Earlier, a 17-second video of a little girl crooning, `Zoo bhi denge, jaan bhi denge, magar kanger nahi denge’ broke the internet.
Wearing a traditional pheran with tila embroidery, the girl can be seen with two brand new kangris. Sitting in a kitchen, she uses kangris as tabla and croons `zoo bhi denge, jaan bhi denge, magar Kanger nahi denge’.
The lines have been taken from Dilip Kumar-starrer `Karma’. `Dil diya hai, jana bhi denge aye sanam terai liyai’ has been a chartbuster in the early eighties. There have been two versions of this song in the movie. In the second version, `sanam’ has been replaced by `watan’.
The video notched 10000 views on one Facebook page. Different Facebook users have posted the video on their pages evoking hilarious reactions from the netizens.
