YouTube may be a place for music videos and videos of all kinds, but Bollywood songs always rule the charts in India. And this year too, as per the YouTube Rewind 2016 list of Top 10 Best Music Videos of 2016 in India, it is the Bollywood numbers that dominate – whether it is Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra’s hit song Kala Chashma, or Kar Gayi Chull – again starring Sidharth Malhotra with Alia Bhatt and Fawad Khan. The song is from their movie Kapoor & Sons. Kala Chashma tops the YouTube Top 10 Best Music Videos of 2016 list while Kar Gayi Chull is at No.2.
There is also a hardcore music video that is not a part of any Bollywood film, but it stars Bollywood actors in the lead all right – the GF BF song featuring Jazqueline Fernandez and Sooraj Pancholi. Three songs from the Diwali 2016 release Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma, are part of the list – the Bulleya song, followed by the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil title song and The Breakup Song. Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma’s dance number from Sultan, Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai is also there. So is Jabra FAN Song from Shah Rukh Khan film FAN. Here is the full list of Top 10 Best Music Videos of 2016 India from YouTube Rewind 2016, with the number of views as of December 15 at last count:
