And it’s not just films, even the songs transcends boundaries and are often rendered in different ways, often by those who do not understand Hindi.
In a latest instance, an evergreen track being rendered in Arabic is doing the rounds on the Internet. The track was the iconic Bol Radha Bol from the 1964 film Sangam.
A lead singer and his group of performers first croon to the Mukesh song in Hindi. The video also features subtitles when the song is being performed in Hindi, before the artists switch to Arabic. Not just the energry of the singers, the performers were aided by an impressive set comprising of traditional instruments like harmonium, tabla and sitar.
