1. Dil Wale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge
Ja simran jee le apni zindagi
Yeh daulat bhi kya cheez hain, jiske pass jitni bhi aati hain, kam hi lagti hai
Aadmi ke pass dimag ho, toh woh apna dard bhi bech sakta hain
4. Karan Arjun
Main toh samajhta tha ki duniya main mujhse badkar kamina aur koi nahi hai, lekin tumne end mauke par aiisa kaminapan dikahaya hain ki tum tumhara kaminepan ke ghulam ho gaye hai.
Itne tukde karunga ki tu pehchana nahi jayega
Yeh adaalat hain, koi mandir ya dargah nahi jahan mannatein aur muraadein poori hoti hain. Yahan dhoop batti aur narayal nahi, balki thos saboot aur gawah pesh kiye jaat hai
Ajgar kisse, kab aur kahan nighal jaata hain, yeh toh marne waala ko bhi pata nahi chalta
