Bollywood has gained popularity all over the world, especially during the past two decades and is quite famous for its extravagant song-dance sequences.

Many Bollywood songs are remembered by Indian audiences for the sensuous content in their visuals. These songs didn’t just become chartbusters but have also managed to draw crowds to movie halls, helping in the thumping success of the films.
