Holi has been an integral part of Bollywood and has not just given us vibrant songs but also iconic moments and dialogues that undeniably make us fall in love with the festival of colors and go all filmy! So, as the entire nation is in the mood to celebrate the Holi, we look back at some memorable moments from Bollywood that were based on around this festival.

  1. ‘Sholay’

Bollywood’s most iconic film, ‘Sholay’ had some high drama when the day of Holi arrives in the film. The characters are shown grooving to the melody of the song ‘Holi Ke Din’ and this is when fire catches the top of a carousel and Gabbar and his men descend onto Ramgarh.

  1. ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram Leela’

This is one of the most romantic and intense scenes in Bollywood. As everyone is busy celebrating Holi, Leela (Deepika Padukone) approaches Ram (Ranveer Singh) with a handful of gulaal and goes on to apply it in a rather seductive manner. Well, there were no words needed to set the screen on fire with this scene.

  1. ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’

Holi is the time in the film where the shy and introvert Naina (Deepika Padukone) truly comes out of her shell. Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor) is stunned seeing such a drastic transformation as well and the

two break into a dance number along with the rest of the gang.

This film presents Holi in the right spirit – a festival where people forget their differences and give their relationship a fresh start.
