Any important function takes place in a Hindu household by worshipping Lord Ganesha. Here’s the list of some of the evergreen Ganpati songs that will set the perfect mood for this festival.
MORYA RE FROM DON(2006):-
Sung by Shankar Mahadevan the song ‘Mourya Re’ stars Shah Rukh Khan. The track perfectly captures the essence of Ganesh Chaturthi. In the song, the Badshah of Bollywood takes to streets of Mumbai and dances with the crowd as the deity is being taken for ‘visarjan’. The lively song is full of colors and sets the festive mood.
SUNO GANPATI BAPPA MORYA FROM JUDWAA 2:-
As Judwaa 2 is a comedy-drama, this song marking the entry of actor Varun Dhawan is also a fun and lively one. Unlike other songs that give us a traditional and devotional feel, this song is a light-hearted one where Varun seeks Bappa’s help.
BAPPA FROM BANJO:-
This song is a kind of fusion of aarti and rock music. The song features actor Riteish Deshmukh grooving on the beats of the song and praising Ganpati Bappa. He also shows off a picture of Ganpati painted on his palms.
SADDA DIL VI TU FROM ABCD:-
The dance group in the movie Any Body Can Dance (ABCD), directed by Remo D’souza, credited their victory to Lord Ganesha. It had the best music and since the film was based on a dance team, it also had the best choreography.
DEVA SHREE GANESHA FROM AGNEEPATH:-
The high-octane song is pictured on Hrithik Roshan and is sung by Ajay Gogavale. The foot-tapping shows the intense enthusiasm with which Ganesh Utsav is celebrated in Maharashtra. High on beats, the popular number – Deva Shree Ganesha – will keep you hooked till the end. The lyrics of the heart-touching track are penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. The song is composed by Ajay-Atul.
This is some of this song which is really worth to make you go crazy and enjoy the festival to the fullest.
