Over the years, Punjabi songs have become a major part of Bollywood films. From tracks like Mauja hi mauja (Jab We Met; 2007) to Aaja mah’ (Singh Is Bling; 2015) — Hindi films have featured several Punjabi hits. Shahid Kapoor, too, is a fan of such songs, and apparently has a huge collection of this music.

“Shahid has a special album, which is a compilation of different types of Punjabi songs. It has folk Punjabi tracks, and even those with techno and hip-hop beats. He started listening to Punjabi music after the success of Mauja hi mauja’,” says a source close to the actor.

Apparently, whenever Shahid hosts a party at home, he becomes the DJ, and loves playing these songs.

“Not just at home. He carries his music player wherever he goes,” adds the source.
