The festival of colours, enthusiasm and gaiety is just few weeks away from us. Holi is definitely incomplete without its traditional mouth watering delicacies and popular Bollywood Holi songs. Bollywood has captured different shades and moods of this colourful festival through a large number of songs produced in the industry over the years. Here we bring some songs for you right from the heart of the tinsel town that has been celebrating the festival of Holi for decades now.

Recalling few most famous Holi songs, the tune that first strikes our mind is Amitabh Bachchan's 'Rang Barse' from the film Silsila, that still makes us dance with the dhol beats and singing aloud with the crazy crowd around. This is one song that truly has all the essences to set your Holi ablaze.

Sholay's 'Holi Ke Din Rang' song captures our mind with how love bloomed between the real life lovers Dharmendra and Hema Malini. This colourful song makes us groove and dance with loads of entertainment and joy.

Big B's another very popular Holi song that makes this festive season complete is 'Holi Khele Raghuveera' from the film Baghban. 'Arey jare hat natkhat' comes from the film Navrang is yet another unforgettable song that rekindles our minds with actress Sandhna's inimitable dance steps where she played the role of both the male and female.

'Jai jai Shiv Shankar' from Aap Ki Kasam is one of the intoxicating track that still makes us groove to get along with the bhaang hangover during Holi.

The festival of colours used to be a wonderful triggering point for movies in the past. But in recent movies, the shades of the colourful festival is fading away. But might not in the reel life, the stars definitely has an age-old connection with Holi in real their real lives.
