Movies that are famous for their iconic dance songs

You might think you know exactly how to bust those Bollywood dance moves – but, trust us, it’s best left to the professionals. Here we’ve picked some of the most memorable and jaw-dropping dance scenes from Bollywood movies old and new.

1. Lagaan (2001)

Renowned choreographer Saroj Khan took this rustic, evocative melody by double Oscar and double Grammy winner AR Rahman, and created a visual masterpiece to match. Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and co-star Gracy Singh twirled, jumped, and shimmied to perfection while performing the song "Radha Kaise na Jale."



2. Devdas (2002)
Bollywood doesn’t get any better than this energetic dance performed on screen in ‘Devdas’ by the two reigning divas of the time, Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai. Dance director Farah Khan dressed the two women in white chiffon saris, and each circled the other, intent on outperforming her counterpart. The result is a camp and colourful visual treat unsurpassed to this day.


3. Dabangg (2010)
In 2010 the competition between ‘item songs’ in Bollywood movies reached its peak as filmmakers tried to push the taste barriers as far as they could. Malaika Arora’s ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ proudly proclaimed that she was indeed the most gorgeous performer with the song and was acclaimed with love from her fans.


4. Bajirao Mastani (2015)
The ruling queens of Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Deepika Padukone, both of whom are now also making waves in Hollywood, delighted audiences with this emotive sequence that sees the pair dance off in similar sarees in the song "Pinga."


5. Baar Baar Dekho (2016)
The song Kala Chashma became a thing for everyone when this movie dropped out. Katrina Kaif, often lauded by her co-stars for putting her all into her dancing, serves some fierce choreography to this breezy bhangra-infused R&B bop. Indeed still a dance number everyone loves to perform.
