Bollywood Music: Songs that feature on soundtracks but are not in the films

It has often bugged me why some songs on certain Bollywood soundtracks, are never actually picturised in the film itself.

While I understand that due to a film having enough existing songs/length of time issues, an extra song is not always necessary, yet the films producers often feel the need to add it to the films soundtrack.

When it comes to my favourite Bollywood Music Director Himesh Reshammiya, this has happened to him in a few instances. What upsets me about this, is the fact that the added compositions turn out to be absolute gems that simply lose any attention whatsoever because they are not marketed with the rest of the soundtrack.

I am sharing the links to 4 songs of Himeshji’s below which have been bonus songs. Can you think of any other songs that have been treated this way? What do you think of this bonus song system: fair or unfair? Do leave your comments below too!

Tu Hoor Pari – Khiladi 786

Jabse Dekhi Hai – Bol Bachchan (the picturisation was added much much later but sadly, the song does not feature in the film)

Kya Jeena – Aap Kaa Surroor (this video shows fan made footage from the film only)

Main Teri Yaadon Main – Sanam Teri Kasam (audio link only)
