With its heady mix of colour, song, dance and general atmosphere of permissiveness, Holi is a festival almost made for Bollywood. Here are 10 celluloid moments that stand out in the long tradition of celebrating Holi on-screen.

In another corner, Amit makes the same confession to Chandni's husband Dr Anand (Sanjeev Kumar).
