25 Best Bollywood Songs of 2023 That Should Be In Your Playlist


We have to face it- Bollywood has been a little disappointing with its songs lately. The charm that Bollywood songs carried with them was lost somewhere in the unnecessary remixes and pop songs with unbearable lyrics. 2022, however, was a year where we saw some sense of redemption with Kesariya, Doobey, Meri Jaan, and Naatu Naatu (which by the way also won an Oscar and a Golden Globe) making it to the top of our playlists. We are now in 2024 and this redemption has lowkey carried itself into the next year and we couldn’t have been happier! Let’s take a look at the Best Bollywood songs of 2023 so far!
