Aisi Deewangee

Song: Aisi Deewangee

Film: Deewana (1992)

Singer: Vinod Rathod, Alka Yagnik

Music Directors Nadeem Shravan

This movie can be said to be the star vehicle of Shahrukh Khan which started it all. This romantic song which satisfied everyone’s romantic hearts was where Divya Bharati’s character finally accepts Shahrukh’s character after many a trial and tribulation including the loss of her first husband.

Tu Mere Samne

Tu Mere Samne

Song: Tu Mere Samne

Film: Darr (1993)

Singer: Udit Narayan  &  Lata Mangeshkar

Music Directors : Shiv-Hari

1993 saw two films of Shahrukh that had him playing the evil man. Here, Shahrukh Khan’s stalker character romances the unaware object of his obsession, Juhi Chawla’s character. The song is intensely romantic, yet has sinister undertones when seen on screen.

Yeh Kali Kali Aankhen

 Yeh Kali Kali Aankhen

Song: Yeh Kali Kali Aankhen

Film: Baazigar  (1993)

Singer: Kumar Sanu

Music Directors: Anu Malik

This film has Shahrukh Khan’s character cold bloodedly pursuing Shilpa Shetty and Kajol’s character, in order to take revenge; he even kills one of them. This song has a great beat and has Shahrukh wooing Kajol at a nightclub. This is one of Kumar Sanu’s best songs.

Aana Mere Pyar Ko Na Tum

Aana Mere Pyar Ko Na Tum

Song: Aana Mere Pyar Ko Na Tum

Film: Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994)

Singer: Kumar Sanu & Alka Yagnik

Music Directors: Jatin Lalit

This song captured the infectious energy and young feel of the movie. The irrepressible Shahrukh pursues a reluctant Suchitra Krishnamurthy all over Goa and tries to win her over.

Jaati Hoon Mein

Jaati Hoon Mein

Song: Jaati Hoon Mein

Film: Karan Arjun (1995)

Singer: Kumar Sanu & Alka Yagnik

Music Directors: Rajesh Roshan

The film was a reincarnation cum revenge saga. It is probably going to be the only movie which has Salman Khan and Sharukh Khan acting together! This song has a seductive Kajol teasing Shahrukh, while he tries to make her linger on with him. The western feel of the song and Kajol and Shahrukh’s chemistry made the song a visual treat too.

 

Chand Tare Tod Laun

Chand Tare Tod Laun

Song: Chand Tare Tod Laun

Film: Yes Boss (1997)

Singer: Abhijeet

Music Directors: Jatin-Lalit

The film is about an ambitious man who is ready to do anything to please his boss. The song has a bright feel to it and has Shahrukh dreaming of riches and fame for himself.

Tujhe Dekha To Hai Jaana Sanam

Tujhe Dekha To Hai Jaana Sanam

Song: Tujhe Dekha To Hai Jaana Sanam

Film: Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995)

Singer: Kumar Sanu & Lata Mangeshkar

Music Directors: Jatin-Lalit

The song is a visual delight, besides being an auditory one. Mustard fields, a vivacious Kajol in white salwar-kameez and a dashing Shahrukh carrying his guitar and wearing a leather jacket makes people sigh, even now! The mood and their amazing chemistry is the stuff of legends.

Are Re Are

Are Re Are

Song: Are Re Are

Film: Dil To Pagal Hai (1997)

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar & Udit Narayan

Music Directors: Uttam Singh

The pairing of Shahrukh and Madhuri in this song in  the Yash Chopra film showcases Bollywood’s two amazing actors and the blossoming of a beautiful love relationship, which is inhibited by constraints.

Ghungte Mein Chanda Hai 

Ghungte Mein Chanda Hai

Song: Ghungte Mein Chanda Hai

Film: Koyla (1997)

Singer: Udit Narayan

Music Directors: Rajesh Roshan

This Shahrukh and Madhuri didn’t do too well at the box office, but featured Madhuri in some great dance sequences. The song had Shahrukh and Johnny Lever singing for their master Amrish Puri’s new bride, Madhuri. The song has a great dance beat.

Chaiyya Chaiyya

Chaiyya Chaiyya

Song: Chaiyya Chaiyya

Film: Dil Se (1998)

Singer: Sukhwinder Singh & Sapna Awasthi

Music Directors: A.R. Rahman
This song created quite a buzz for, not only A R Rahman’s thumping beat, but also for Farah Khan’s choreography. Shahrukh and the Rajasthani village belle, Malaika Arora with her troupe made the dance sequence atop a moving Indian Railways train, appear so easy despite all the difficulties associated with standing, dancing on a moving goods train. Amazing shots of Malaika’s delicious figure and the beautiful winding track of the train make this song a classic.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Song: Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Film: Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998)

Singer: Alka Yagnik & Udit Narayan

Music Directors Jatin-Lalit
When you have the incomparable pairing of Shahrukh and Kajol and combine it with the mesmerising Rani Mukherjee, and place it at the moment when love blossoms, you get another classic and anthem for young love.

Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam

Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam

Song: Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam

Film: Duplicate (1998)

Singer: Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik

Music Directors: Anu Malik

The movie has Shahrukh essaying a double role with Sonali Bendre and Juhi Chawla playing the love interest, but despite this the movie goers weren’t too thrilled with the movie. It’s songs were more popular than the movie and this song had Shahrukh singing in a light hearted fashion.

