Television adds filmy music flavor to the titles!

Thanks to some of our Television serial titles, popular old Bollywood tunes are hummed every day making them unforgettable!

Music is always melody to the ears. We in India are always treated to a variety of score through Hindi film music which invades our lives with all the melodious tunes. We cannot forget the old, classic songs which once again become hummable when they are used on Television.

Hindi film songs have always been an inspiration to our Television show producers and have been used in TV serials as background scores too, however the growing trend today is to give longish titles which are lyrics from an old, popular song. There is a long list of songs which have become immortal since they have become titles of some of our popular Television shows. 

Earlier too we have seen some of our hit Television serials with titles like Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?, Sajan Re Jhoot Mat Bolo, Sasural Genda Phool, Sapno se bhare naina, Ghar Aaja Pardesi, Ruk Jaana nahin, Dekha ek Khwab, Kya Huaa Tera Vaada and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge which were inspired by film songs.

Here, we talk about the shows which are still on air today and as a dedication to the original creators of these evergreen numbers take a detailed look at the song's origin and its creators –
