Honestly, we don’t know how to start. Words fail us to describe the man who made Indian cinema so much appreciated. Amitabh Bachchan has ruled our hearts for decades. If you’re asking us to pick one of his best performances, it’s just not possible. Be it drama, romance or action, Amitabh Bachchan has excelled in all genres. The veteran actor turns 80 today. Our social media feeds are awash with the heartiest birthday wishes for the megastar. To celebrate this special day we decided to play some of the best songs with Amitabh Bachchan again.
1. Dekha Ek Khwab-Silsila
This iconic Yash Chopra song Silsila has captivated generations time and time again. We really don’t need a reason to play this track by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.
2. Jumma Chumma De De – Hum
This upbeat number still dominates our party playlists after so many years. It’s hard to stay off the dance floor the moment we hear it Boom…boom…boom…boom.
3. Khaike Paan Banaras Wala – Thu
Amitabh Bachchan, the legendary Kishore Kumar and the famous Banaras Ka Paan all rolled into one. That’s it. What else do you need? This song especially has the power to cheer you up even on those gloomy days.
4. Kabhi Kabhi-Kabhi Kabhie
Here is a soulful rendition by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar that touches our whole heart. This beautiful song featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Rakhee is an all time favorite romantic number.
5th place Barse – Silsila
Another song from the movie Silsila waiting for your attention. We cannot thank Amitabh Bachchan enough for blessing us with this fundamental Holi number. I hope you know it was sung by the actor himself.
6. Ke Pag Ghungaroo Baandh – Namak Halal
Be it the golden voice of Kishore Kumar or the charm of Amitabh Bachchan, the song is an absolute entertainer.
7) My name is Anthony Gonsalves – Amar Akbar Anthony
Amitabh Bachchan already stole the show when he emerged from this giant Easter egg. The best thing about this song is: “Dil Bhi Hai Khaali… Ghar Bhi Hai Khaali… Ismein Rahegi, Koi Kismat Wali.”
8) Mere Angane Mein Tumhara Kya Kaam Hai – Laawaris
A list of Amitabh Bachchan songs cannot be complete without this masterpiece sung by the actor himself.
9) Dilbar Mere Kab Tak Mujhe – Satte Pe Satta
It’s not just a song, it’s an emotion. Most of us have sung to this number at some point in our lives to express the state of our hearts. Do not forget “ek din aayegaa, pyaar ho jaayegaa”.
10) Jahan Teri Yeh Nazar Hai-Kaalia
Can we call it a party song for generations to come? All thanks to the amazing trio – RD Burman, Kishore Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan.
This basic friendship song needs no introduction. After all, it’s Jai-Veeru and dosti.
We know it’s difficult to put the best songs on one list, but we tried. Hope you liked it. Let us know in the comments.
