Ganpati Bappa Moraya: 5 songs that perfectly capture the spirit of Ganesh Chaturthi!
Ganesh Chaturthi has begun and as we all know, Bollywood has songs for every occasion and festival. This auspicious time of the year, which was primarily acknowledged in Maharashtra, is now being celebrated in different parts of the world. To make your Ganesh Chaturthi festivities a little more fun, we have put together a list of our favourite Ganesha songs.
So here are top 5 most memorable Bollywood songs dedicated to Ganesha
- Deva Shree Ganesh
Composed by musical duo Ajay-Atul, this song perfectly captures the essence of the festival. Featuring in the film Agneepath, it is picturized on Hrithik Roshan who is seen performing the aarti in front of a magnificent Ganesha idol. With its upbeat music and powerful lyrics, it is an all-time favourite.
- Mourya Re
This song is from the film Don and is composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. Picturized on Shah Rukh Khan, it has been written by Javed Akhtar and sung by Shankar Mahadevan. It is the kind of song that not only has a great tune to it but also gets everyone dancing. You will surely be hearing at every pandal in the city.
- Gajanana Gajanana
This devotional song from the film Bajirao Mastani is apt for aartis. Sung by the amazing Sukhwinder Singh, it has a great impact with the typical Marathi touch to it. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has given a great twist to the traditional aarti making it a powerful one.
- Sadda Dil Vi Tu
From the film ABCD, Sadda Dil Vi Tu is a fusion of Punjabi lyrics with a rap and some hip hop beats. It is a much modern version of how Ganesha songs have usually been shown in movies but is a great one nonetheless. The choreography is superlative and makes the song not only an audio but a visual delight as well.
- Hey Ganraya
After ABCD, the makers incorporated another spectacular Ganesha song in the sequel as well which featured Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor. Composed by Sachin-Jigar, the song is a soft one which picks up pace in the latter half making it perfect to sing and dance to. Needless to say, the choreography is mind blowing.
