Nag Panchami 2017: 5 Bollywood Iconic song which celebrates the festival of ‘Nagas’

Nag Panchami is the festival of India, where people have been worshipping the serpent god to get rid of bad karma. On this day, people worship snake and offer milk so that the serpent god can give them a blessing. Snakes are usually considered as the carrier of Lord Shiva. People observe fast a day before Nag Panchami which is called as Nag Chaturthi or Nagul Chavithi.

Like people, Bollywood too never missed this sacred festival and made some memorable films like Nagina (1986), Nagin (1976) and so on. However, some songs of these films are still one of the chartbusters of the Indian Film Industry.

So, on this auspicious occasion of Nag Panchami, we present some iconic on ‘Nagas’-

In this song, Sridevi as Nagin created a magic on the screen by her outstanding Nagin dance. The song still gives you goose bumps when you’ll listening to it. Composed by Laxmilal-Pyarelal, the song was a big hit and considered as Bollywood’s best Nagin dance.
