Bollywood movie buffs and music lovers may try recalling a trend that began during the late 80s and 90s when a movie succeeded at the box-office and completed a 100-day-run the makers added an extra song to it. This was done on quite a few occasions way back then to celebrate its success and give audiences an incentive to throng the theaters once more. Though these songs served as an added attraction post-release to earn a few extra bucks only a few could pull audiences back to the theaters. These songs often felt enforced disturbing the narration and resulting as a turn-off for fans. This trend was an experiment of sorts by a few makers which didn’t help much and faded away as time passed by. Let’s go down memory lane and check out some of the Bollywood songs which were added to the movies after its release.


1. Tumko Hum Dilbar Kyon Maane – Tezaab (1988)

Probably it was for the first time that a song was added post-release of a movie in Bollywood. The song Tumko Hum Dilbar Kyon Maane picturized on Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit and sung by Anuradha Paudwal and Sudesh Bhonsle was added after Tezaab completed a 100-day run at the box-office. Though the song was catchy enough but not as good as its earlier ones which were still going strong. Penned by Javed Akhtar and composed by Laxmikant – Pyarelal, the song didn’t help much for an extended run as audiences felt it was forced into the narration.

2. Dum Duma Dum – Dil (1990)

Director Indra Kumar’s 1990 blockbuster Dil starring Aamir Khan and Madhuri Dixit was the biggest hit of that year. All songs were chartbusters which were penned by Sameer and composed by Anand – Milind. On the occasion of celebrating a 100-day-run at the box-office, the producers then shot another song titled Dum Duma Dum which was picturized on the lead cast and was sung by Anuradha Paudwal and Udit Narayan. The song was a hit and did manage to get the audience back to the theaters.

3. Pyaar Mein Dil De Diya – Anari (1993)

Pyaar Mein Dil De Diya from Anari was another Bollywood song added after the release of the film. Anari which marked the debut of Telugu movie star Venkatesh in Bollywood hit the bullseye at the box-office. The movie which was a remake of Venkatesh’s Telugu hit Chanti (1992) had Karisma Kapoor playing the female lead and was directed by K. Murali Mohana Rao. The number picturized on the lead pair was hummable like other songs in the album which was composed by Anand–Milind, written by Sameer and rendered by Alka Yagnik and Kumar Sanu.

4. Dil Tujhpe Aa Gaya - Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1991)

Another song that was added post-release of the movie was Dil Tujhpe Aa Gaya Film from Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin which was released in 1991. When released it was among the top Bollywood romantic songs that time which was picturized on Aamir Khan and Pooja Bhatt, this song was initially a part of the audio songs album but didn’t feature in the film. It was only later that the song’s release was used as a strategy to pull back audiences once more to the theaters by director Mahesh Bhatt and producer Gulshan Kumar. Composed by Nadeem – Shravan, written by Sameer and sung by Anuradha Paudwal, Babul Mehta, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, the song became equally popular after release.

5. Pehli Baarish Main Aur Tu – Phool Aur Kaante (1991)

Music director Nadeem – Shravan who was riding high those days after delivering back-to-back hits adopted the same strategy for the song Pehli Baarish Main Aur Tu from Phool Aur Kaante in 1991. Rated those days among the top Bollwood melodies, the song was penned by Rani Mallick and sung by Anuradha Paudwal and Kumar Sanu, the song featuring debutants Madhoo and Ajay Devgn was already a part of the album but was later added to the film. The song which was already a hit in the audiotapes did help to pull in the crowds once again to some extent as all other songs were one better than the other.

6. Chikini Soorat Tu Kahan Tha - Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993)

Mahesh Bhatt’s Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke released in 1993 starring Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla, Navneet Nishan, Dalip Tahil, Master Kunal Khemu, Master Sharokh and Baby Ashrafa was a hit from day one. Songs composed by Nadeem – Shravan and penned by lyricist Sameer can be heard even today which included Ghunghat Ki Aad Se Dilbar Ka, Yunhi Kat Jaayega Safar Saath Chalne Se, Mujhse Mohabbat Ka Izhaar Karta, Bambai Se Gayee Poona, etc. Chikini Soorat Tu Kahan Tha sung by Kumar Sanu was added later after the film completed its initial successful run of 100-days at the theaters.

7. Jaaneman Jaaneman - Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai (2000)

Jaaneman Jaaneman song from Rakesh Roshan’s 2000 blockbuster Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai originally was part of the movie but was edited during the final cut to trim the runtime. Once the movie was a hit and recorded its 100-day run at the box-office this song was added to the film. Though the song may not be in the top Bollywood song for all time but surely deserved a hearing. Composed by Rajesh Roshan, sung by Asha Bhosle, and written by Saawan Kumar Tak, the song was a solo picturized on Ameesha Patel. The other songs composed by Rajesh Roshan had already become chartbusters while this song served as a bonus to many music lovers.

8. Palang Tod – Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty (2014)

The Palang Tod track from Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty was also a song added after a few weeks of the film’s release. Composed by Pritam, sung by Mika Singh and Ritu Pathak, and penned by Irshad Kamil was picturized on Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, and Govinda. Though many didn’t know about the inclusion of the song in the movie later but only got to know about it after watching its re-run-on TV channels and OTT platforms. Despite having some good music, the film will always be remembered for its action-packed scenes by Akshay Kumar and the commendable direction of A.R. Murugadoss.
