Yet, the celebration should not be paused. One can choose to play safely at home while enjoying some Bollywood melodies. So, here we have come up with our playlist which features Bollywood' top 10 holi songs -
Arre Ja Re Hat Natkhat (Navrang)
The song 'Are Ja Re Hat Natkhat' is one of the most beautiful and pleasing to the ear music one can choose for the Holi celebrations. Sung by Asha Bhosle and Mahendra Kapoor, it was penned by lyricist Bharat Vyas and was featured in the 1959's movie Navrang. The film cast Sandhya Rani, Mahipal, and Keshavrao Date in the lead roles.
Tu Ne Maari Entriyaan (Gunday)
Real-life besties Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor are seen wooing Priyanka Chopra in this song from the 2014 action-thriller film 'Gunday' which gives a fab vibe of Holi celebration. The hook step is what makes it all the more memorable for the fans.

Do Me A Favour, Let's Play Holi (Waqt)
This has to be the most played Holi song ever due to its amazing vibe. You won't be able to get through Holi without hearing this music at least once.

Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, two of the best dancers of India, brought their fantastic touch to this Holi song. The song went on to become the nation's dance anthem as a result of their deadly mix.
Rang Barse (Silsila)
The song stars Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan again, this time with Rekha ji and is a popular song that most of us have grown up listening to. This upbeat song is also a crowd-pleaser during Holi.
Holi Ke Din (Sholay)
