While we wish for this multi talented persona to keep making music, here are the best Sanjay Leela Bhansali songs so far.
1. Tadap Tadap
The Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was the movie through which Bhansali won the nation’s heart. This track is still considered as one of the musical pinnacles depicting the pain of a broken heart.
2. Maar Daala
Devdas will forever remain one of the most sensational Indian films to have ever been created. The song ‘Maar Daala‘, picturised on the beautiful Madhuri Dixit in an all-green traditional attire, features the actress’ graceful moves as well as Shah Rukhb Khan’s soul stirring acting.
If anyone could do absolute justice to the fascinating Rajasthani dance Ghoomar, it was our very own Sanjay Leela Bhansali. While Deepika Padukone looked and moved like a dream, Bhansali’s creative genius made the song glamorous on a whole new level.
Guzaarish was the debut movie of Sanjay Leela Bhansali as a music director/composer and he definitely came in with a bang. ‘Udi‘ is an upbeat song which features Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looking like an angel in a red outfit.
5. Nagada Sang Dhol
‘Nagada Sang Dhol‘ was undoubtedly the highlight of the soundtrack of Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has a way of turning traditional-themed songs into awe-inspiring sequences. And he not only filled this track with mesmerizing visuals but also infectious dhol beats.
6. Jab Se Tere Naina
If you thought that Bhansali was only skilled at making historical or traditionally inspired numbers, then this song from Saawariya is here to make you think again. The then debutant, Ranbir Kapoor, stole the hearts of the ladies with his iconic towel dance, thanks to the expert director.
7. Dola Re Dola
It’s no wonder that one of the terrific songs to have ever been created in the history of Indian cinema is from the man himself. Featuring the two queens of grace and beauty Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the song will give you goosebumps even to this day.
