2020 is coming to an end with it another decade. Time has flown by but we still hold our teen memories dear. So the 90s kids dug around a bit into the pop-culture archives and found some of the most iconic 2010 moments that we had completely forgotten about. 

From songs that were stuck in our head to movies that made a mark, here are some of our favourites:

1. Band Baaja Baaraat released in 2010 marking the debut of Ranveer Singh and giving us the hit dance number “Ainvayi Ainvayi

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was the highest-grossing film of the year and marked the beginning of the end. 

3. Disney gave us one of the most realistic Disney characters of all time – Flynn Rider with Tangled.

4. Remember this vampire Hindi TV show? 10 years ago we were fighting the battle of werewolves vs vampires with Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani on Star One.


5. At the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, Lady Gaga’s meat dress made of raw beef created quite a stir.
