15 Popular Film Songs That Were Beautifully Sung By Bollywood Actors
There is no denying the fact that Bollywood celebrities are a talented lot. However, some of the actors also happen to be phenomenal singers. Not only have they acted on the songs, some of them also sung them by themselves. Here are 15 most popular songs from films that had the same actors as playback singers.
The dream sequence between Sridevi and Rishi Kapoor became a super hit as the title song of the film Chandni. Little do people know that Sridevi herself sings for the female lead. Listen to the song Chandi and check out for yourself.
2. Rang Barse
The ‘Holi’ song that should be the ambassador for the festival in India, is Amitabh Bachchan himself singing it out and we love it. Listen to the Rang Barse.
The folk number from Laawaris was Amitabh Bachchan and his entire talent out there. And till date, we don’t think anybody in the industry can still beat the screen presence that Big B had in this song. Watch the whole song here: Mere Angne Mein
4. Ae Shivani
Sunjay Dutt sang the song in 1999 movie Khoobsurat and Urmila Matondkar played the role of nerdy Shivani. Watch Ae Shivani
The song became an anthem for youth when Ghulam came with a fresh face in Rani Mukerji. Prior to this, we had seen Rani as an Indian girl under social pressures. The song pioneered playback singing by actors, through Aamir Khan, something that not many actors had experience with earlier, except Amitabh Bachchan. Watch Aati Kya Khandala.
6. Apun Bola
The tapori song from the movie Josh was sung by Shah Rukh Khan and it wasn’t a cakewalk for the actor. The actor later revealed how the song was cut into different pieces because he could not hold the tune. And it was later strung into one song which had quite a comic element to it as well. Watch Apun Bola here.
Stepping into his father’s shoes, Abhishek Bachchan has made us groove to the peppy number ‘Right Here Right Now’ from Bluffmaster. With impeccable rapping skills, the song made a huge hit. Watch Right Here Right Now

Though rapper Raftaar sang one version of the song, Aamir Khan came back with a bang to the world of music with this one powerful number from Dangal. Watch Dhaakad.
The Suresh Wadekar number from Sadma is a tough call to remake. However, Alia Bhatt has tried her hand on this one with Dear Zindagi and it is worth giving a chance. Listen to Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le.
Amitabh Bachchan’s role in Nishabd, a story of a budding romance between an old man and a young girl, wasn’t the only thing to cause ripples. His song Rozana will make you cry with him. Listen to Rozana here.

14. Rajj Rajj Ke
If you are not that big a fan of Sonakshi, well, she isn’t that bad with her singing. Here’s a number that she did for her movie Akira. Listen to Rajj Rajj Ke, Sonakshi Style.
15. Teri Galiyaan
If there is one person in Bollywood we would genuinely want to pick up singing along, it is Shraddha Kapoor, thanks to her bloodline that leads her to Lata Mangeshkar. Not only has she made this song perfect, it is done just on point. Listen to Teri Galiyaan unplugged.
Well, some of these surely need to stop because the music industry has more than enough competition! So maybe, actors can save them some horror!Nevertheless, we love them!
