Mere Naam Tu from Zero: This magical song will leave you mesmerised and wins your heart by bringing romance. Ajay-Atul’s spellbinding music literally lights up the spirit of true love. From its soul-stirring lyrics to its soothing melody, the soulful love ballad is just beautiful.
Tere Bin from Simmba: This romantic song surely touches your heart. The remake of (late) Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s classic Tere Bin Nahin Lagda is a soothing number about love. It’s a hit with all who are romantic at heart and great to serenade your loved one.
Dil Laga Liya Maine from Dil Hai Tumhaara: A great throwback song sung by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan. My all-time favourite super hit love song and known to be used as an entrance song for many brides. This song maintains the theme of love expressed and is still easy on the ears.
Dil Diyan Gallan from Tiger Zinda Hai: The ultimate romantic ballad sung by Atif Aslam has everything a love bug could hope for. The lyrics are dripping with love and are no less than poetry.

Tum Hi Ho from Aashiqui 2: A romantic anthem. The music composition by Mithoon gave the song a magical flow. The touching song left those with the beating hearts addicted to it. The soulful crooning and melodious voice of Arijit Singh added to the effect.
Kaun Tujhe from MS Dhoni – The Untold Story: The romantic love ballad from Palak Muchhal is soulful, melodious, emotional and really touched my heart. This song really makes you feel in love. The romantic vibes with soft ambient flutes, keyboard, chimes and violins are stunning.
