When a friend of mine got married a few years ago, she re-created the Filmfare Awards night for her sangeet party. And it was everything that a Bollywood-mad girl could dream of – right from awards for favourite relatives to a hip-shaking playlist for when things heated up on the dance floor.
For brides and grooms like her, who just can’t get enough of the likes of Vishal-Shekhar, the Meet Bro and Badshah (among others), here’s a list of 2016’s biggest hits to groove to on the dance floor:
Cutiepie, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
It might have been sung by a friendzoned guy. For his crush. At her wedding. Yet Cutiepie has a happy beat and quirky flash mob-friendly moves to try. Sister of the bride, take note.
Kar Gayi Chull, Kapoor & Sons
This one’s a party song that will get every tipsy friend and cousin (even that stuck-up, foreign return one who only listens to EDM) on the dance floor.
Kala Chashma, Baar Baar Dekho
This early 2000s song has enough of a nostalgic pull, which, since it’s paired with dance beats from the 2010s, is a must-add to your shaadi playlist.
Khulke Dhulke, Befikre
A fun Punjabi number, it’ll revive flagging spirits on the dance floor.
Gal Ban Gayi, Gal Ban Gayi
What’s a wedding without at least one Sukhbir song? Forget Oh Ho Ho ho (Ishq Tera Tadpave) and dance to this 21st century version of his Gal Ban Gayi instead.
Nachde Ne Saare, Baar Baar Dekho
It’s that cute song even your mom will enjoy dancing to.
Akkad Bakkad, Sanam Re Ft. Badshah
Don’t go by the video; this is a foot-tapping song featuring Badshah and that popular dhink-chak beat that makes it instantly likable.
Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai, Sultan
One of 2016’s biggest hits, it’s got to be played at least twice in the night for your sangeet to be a success.
High Heels Te Nachche, Ki & Ka
Just like Akkad Bakkad, this song’s got a fun dhin chak beat, plus Yo Yo Honey Sigh’s insane rap lyrics that appeal to everyone’s inner desi dancer. Even that foreign return cousin. In fact, he will be killing it on the dance floor by now.
Let’s Nacho, Kapoor & Sons
It’s a full-on Bollywood item number, and the rules state that no such song shall be left of a wedding playlist. Capisce?
