There is a long list of Bollywood songs which horrifies sexism and makes us cringe every single time. More so because a majority of us have danced to the beats of these misogynist songs through the years. 

If I be honest here, I have been one among many. It is only a few years ago I realised how demeaning some of their lyrics have been. 

No matter how peppy these song tracks are, there shouldn't be really any debate on how derogatory some song lyrics have been. Let's not even get started with some examples here. 

The damage has been done and Bollywood has left us disappointed multiple times but there is still a silver lining. There is also a good list of non-sexist songs, songs which celebrate womanhood, freedom and inspire us to be better. 

So, today, I thought of taking you through some of my favourite non-sexist Bollywood songs of all time. Read on - 

Kinare 

Movie - Queen

kangana ranaut queen movie song kinare

Kangana Ranaut starrer Queen took us through the self discovery journey of a woman who got rejected in marriage. As Rani, Kangana Ranaut turns her tragedy into a happy ending. No wonder why the movie managed to win millions of hearts. One of my favourite tracks from the movie, Kinare arrives just at the perfect time, when she finally realises she is enough. The lyrics are inspiring. 

Jo choti si har ek nahar

Sagar ban bhi jaaye

Koi tinka leke haath mein

Dhoond hi lenge hum

Kinaare...

Rani realises how her journey to Paris changed her as a person and how she has been enjoying it all alone and loving her new self to the fullest. 

Kudi Nu Nachne De

Movie - Angrezi Medium

A special track from the movie starring Bollywood beauties like Alia Bhatt, Kriti Sanon, Janhvi Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif became an instant hit. Reason? The peppy track celebrates womanhood.

On days, when I feel out of order, I often listen to this one. It makes me want to dance and gives me a good dose of confidence. 

Tu Saareyan Fikran Nu Chadd Ke

Bann Thann Ke

Kudi Nu Nachne De, Nachne De

Some of my favourite lines literally translate to just forget all your worries, dress up a little and dance your heart out!

Badal Pe Paon Hai

Movie - Chak De India

 chak de india song badal pe paao hai

In the movie, this one was just aptly placed, right when Indian hockey girls team gets ticket to the finals and reaches Australia.

Baadal Pe Paanv Hain, Ya Jhuta Daanv Hai

Abb Toh Bhay Chal Padi Apani Yeh Naav Hai

This is a song I like to hear to celebrate those achievements, no matter big or small. It makes me believe that once I start moving towards my goals with utmost dedication, nothing can really stop me. Badal Pe Paon is a song all about dreaming and finally achieving our goals. Don't you think?

Masakali 

Movie - Delhi 6

masakali song

An AR Rahman creation, this one tops my playlist all the time. Even today, years later to the release of this Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan starrer, Masakali is one song which stays close to my heart. 

Itdi se mudd, ada se udd

Karle puri dil ki tamanna

Hawa se jud, ada se udd

Phurr phurr phurr, tu hai heera panna re

This beautifully written number is all about celebrating oneself, fulfilling the desires of your heart, meeting your real self and flying towards our dreams.

Jazba 

Movie - Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl

jazba song anushka sharma

Only you can change your life no one else will do it for you and for that all you need to do is awaken your passion. That's what this song Jazba is all about. Featuring Anushka Sharma, though this song didn't get much limelight, it is powerful and deserves to be on your playlist. 

This track makes you listen to your heart and tells you not to set a limit for yourself or care what people say about you. 

Dil ki hi tu suna, dil ko apni sunwa na

Sapno ke pahiyon ko yaara

Speed limit na gawara

Khuli udaano ne pukara

Jaga le tu, jaga le jazba
