Happy World Music Day! 5 Times Hollywood Films Used Bollywood Songs In Their Movies

Music is an important part of everyone’s life. Out of millions, there are just few who don’t love to hear the music. Almost everyone likes to set the volumes high of their favourite track and cut off from the world for a while. Music is just not a casual thing or a hobby, it’s also a therapy. It can instantly relax and rejuvenate you.

Bollywood and songs go hand in hand. In fact, Bollywood movies are famously known for their songs which are a major highlight of each and every film.

Hollywood too has some supremely beautiful songs which we love to listen.

Well, we have often seen B-town singers borrowing music from Hollywood films. But do you know Hollywood too has borrowed music from Bollywood? No, we are not kidding!

On the special occasion of the World Music Day, let’s take a look at 5 songs which Hollywood borrowed from the Hindi film industry.

  1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – Waada Na Tod (Dil Tujhko Diya)

Seems the makers were quite in love with this track which starred veteran Bollywood beauty Rati Agnihotri. In this movie, this song can be heard in the background when Kate Winslet takes Jim Carrey to her house.


  1. Moulin Rouge – Chamma Chamma (China Gate)

This famous song which starred Marathi mulgi Urmila Matondkar became a huge hit here. This song’s Hollywood version was played during an extremely important sequence during the film.


  1. Inside Man – Chaiyya Chaiyya ( Dil Se…)

Shah Rukh Khan and Malaika Arora’s hit track was played in the opening credits of the movie. However, it didn’t make any sense but it seems the director fell in love with this song.


  1. Deadpool – Mera Jhoota Hai Japaani (Shree 420)

The story behind this is really interesting. Director Tim Miller had heard the song years ago in a pub in London and simply loved it. He found an opportunity to use the song in his film when Deadpool hires a cab driven by an Indian. Well, now this makes a proper sense.


  1. The Accidental Husband – Chalka (Saathiya)

This Uma Thurman starrer movie has a scene where she walks in shame after she had a one night stand. This Rani Mukerji’s song starts playing in the background giving the perfect feel to the situation.


Well, we must say, Hollywood directors have used some of the best Bollywood songs for their movies!
