Whether it is Ganesh Chaturthi or Janmashtami, festivals have always found its special place in Bollywood films. This time, we are celebrating the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi with sweets, modaks, singing and dancing. And for that, we present you the top 5 contemporary Hindi songs of the elephant headed-god.
Sadda Dil Vi Tu from ABCD - Any Body Can Dance (2013)
In Prabhu Deva's ABCD, a song titled as 'Sadda Dil Vi Tu' is not only a visual joy, but also an upbeat and foot-tapping number. Sachin-Jigar has composed the song on a high note, and Hard Kaur has introduced a bit of rock-version into the Ganpati aarti which works superbly well. Both of them have made it a hatke track without losing any of its devotional value.
Deva Shree Ganesha from Agneepath (2012)
Singer Ajay Gogavale's powerful voice makes this devotional song, Deva Shree Ganesha, as a treat for the ears. Composer Ajay-Atul has used the nagada brilliantly in this number from the Hrithik Roshan starrer film Agneepath. And not to forget, the last minute of the song will certainly take you on a high-note with its repetitive aarti chants!
Tera Hi Jalwa from Wanted (2008)
Sung by Wajid, the song 'Tera Hi Jalwa' features Salman Khan in lead and is yet again from Prabhu Deva's super-hit film 'Wanted'. It's an ideal song to let your hair down and rejoice the festival, just like Sallu does in the movie. The track has a very desi touch to it, which is why it had turned out to be an instant popular among street urchins, taporis and community celebrations.
Morya Re from Don (2006)
This song from the Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Don:The Chase Begins' is an energetic number and has been sung by Shankar Mahadevan. It's the perfect number for the occasion and will get you grooving to the beats in an honor of Ganpati.
Shree Ganeshay Dheemanhi from Viruddh (2005)
The song "Shree Ganeshay Dheemanhi" from the 2005 film 'Viruddh... Family Comes First' was selected from one of the Stavanas of Lord Ganesha from Marathi music maestro Ajay-Atul. It's quite simple and can be defined as the form of Aarti for Ganpti Bappa.
