You know what’s common between desi Hindus and Muslims? Both love turning Bollywood gaanas to devotional songs!
Here are some must-listen compositions that went viral after a Twitter user pointed them out. A little dose of some quirky musicians who see god in even the most filmy of songs: Think Ude Jab Jab Zulfein Teri and Bindiya Chamkegi Choodi Khankegi
1. Ramzan Ye Jab Jab Aaye takes its tune from the iconic Ude Jab Jab Zulfein Teri song from the movie Naya Daur. What say fam?
2. Remember the movie Maine Dil Tujhko Diya? Never mind. Its song Thoda sa pyaar hua hai, thoda hai baaki, has inspired He Jo Mohabbat Mahe Ramzan Ki.
5. Did T-Series just buy one tune and recycle it into two songs? From the deeply forgettable Mujhko Yaad Sataye Teri to Maahe Zeeshan Laya Badi Shaan Se Rahmat. Fun fact: One is produced by T-Series, the other by T-Series Regional.
