Bollywood numbers have been glorifying relationships for long and friendship is one of them.
From Yeh dosti hum nahin todenge to Imli ka boota, the songs from Hindi movies are still loved by many and played over and over again by friends of different age groups. On Friendship Day Sunday, here's a list of popular friendship songs: The filmy anthem for friendship is from Sholay and has been sung by Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey. The iconic friendship song was picturised on megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra. 1. Yeh dosti hum nahin todenge: Another iconic friendship song filmed on Big B and Amjad Khan in the film Yaraana. The fact that the two of them were close friends in real life really helped make this Rajesh Roshan composition come alive. 2. Tere jaisa yaar kahan, kahan aisa yaaraana: The entire song was lip-synced by Rajesh Khanna in Hrishikesh Mukherjee's Namak Haraam. 3. Diye jalte hain: Kishore Kumar and Mohammad Rafi in one of their last collaborative songs in Raj Khosla's Dostana. Rafi passed away soon after the recording of this song. The two were barely cordial to one another and yet able to imbue so much warmth and camaraderie in this Laxmikant-Pyarelal composition. 4. Bane chahe dushman zamana hamara: Yet one more ode to friendship, the song was picturised on Pran. In Zanjeer, Big B's stern no-nonsense character allowed no musical expression of love (to Jaya Bachchan) or friendship (to Pran). 5. Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi: Filmed on the then-unknown Sudhir Kumar in the 1964 film Dosti, the song written by Majrooh Sultanpuri has become an anthem for friendship that lingers in the jukebox of the mind to this day. 6. Meri dosti mera pyar: It is picturised on Dharmendra and Jeetendra. Sung by Mohammad Rafi and Mukesh for the film Dharam Veer, the lyrics of the song are like - 7. Saat ajoobe is duniya mein: Tode se bhi toote na yeh dharam-veer ki jodi. A nursery-rhyme like friendship song in Subhash Ghai's Saudagar filmed on the two veteran actors Raj Kumar and Dilip Kumar. The number has a certain childlike innocence and unspoilt charm about it. 8. Imli ka boota: When Amitabh and Dharmendra reprised their buddy talks from Sholay in Ram Balram, the result was this zingy friendship song sung by Mohammad Rafi and Kishore Kumar. 9. Ek rasta do rahi, ek chor ek sipahi: A rare song that "dares" to explore the dark side of male bonding. When a deep friendship is torn apart what happens to the buddy-buddy feelings? Shashi Kapoor oozes cynicism as he hurls accusations at Rajesh Khanna in this song from Raj Khosla's Prem Kahani. 10. Doston mein koi baat chal jaati:
