Indian man steals the show in New York street singing 'Dilbar mere kab tak mujhe' from 'Satte Pe Satta'; video gets 5.6 million views


Chandigarh, Oct. 6: Little would have this NRI living in the US known that singing a Hindi song on a New York Street would get him so much fame.

Gaurang Rakholia was randomly stopped by popular YouTuber and artiste Reginald Guillaume, and the two agreed to perform “Dilbar mere kab tak mujhe, aise hi tadpaoge”, a song by Kishore Kumar.  The musical performance has over 5.6 million views and has gone insanely viral.

Guillaume, who goes by the name Guitaro 5000, has been doing his singing on the streets series since 2018. He walks up to random people on the road and asks them to sing alongside him.

Rakholia agreed to his request and sang the song Dilbar mere kab tak mujhe, aise hi tadpaoge.

In the video, we see Guillaume learning the tune in just no time, and after that both of them gave a wonderful performed.

When Gaurang was stooped earlier, he initially, like many others, refused to sing, but he changed his mind and returned. “Oh, he's coming back. How are you doing,” Guillaume asked Gaurang.

“I only know Hindi (songs),” Gaurang told him, and wondered how the American would sing it with him. Guillaume said “perfect”, and assured him that he would take only a few minutes to learn the tunes. Gaurang played the legendary singer's song from the 1982 movie Satte Pe Satta on his mobile phone. Guillaume put on his headphones and listened to the song. A few minutes later, he was ready with his guitar. “I like it already,” he said. “Let's do it.”

“I am feeling really glad that I came back to sing with you! Reggie you are really awesome! I was literally in shock when you responded ‘perfect' to what I said about knowing only Hindi (songs),” Gaurang said.

“Gaurang - You are trending in India. I love the fact that you rethought your decision after walking away and giving it a try as there is nothing to lose at all but to spread love through music,” commented Bryan Rodrigues.

“Gaurang's leaving in a hurry and then coming back just touched my heart. And then he sang such a beautiful song amazingly!” said Winter Bear.-Agencies
