Alka Yagnik was at her peak in the nineties, one of the most difficult times to carve a niche in the Bollywood music scene. The nineties had so much talent that it was difficult to survive in the business, let along pick and choose who’s the best. All along, you had Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosale, and then you had the likes of Sadhana Sargam, Kavita Krishnamurty and others. With that, you had the Southern exports making a beeline to the Mumbai recording studios with their re-renditions of famous songs in Hindi, like Chitra.
Here are the best Alka Yagnik Songs from the 2000s
- Dil Laga Liya
Dil Laga Liya is a classic 2000 movie, with a love triangle that comprises of Arjun Rampal, Mahima Chaudhary and Priety Zinta, and somewhere along the line, there’s Jimmy Shergill in the mix. The song is kind of a wedding song, and it features Priety and Jimmy Shergill doing a dance at an engagement ceremony. While the song is set during a wedding, all through the 2000s, you’d hear this song in the dance bars.
- Kitni Bechain Hoke
Kitni Bechani Hoke is from the movie Kasoor, a thriller movie that released sometime in 2000. The movie’s songs were not chartbusters, but this one really captured the audience’s interest. This was the time when public transport was the place to be, and you’d hear this song in their CD players and audio cassettes, especially if you were making a late night ride.

Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega released in 2000 and featured the hottest names in the industry. This was again a love triangle with Preity Zinta, Salman Khan and Rani Mukerji.
