Today’s second post is Bollywoody Apna. The Hindi word, Apna, roughly means ‘ours’. Bollywood lyricists have experimented with the basic word, Apna, as well as its variations like Apni, Apne and Apun (a distorted vaersion of the word used in Mumbai). I have selected some of my favorite Bollywood songs where lyricists have used the basic word and its variations, for this post. I hope you like them.

Apni toh har aah ik toofan hai… Kala Bazaar (1960)
