Top 30 Bollywood Songs of Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor Khan – the ruling diva of Bollywood. She has been mesmerizing her fans for the last 16 years since the rise of new millennium. Through countless roles she played onscreen during this period she has proved herself to be an ageless beauty. When actresses of 35+ move towards senior or serious roles, she is still entertaining audience through her dance moves. For her, age is just a number. No doubt, along with Hrithik Roshan, she is the best find of Bollywood in the new millennium. Though both the actors were supposed to debut Bollywood with a single movie, they entered the entertainment arena through different films though in the same year.
If you list the top Bollywood songs of past 15 years or so, definitely Kareena owns the lion share of most popular songs. They belong to different genres such as romantic, breakups and of course the most popular sizzling dance numbers. It’s not an easy task to list 10 or 20 best songs of Kareena Kapoor’s career. So, I tried to list 30 best songs and often included more than one song from a single movie. Also read – Top 5 performances of Kareena.
Also a very interesting fact to add, and a strange co-incidence too. Since Kareena’s debut film Refugee in 2000, Anu Malik composed songs of 5 Kareena movies in a row, and all her movies released in 2000 & 2001, except Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. The other movies are Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai, Yadein, Ajnabee and Asoka. In 2003 also, Anu Malik composed three of her films in a row – Khushi, Mein Prem Ki Diwani Hoon and LOC Kargil. He recorded maximum songs in Alka Yagnik’s voice, followed by Chithra and others.
Sunidhi Chauhan and Shreya Ghoshal frequently did playback singing for her. During her first phase of Bollywood journey, Alka Yagnik’s voice was frequently used by music composers,apart from Chithra. Sunidhi recorded several sizzling tracks for Kapoor. Kareena’s voice was first used while recording the song Aaja Re Mahi of Fida. In my opinion, majority of her melodious tracks belong to the past decade (2000-2009), and demand for her item songs have went up with new decade. Music composers have experimented with different new voices for Kareena Kapoor. Have a check.

1. Bebo Mein Bebo and Kyun Phoolom Si from Kambakkht Ishq Let me begin the list with ‘Bebo’ song as it’s her pet name. She sizzled aside Akshay Kumar for this dancing number and the voice was rendered by Alisha Chinai who is unbeaten for this genre of songs in Bollywood till now. My pick is the soft track – Kyun Phoolom Si rendered by Shaan & Shreya Ghoshal. Om Mangalam (and its reprised version) – is another popular track of the album.

2. You Are My Soniya from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gum It’s the best dance number pictured on Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor. It’s for the first time they shared screen space for a Bollywood film. The song was sung by Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik. The movie also included the popular dance song – Bole Chudiyan with entire star cast.

3. Raat Na Nasha and Sun Suna Na from Asoka Both the tracks are extremely melodious, and always counted among the best songs pictured on Kareena. But the movie was a box office failure. Raat Ka Nasha is one of the best Bollywood songs sung by south Indian Nightingale – Chithra. The song was so popular that later Anu Malik used Chithra’s voice for a series of songs for Kareena in Mein Prem Ki Diwani Hoon. The solo track – Sun Suna Na sung by Alka Yagnik too is equally popular, and definitely finds a position in my list. The movie also included the sizzling track Chooke Bole Na Choo Na pictured on Shah Rukh and Kareena.

4. Shukra Allah of KurbaanA beautiful romantic song pictured on the real-life couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, it was sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal.
