Comments  Comments [ 34 ]    By Gurprit K. | 11 August 2014 | 11:47pm

Bollywood has always influenced the world of television in one way or other. Whether it be the lavish sets, song sequences or romantic moments, the influence of Bollywood has been evident in many television shows, especially during the 21st Century where the Czarina of Television, Ekta Kapoor, forayed into the industry with her path breaking shows.

The early 2000s saw Bollywood songs make its way into the world of television serials such as Kkusum using the song "Tere Naam" as a theme song for the lead couple and Kasauti Zindagi Kay, which made the evergreen song "Ajeeb Dastaan" famous among youngsters. It did not take long for the creative team of various television shows to realise the effect Bollywood music had on their target audience, which led to more songs being incorporated into their shows. Whether it was a romantic date sequence filmed on the song "Bol Na Halke Halke" from Dill Mill Gayye, a group of friends dancing to "London Thumakda" for their friend's engagement in Dil Dostii Dance, or a passionate dance duet to "Teri Meri" filmed on the leads of the popular show Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, Bollywood songs began to be used in a wide variety of situations on the small screen. Read on as BollyCurry brings to you some of the recent popular song sequences that took the television industry by a storm.

1. "Har Kisiko Nahi Milta" - Rangrasiya

A very peppy and vibrant song from the movie Boss (2013), "Har Kisiko Nahi Milta" was the song chosen when the creatives of television show Rangrasiya felt the need for a romantic song for the protagonists to share a romantic dance to. Even though this song, sung by Nikhil D'souza with lyrics by Manoj Yadav, is reproduction of the original, it contains a certain charm of its own. The lead pair of Paro (Sanaya Irani) and Rudra (Ashish Sharma) taking over the dance floor to such a passionate song was a treat for the viewers of Rangrasiya.
2. "Dua" - Beintehaa

"Dua", from the movie Shanghai (2012), a song which conveys pain and helplessness, was used in the popular show "Beintehaa". Sung by Nandini Srikar, Arijit Singh and Shekhar Ravjiani, and composed by Vishal Dadlani - Shekhar Ravjiani, this song was used to portray the vulnerability of Zain (Harshad Arora) and Aaliya (Preetika Rao) who were getting married to each other against their will. The juxtaposition of this song in the sequence portrayed their anguish perfectly without a need of single dialogue. 

 3. "Teri Galliyan" - Ye Hai Mohabbatein

Whenever "Teri Galliyan" is played, the listener is forced to stand and sway to the music. The popularity of this song and its melodious music is the reason why the creative team of Ye Hai Mohabbatein chose this song to be played while Raman (Karan Patel) and Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi) dance in the background and a jealous Shagun (Anita Hassanandani) looks on. A song which has taken over the nation, "Teri Galliyan" from the successful movie Ek Villian (2014) has been sung and composed by Ankit Tiwari and written by Manoj Muntashir.
4. "Allah Waariyan" - Kumkum Bhagya

A song which tells the tale of not separating from the person you love, "Allah Waariyan" from the youth film Yaariyan (2014) is used in Balaji Telefilm's show Kumkum Bhagya whenever Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia) and Pragya (Sriti Jha) come face to face. A much loved song by the audience, it has been sung by the talented Shafqat Amanat Ali and written and composed by Arko Pravo Mukherjee. The song was an instant success at the time of release, and continues to endear us to Abhi and Pragya whenever it plays on screen.
5. "Saathiya Ye Tu Ne Kya Kiya" - Pavitra Rishta

While the whole song may not have been used regularly by makers of Balaji Telefilm's long running show Pavitra Rishta, it has become the theme song for the lead couple of Archana (Ankita Lokhande) and Manav (Sushant Singh Rajput/Hiten Tejwani). The music is mostly loved for its simplicity and also because the majority of the viewers are from the same era this song belongs to. "Saathiya Tu Ne Kya Kiya" is from the movie Love (1991) and is sung by the extremely versatile Chitra K. S. and S.P. Balasubramaniam.
6. "Jhin Min Jheeni" - Qubool Hai

Used recently in 4 Lions Films' path-breaking show Qubool Hai for a dance sequence during Aahil (Karanvir Bohra) and Nida's mehendi, the "Jhin Min Jheeni" song segment had the protagonist Sanam (Surbhi Jyoti) dancing to this song joyfully. A song sung by Sadhna Sargam and Anuradha Sriram, written by Gulzar and composed by Vishal Bhardwaj, this popular song is often played in weddings and is known for its sweet lyrics and well composed music. The song is from the movie Maqbool (2003).
The above are just a few Bollywood songs used in popular shows that are still on air today. Other recent noted song sequences that had Tellywood fans squeal in delight include: "Tera Hero Idhar Hai" from Veera, "Samjhawaan" from Sadda Haq and "Dhiktana Dhiktana" from Pyaar Ka Dard Hai...Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara.