Humko Humise Churalo

Humko Humise Churalo

Song: Humko Humise Churalo

Film: Mohabbatein (2000)

Singer: Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik

Music Directors: Anu Malik
Shahrukh’s fashion statement of draping the sweater around the shoulders became quite the trend among his fans! His role in the film was the dignified counterpoint to the buffoonery shown by the students. The song is a staple Yash Chopra song, with Aishwarya wearing chiffon sarees, verdant Switzerland, the trademark move of Shahrukh spreading his arms out and melodious music.

Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani

Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani

Song: Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani

Film: Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani (2000)

Singer: Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik

Music Directors: Jatin-Lalit

This was another hit song in an otherwise average film. The song had a fun feel about and was a tongue-in-cheek effort about the idiosyncrasies of normal Indians; the good and bad. The song was an affectionate ode to the Indian citizen.

Suraj Hua Maddham

Suraj Hua Maddham

Song: Suraj Hua Maddham

Film: Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001)

Singer: Sonu Nigam, Alka Yagnik

Music Directors: Sandesh Shandilya
What can you say to a song that has Shahrukh, Kajol and the majestic Egyptian Pyramids in the background? Kajol wearing chiffon sarees in single shades, looking sensual and in love, with Shahrukh at his intense best and Sandesh’s beautiful song make this song a super hit and classic.

Mahi Ve

Mahi Ve

Song: Mahi Ve

Film: Kal Ho Na Ho (2003)

Singer: Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Sadhana Sargam, Shankar Mahadevan, Madhushree

Music Directors: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

The Punjabi based song has a great dance beat and has Shahrukh and Saif Ali Khan singing for their common love, Preity Zinta. The song has all the colour and splendour and visuals of a big fat Punjabi wedding, yet the movie watchers feel the pathos which underlies the tragedy behind Shahrukh singing so happily for the to-be-wedded Preity who is getting married to another, but whom he actually loves.

Mein Yahaan Hoon

Mein Yahaan Hoon

Song: Mein Yahaan Hoon

Film: Veer-Zaara (2004)

Singer: Udit Narayan

Music Directors: Madan Mohan

Late Madan Mohan’s music was used by Yash Chopra for this hit cross border romantic film. The song is an intensely romantic one with Indian Air Force officer, Shahrukh singing, without being actually present, to the lovelorn Pakistani Preity Zinta, who is getting engaged to Manoj Bajpai, and yet can only sense Shahrukh in the midst of all the festivities and feel his presence all time.

Tumse Milke Dil Ka

Tumse Milke Dil Ka

Song: Tumse Milke Dil Ka

Film: Main Hoon Na (2004)

Singer: Sonu Nigam, Aftaab Saabri, Hashim Saabri

Music Directors: Anu Malik

This is fusion music at its danceable best! Quawali gets a hip and modern twist with Shahrukh and Zayed Khan singing to their respective love interests, Sushmita Sen and Amrita Rao.

Main Hoon Don

Main Hoon Don

Song: Main Hoon Don

Film: Don (2006)

Singer:  Shaan.

Music Directors: Shankar – Ehsan – Loy

This reprising of the original Amitabh Bachchan track is equally arresting. The modernisation of the original track was loved for its coolness and stylishness; Shahrukh was equally cool and menacing in his characterisation of the titular character.

Ajab Si

Ajab Si

Song: Ajab Si

Film: Om Shanti Om (2007)

Singer: KK

Music Directors: Vishal-Shekhar

Shahrukh as the lovelorn fan of the beautiful actress, Deepika Padukone, is funny and sweet and everyone can relate to this song’s feelings. The song picturised in the Bollywood of the 70s showed the fun costumes and typical films of that decade.

Haule Haule Se Hawa Lagatee Hai

Haule Haule Se Hawa Lagatee Hai

Song: Haule Haule Se Hawa Lagatee Hai

Film: Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi ( 2008)

Singer: Sukhwinder Singh

Music Directors: Salim Sulaiman

Shahrukh carried off the unusual role of a nerdy looking, ordinary man convincingly and successfully. His love for his beautiful and reluctant wife, Anushka Sharma is showcased beautifully in this song. The song was actually shot in the narrow streets of Amritsar and the effort was pulled of brilliantly.

Chammak Challo

Chammak Challo

 

Song: Chammak Challo

Film: Ra. One (2012)

Singer: Akon

Music Composer: Vishal-Shekhar

Akon sang in Hindi for Shahrukh! The unusual pairing of the two and of course Kareena Kapoor’s sexy look and unusual dance steps all add up to a visual and auditory delight for the movie watchers who gave a thumbs up to the song and thumbs down to the movie..

Challa

Challa

Song: Challa

Film: Jab Tak Hai Jaan ( 2012)

Singer: Rabbi

Music Directors: A. R. Rahman

While many found the pairing of singer Rabbi as Shahrukh’s voice, slightly disconcerting to say the least, the song soon picked up steam and Shahrukh holding and strumming a guitar as he works his way through the busy crowds in the US, was liked by all in this song , in Yash Chopra’s last fi
