1) Tu Bhula Jise (Airlift)
Talk about patriotism in Bollywood and how can we not include a song from one of Akshay Kumar’s films. This song from Airlift stirs just the perfect sense of triumph and love for our country.

2) Vande Mataram (ABCD 2)
This song from Remo D’Souza’s second installment of Anybody Can Dance is an energetic take on the classic Vande Mataram. The rap by Badshah not only evokes the sense of nationalism, but also gives the message of a healthy competitive spirit among the youth. The choreography of the song is also another plus. Crooned to perfection by Daler Mehndi, this one’s a must have in your playlist.
3) Salaam India (Mary Kom)
The song speaks volumes of the undying spirit with which our sportsersons train hard and give it all they’ve got despite a number of difficulties, to bring glory to the country. Sung by Vishal Dadlani and Salim Merchant, this song fills you with vigour. Watching the video of Priyanka Chopra’s training days (she portrays the boxer Mary Kom) my also move you to tears.
4) Aankhein Milayenge Darr Se (Neerja)
A song that inspires all of us to look at our fears in the eye and face them. Not just the movie, which is a biopic of Neerja Bhanot (played to perfection by Sonam Kapoor), but also its songs resonates well with the current generation of the country. Another song, from the film Jeete Hain Chal can also be added to your playlists.
