BollyCurry has selected a few songs that you could dedicate to a friend to show your love and appreciation.

"Yaari Hai Iman Mera" - Zanjeer (1973)

A beautiful song with a deep meaning brought to life by Manna Dey's voice. It is focused on the character of Sher Khan (Pran), a pathan, who would die for his friend and for whom friendship is his faith. The lyrics by Gulshan Bawra are engaging and heart-warming. It is an eternal song which speaks of long-lived friendship.

"Yeh Dosti Nahi Todenge" - Sholay (1975)

This song is India's hymn of friendship. Sholay made the history of Indian cinema with the iconic characters of Jai and Veeru, played by Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra respectively, as inseparable pals. This song, sung by Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey, remains as one of the most buzzed songs even today.

"Tere Jaise Yaar" - Yaarana (1981)

Another ode to friendship, filmed on Amitabh Bachchan and Amjad Khan, is "Tere Jaise Yaar". With its music by Rajesh Roshan and lyrics by Anjaan, the song warms the heart. Yaarana, which literally means friendship, is a story of a millionaire who spends all his money to encourage his childhood friend to become a singing star, and his friend, in return, never forgets him. 

"Yaaron" - Rockford (1999)

One of the most-under-rated-yet-popular song, "Yaaron" was sung by the talented KK. It was never featured in the movie; but was a separate music video shot to promote same. This song is undoubtedly one of the best songs that celebrates and cherishes the memories of friendship.

"Dil Chahta Hai" - Dil Chahta Hai (2001)

The movie could be summed up in one line: there is no relationship in life bigger than friendship. It is a popular coming of age tale featuring Akash (Aamir Khan), Sameer (Saif Ali Khan) and Sidharth (Akshay Khanna) and their life full of masti and fun. With formidable visuals and great music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, this song climbs its way up to our friendship songs list.

"Jaane Kyun" - Dostana (2008)

This is a very catchy, colourful and vivacious song featuring Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham at Miami's beach. The movie is all about celebrating friendship and Vishal Dadlani certainly kept that in mind when he poured his soul into this Anvita Dutt Guptan piece. There is no better thing than telling your friend that they make you live your life fully and this song is all about that.

This is a just quick look at the some of the best songs, in Hindi cinema that glorifies the bond of friendship. We are sure there might be some other (hidden or otherwise) gems exploring this beautiful relationship called friendship. So do feel free to share them with us in the comments below.
