#1 Morni Banke 

 The Best Bollywood Songs for Kids 2021

I dare you to not dance on this one! Like most Punjabi songs, this song is so catchy and fun and is played at every dance party. Set at a wedding-like event, this video has full-on Desi attire and bhangra-style dancing.

Is the video appropriate for kids? Yes! Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra look like they’re having so much fun, making silly faces, and overall having a blast. 

Key Learning Words:

Kamaal -fantastic

Morni = peacock

    #2 Makhna 

    The Top Bollywood Songs for your Kids 2021, 2020

    A beautiful song featuring Jacqueline Fernandez and the late Sushant Singh Rajput traveling through Israel. The song has a great vibe -- starting off slow and building up to a great beat. Featuring a group of friends on a vacation -- this video has a hand-held camera feel to it. The locations, and settings are stunning (and made me a little jealous haha).

    Is the video appropriate for kids? Maybe. The video includes some drinking and late-night partying, which may be too much for a young child! Check out our

    #4 Aankh Marey

     The Best Bollywood Songs for Your Kids 2021, 2020

    One of the biggest dance songs from Bollywood! This song is a remix of an older 90’s song (that's why Karan Johar says “one more remix” in the beginning of the song!) “Aankh maare” literally means “to wink.” It also has some other great words your kids will like to learn like “seeti bajaaye” (to whistle.)

    #5 Dus Bahane 2.0

    Top Bollywood Songs for Kids 2021, 2020

    Another remix song, which was remixed for a reason! Dus Bahane’s music and lyrics just make you want to get up and move. Because “Dus” means “10” -- this song will give you a good opportunity to teach your child their Hindi numbers (and maybe even introduce Madhuri to them in 1,2,3 :))

    Is the video appropriate for kids? No. The video has scantily clad actors, which may seem inappropriate. Listen to our SAAVN or SPOTIFY playlist instead:).

    - Jaadoo - magic

    - Mushkil - difficulty 

    - Dus - 10

    #6 Laal Ghaghra

     Best Bollywood Dance Songs For Kids 2021 2020

    Another banger, with bits of Hindi -- Laal Ghaghra is a hit at every party (even if you haven’t heard it before)! Laal means “red” so it might be a perfect time to teach your kids about colors and even about the different kinds of Desi clothes (Ghaghra, Salwar Kameez, Kurta Pajama, SaRi, etc.).

    Is the video appropriate for kids? Yes! The video is set at a party and there’s lots of group dancing.

    #7 Ghungroo

     Best Bollywood Songs For Kids 2021 2020

    Very suave and chill, Ghungroo has a beach party vibe, which makes sense because the video is set on a beach! This one is great for kids because it teaches them lots of useful Hindi/Urdu, like the phrase “toot gaya” which means “it broke!” 

    Is the video appropriate for kids? Mostly yes! The beginning of the video has some romantic scenes, but once the dancing kicks in, it's all good:).

    Key Learning Words:

    - Lamhe - moments

    - Kharaab - ruin

    - Toot gaye - broke

     

    #8 Nachde Ne Saare

    The best Bollywood Songs For Kids 2021 

    A great song for any little dance performers out there -- it’s a perfect sangeet song! Although this song has many Punjabi lyrics (like many Bollywood dance songs do), it also mixes in some Hindi!

    Is the video appropriate for kids? Yes, absolutely! The song is set behind the scenes at a wedding, so it shows the food, dance practice and many other things. It might be useful to show your child if they haven’t been to a Desi wedding yet.

    - KuRi - women

    - Nachde ne saare - everyone dances

    - Nazaare - sights

     

    #9 Chandigarh Mein

     The Top Bollywood Songs For Kids 2021 2020

    Another dance floor staple -- this song is the second song on this list from Good Newwz. Your child can learn a very useful word “Ghar” and maybe even a little about Indian geography -- like Chandigarh is a Northern Indian city in Punjab.

    Is the video appropriate for kids? Yes! Similar to other songs on this list, the video is picturized at a club/party. There is a sparkly set and lots of dancing.

    Key Learning Words:

    - Dilaade - buy me

    #10 Dil Chori

     The Best Bollywood Dance Songs for Kids 2021 2020

    “Dil Chori” is one of the oldest songs on this list, but one that has endured! Hear it on the radio, at parties and at every celebration. It is also filled with good Hindi words to learn (warning it does mention drinking red wine though!).
