ONTD Original: Best Bollywood Dance Videos of the 2000s

One thing Bollywood is absolutely known for is its memorable dance numbers. Go to any Indian wedding and you'll see at least one dance performance to a hit song! I've tried to compile the Top Ten videos from the last 15 years.


10. Hum Saath Saath Hain - Maiyya Yashoda


I'm a bit of a softie and when it comes to Bollywood, I love the cheesy family dramas. This one was quite the multi-starrer with the likes of Salman Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Tabu and Saif Ali Khan. The song portrays love-stricken ladies pleading to the mother of their Romeos to save them from the men's relentless flirting. Maiyya Yashoda is saccharine sweet like a mango lassi, so just enjoy it guilt-free



9. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - Ghagra


There's a lot of flirting going on in these videos, as is common in Bollywood. In this song, the radiant Madhuri Dixit teases the younger Ranbir Kapoor. She doesn't want a boy, she needs a man. She also dances like a dream and has several gorgeous outfits


8. Ek Tha Tiger - Mashallah


Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan pair up in this middle eastern-influenced number. I'm usually not the biggest fan of Kat but I was impressed with her confidence and belly-dancing moves. Plus she looks ridiculously gorgeous. Even Salman gets some decent moves in


7. Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham - Yeh Ladka Hai Allah


Shahrukh Khan and Kajol are the It couple when it comes to Bollywood in the 90s and 2000s. This song is a playful back-and-forth where SRK flirts openly with Kajol while she rebuffs him, even though she actually likes him too. The chemistry is palpable and they play off one another perfectly


6. Lakshya - Main Aisa Kyon Hoon


Hrithik Roshan is by far one of the best dancers in Bollywood. In this number he gets to show off a more modern dance style. Hrithik's character is troubled that all of his friends have future plans and know what they want to do with their lives and he has no idea. What's wrong with him? Why is everyone else's life coming together and yet he has no clue? Best way to express those feelings in a Bollywood movie is to dance them out


5. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam - Nimbooda


Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai stuns in this high-energy number. With lively energetic moves and a teasing quality to her dance, it's no wonder Ajay Devgan watches her in complete awe throughout the entire video. Ash is fresh, vibrant and mesmerizing


4. R...Rajkumar - Gandi Baat


Shahid Kapoor is another one of the best dancers in Bollywood and he's joined by Sonakshi Sinha and the legendary Prabhudeva to pull off some absolutely awesome moves. Also apparently Shahid's toe was injured while they filmed this and he still pushed through, so gotta give him props


3. Ram-Leela - Nagada Sang Dhol


In this re-telling of Romeo and Juliet starring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh emotions are constantly running high. Deepika brings some light and celebration to the proceedings with her graceful dance while still ramping up the intensity of the film's plot. Deepika also injured herself while filming this and danced with bandaged feet, whoa


2. Dil Se - Chaiyya Chaiyya


Dancing is hard enough especially with such large groups of dancers, but try filming it while on a train moving at 40 miles per hour! Shahrukh Khan and Malaika Arora make it look easy. One crew member tripped and hurt themselves but other than that everyone was safe and sound after shooting for five days. This is a song that will truly never be replicated and will always be remembered as a landmark in Indian cinema


1. Devdas - Dola Re Dola


When you pair two of the greatest dancers in Bollywood - Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai - in one high-energy number with gorgeous sets, outfits and amazing choreography you get the brilliance that is Dola Re Dola. Two women in love with the same man and yet they develop a friendship. Not a single movement or note is out of place. To say this song has reached iconic status would be an understatement
