Odhani (Hindi: ओढ़नी, Urdu: اوڑْھنی) "Headscarf", "Veil", is a song from the Indian 2019 Bollywood film "Made in China".

The video clip shows a musical number enacted by the main protagonists, Raghu (Rajkummar Rao) a struggling businessman, and Rukmini (the actress and dancer Mouni Roy), against a Chinese-looking stage.

The song's music was composed by the duo Sachin-Jigar, and the lyrics were written by Jigar Saraiya (also from Sachin-Jigar), and by the screenwriter Niren Bhatt.

The playback singers are Neha Kakkar for the female parts, and again Sachin-Jigar plus Darshan Raval for the male parts.
