90s: Chartbuster Songs

In the final installment of BollyCurry's Eras of Bollywood, we present you with chartbuster songs of the 90s.

The 1990s marked the beginning of an exclusive trend in the Hindi film industry. The era brought forth the talents of the dynamic Khans - Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, as well as the gorgeous belles - Rani Mukherjee, Kajol Devgn and Madhuri Dixit-Nene, just to name a few. At such a progressive point, the music industry also pulled its socks up and soared quite well with the likes of Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan, Anuradha Paudwal and Alka Yagnik. Therefore, in the final installment of BollyCurry's Eras of Bollywood, we present you with chartbuster songs of the 90s.
Go ahead and grab your favourite snack as we take you back in time to a period where tunes hit a more electric chord with listeners. Listed below, in order of their release dates, are some of the more popular melodies reminisced even today.
