Love is a lot like food. We sure can’t live without either of them!
After all, the key to every person’s heart is through their stomach, be it a man or a woman. And when it comes to Bollywood, comparisons are always drawn between food items and romance. So to celebrate this grand Daawat-E-Ishq, here are some songs that convince you to go out and grab a bite with your loved one as soon as you hear them:
1. Batata Wada
The Mumbaiyya version of the Burger is the source of inspiration for this song. Madhuri Dixit’s dance and Batata Wada in one song? Irresistible!
2. Cheeni Kum
Love is sugar, love is spice. The titular track of this light-hearted film talks about the need for some extra ‘Cheeni’ in every romantic tale. As for the spice, it just comes naturally, doesn’t it?
3. Hotel Hain Mobile
This beloved song from the ’90s not only has a catchy tune, but also lists down the entire menu through the lyrics. Those were the days when Aditya Narayan was adorable.
4. Hai Hai Mirchi
The word ‘Mirchi’ has been repeated so many times in this song, that by the end of it, you end up reaching out for a bottle of water. The underlying message here? Be faithful to your wife, or she’ll leave a bad taste in your mouth (pun intended).
5. Main Toh Raste Se Jaa Raha Tha
With an array of ‘Chat’ stalls lined up in the opening shot of this song, it is hard for us to not sing-along and crave for some Bhel Puri and Ice-Cream. The beloved Mirchi also finds a special mention here.
6. Chocolate, Lime Juice, Ice-Cream, Toffeeya
Hum Aapke Hain Kaun teaches us many things. One of them being the fact that once we grow up, we stop craving for Chocolate, Ice-Cream and Toffees. We beg to differ!
7. Jab Tak Rahega Samose Mein Aloo
What’s the most-common thing people munch on during intervals? That’s right – an overpriced Samosa. When Mr. Khiladi decides to woo his love interest Shalu, he finds the word that best rhymes with her name – Aloo! Other favorite Indian snacks like Idli and Dosa also make a special cameo in this hilarious song.
It doesn’t matter if you hunger for some food or some love. Dear ol’ Bollywood has got you covered. Our stomachs are already rumbling. Biryani and Kebabs anyone?
