Every daughter could relate to this song. The words are so brilliantly woven that the song hits your soul like few songs do.
2. Bedardi Raja, Delhi Belly
Naina bole re karorey chatkhaare
Kabhi humri gali mein aake jaa re
Khaye joban ke jo wo hichkore
Jara tu bhi toh nazar dohra re
Sona’s voice gave a whole different look to this sultry song. It is raunchy but ethereal at the same time.
3. Ambarsaria, Fukrey
Ambarsariya mundave kachiya kaliyaan na tod
Teri maa ne bole hain mujhe teekhe se bol

4. Jiya lage na, Talaash
Mein anjaani, hun voh kahani
Hogi na jo puri
Staying simple helped Sona in winning many hearts. One could never get bored of listening to this song.
5. Naina, Khoobsurat
Naina nu pata hai
Naina di khata hai
Saanu kis gal di phir
Mildi sazaa hai
This is her best song so far. Her voice was just right for the Sonam- Fawad’s chemistry.
6. I hate you (Like I love you), Delhi Belly
Tere jaisa zaalim
Milta hai naseeb se
Dil hai tera khanjar
Ghayal karde kareeb se
This peppy song was a huge hit and not just because of Aamir Khan’s weird moves. People couldn’t get over till date.
