Every year, Ganesh Chaturthi brings with it great joy, festive spirit and immense devotion. Amidst the religious ceremonies are the joyous processions – one has to attend this to truly experience the divine feeling. The highlight of the procession is a customary ‘Ganpati dance’ or dancing in the streets for Lord Ganesha. And one can’t forget Bollywood when it comes to singing and dancing! Here’s a list of top Bollywood songs that make every Ganpati dance memorable.
One can’t resist shaking a leg to the beats of this peppy number. It possibly became the most admired track of Judwaa 2. Varun Dhawan’s energetic moves and incredible expressions add a punch to this song. Sajid-Wajid’s foot-tapping music compels us to sing along and have fun as we dance in devotion of our mighty Ganpati!
Sung by Sukhwinder Singh, this track is bound to give you goosebumps every time you listen to it! The song expresses Ganesha’s grandeur in every possible way. The prayer song has great intensity and power in it. Its pulsating music creates an atmosphere that arouses our emotions for the Lord from within. The chant for the Elephant God echoes in our ears long after the song is over.
What makes this song special is the unusual setting – a rockstar performs on stage for his beloved Ganesha! The music is appealing and Riteish Deshmukh adds a fun element to it with his cool look. This track has a very different vibe from most of the Ganpati celebration songs. However, it strikes a chord with us and certainly makes us want to scream out ‘Ganpati Bappa Morya’!
This song from the Hrithik-starrer Agneepath is undoubtedly the most popular Ganeshotsav song of all times. It fills our hearts with love for Ganesha – the god of success, wealth, and new beginnings. Its powerful lyrics complement soul-stirring music, and the impact is truly magical. This song ensures high-octane energy and keeps you pumped up for the celebrations.
The audience loves it when Shahrukh Khan expresses his love on screen. In this song, he dances to express his love and devotion for Lord Ganesha, and everyone can feel the emotion. This song is a request to god to come back the next year. It is certainly a must-have song for every visarjan procession. Kudos to Shankar Mahadevan who has sung this melodious track with infectious energy!
No matter how many new songs we have on Lord Ganesha, this song from a 20-year-old movie remains one of our favourites. The aarti depicted in this song is so soothing that you want to listen to it on loop. As a devotee, one gets mesmerised by the majesty of the Lord. This soulful melody effectively captures the spirit of Ganeshotsav.
