Written by Shivangi Jalan | New Delhi | Published: December 30, 2017 6:30 am Here’s a playlist of the best Bollywood songs for 2017.
2017 may have been a dull year for Bollywood releases but it definitely wasn’t the same for the Hindi music industry. From foot-tapping dance numbers to soulful romantic tracks, B-town’s singers gave us a dose of everything. Among the top singers for the year were the regulars like AR Rahman, Atif Aslam, Arijit Singh but even new voices like Akhil Sachdeva and Parineeti Chopra gained recognition.
While the best songs of the year are majorly dominated by romantic numbers like “Ban Ja Rani” from Tumhari Sulu, “Humsafar” from Badrinath Ki Dulhani, “Nazm Nazm” from Bareilly Ki Barfi, even peppy numbers such as “Sweety Tera Drama” from Bareilly Ki Barfi also find place in the list.
Here’s a best of 2017 playlist, specially curated for you to rewind through the year (in no particular order).
Ban Ja Rani – Guru Randhawa
Guru Randhawa’s track from Tumhari Sulu has been picturized on Vidya Balan and Manav Kaul. It is composed by Randhawa and Rajat Nagpal and voiced by Randhawa himself. While Randhawa already has hits like “Suit Suit” and “High Rated Gabru” to his credit, “Ban Ja Rani” has a slightly different tenderness attached to it.
Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahi – Parineeti Chopra and Sonu Nigam
Every best songs list is incomplete without the mention of Sonu Nigam’s stirring voice. And that is exactly the game changer in this reworked duet version of the original Parineeti song. The lyrics that have been penned by Kausar Munir beautifully tell the tale of two ex-lovers trying to escape their feelings.
