Friendship Day Special: Bollywood songs that you can dedicate to your friends on this special day


By: Murtuza Nullwala

Friends are the most important people in our lives. Things that we can’t share with our family members, we share it with our friends. A jingle of a popular global telecommunications services company says, ‘Har ek friend zarori hota hai…’ and well, we quite agree with it.

In Bollywood, we have seen many films where friendship plays a very pivotal part and some films are based on two friends itself. Today, as the world celebrates Friendship Day let’s look at some of the songs that you can dedicate to your friends on this special day…

Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge (Sholay)

When we talk about songs revolving around friendship, the first one that comes to our mind is the track Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge from Sholay. Jai and Veeru’s friendship was the highlight of the film and the lyrics of this track surely stole everyone’s hearts, Yeh dosti hum nahi todenge, todenge dam magar, tere saath na chodenge…

Tere Jaisa Yaar Kahan (Yaarana)

Tere jaisa yaar kahan, kaha aisa yaarana naa, yaad karegi duniyan, tera mera afsana… This song from 1981 release Yaarana was a big hit when the film released and it is one of the evergreen songs of Bollywood. The movie featured Amitabh Bachchan and Amjad Khan, and it focused on what friends can do for each other.

Yaaron (KK single)

In the late 90s when pop songs were the rage, there was a beautiful song sung by singer KK titled Yaaron. It was about the friendship and featured the filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor in it. Well, the lyrics of the track actually gave out the true meaning of friendship, Yaaron dosti badi hi haseen hai, yeh na hoto kya fir bolo yeh zindagi…

Dil Chahta Hai title track

One of the best films made on friendship in Bollywood is Dil Chahta Hai. Starring Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna, the movie made us wish we had friends like them. The Farhan Akhtar directorial is still loved by people and we cannot forget the title track of the movie, Dil chahta hai, kabhi na beetein chamkile din, dil chahta hai, hum na rahe kabhi, yaaron ke bin…  By the way, after watching this track, we all feel like going on a road trip with our friends.

Jaane Kyun (Dostana)

2008 release Dostana might be remembered for being the first mainstream movie to talk about homosexuality (though in a funny way), but we cannot ignore that the movie also focused on the friendship that Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, and Priyanka Chorpa shared. The track Jaane Kyun from the film showcases how friendship develops between the three characters. And of course, the wonderful lyrics, Jaane kyu dil jaanta hai, tu hai toh I’ll be alright.

Tera Yaar Hoon Main (Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety)

While watching Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, we laughed out loud a lot of times, but it was the climax that made our eyes teary with emotions. The song Tera Yaar Hoon Main that comes in the climax of the film made everyone emotional. The lyrics of the song made everyone remember their childhood friends, Tu hi wajah, tere bina bewajah bekar hoon main, tera yaar hoon main, tera yaar hoon main…
