Punjabi songs always add a different tune to your footsteps. They are always there to make you groove to their tunes. Yet, it was Bollywood who made them popular around the country. Over the past couple of years, a new trend has been emerging among the Tinsel-town. All you need is an old Punjabi song, a lyricist to convert few lyrics to Hindi and a remix song. Vola – a new song. Don’t believe us, here are the top 5 Bollywood Songs that are remake of Punjabi Songs.
Remember Katrina Kaif and Siddharth Malhotra grooving to ‘Kala Chashma’ in the movie ‘Baar Baar Dekho’? As it turns out, the very popular song was originally sung by Amar Arshi way back in the 1990s. Although most of the lyrics were changed, the original tune is still a part of the newer version. Still, most of us would prefer the newer version over the older one.
Nachange Saari Raat
Another of the Bollywood Punjabi Song Remakes, the song ‘Nachange Saari Raat’ from the movie ‘Junooniyat’ featured the hot sizzling chemistry between Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam as Meet Brothers, Neeraj Shridhar, and Tulsi Kumar weaved their magic to create a wonderful song, albeit a little help from the original soundtrack by Taz from Stereo Nation from the album ‘Oh! Laila’ back in the year 2000. But it is safe to say that the newer song reached the heights which the older version would never have achieved even if it had a greater appreciation.
Soch Na Sake
The song ‘Soch Na Sake’ from the movie Airlift being an instant hit among all the music lovers around the country. The very popular song was sung in the melodious voice of Arijit Singh and was picturized on Akshay Kumar and Nimrat Kaur. Although most of the people still prefer the original version sung by Hardy Sandhu over the newer one but still the latest version is a thing of beauty.
Main Tenu Samjhawaan Ki
One of the best Bollywood Remakes of Punjabi Songs, Arijit Singh did full justice to the immensely popular Punjabi version of the song with the same name sung by the legendary musician Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The song, a part of the movie ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ featured the upcoming actors Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan became a crowd favorite in short time since its release.
Remember the song ‘Rail Gaddi’ which the DJ would always play on every occasion. Be it your Birthday Party or a Marriage Celebration, the DJ won’t shy away from playing whenever a huge crowd gather on the dance floor. As fate had it, the popular song also became a part of Bollywood remakes of old Punjabi songs when the song was remade for the Prabhu Deva and Sonu Sood starrer- ‘Tutak Tutak Tutiya’. The song is an absolutely fun piece and with a really catchy tune really forces you to join the fun.
