, or imagine a typical mehndi ceremony without the classic “Mehndi lagane ke rakhna”, I for one, just can’t . For all my love for Western music, nothing sets me grooving at a wedding more than our traditional bhangra, folk and bolly tunes .
