rocked the nation with "
reaching cult status amongst the youth! While these songs didn't stop entertaining, another song, "
from Ladies vs Ricky Bahl
was a rage! "Laung da Lashkara" from Patiala House
was another smashing hit! And the last one on our list is the musical piece that everyone crooned after its release "
