Some Bollywood songs are so soulful and melodious that they are timeless. Their beauty enhances every time someone tries to recreate the magic. One of these songs is the Sandese Aate Hain, which was composed by Anu Malik and sung by Sonu Nigam and Roop Kumar Rathod for the movie Border released in 1997.
On the occasion of Army Day 2021on January 15, a rendition of the song Sandese Aate Hain was created by Ladakhi singers Padma Dolkar and Stanzin Norgais. The video of these two artists singing the memorable patriotic song with picturesque Ladakhi landscape in the background has now gone viral.
It has been viewed lakhs of times on social media and has been shared by several social media users. The clip has attracted the attention of many Bollywood stars as well.
While Stanzin can be seen playing a musical instrument, the two singers are seen recreating the emotional song that had taken the country by storm when it was initially released in 1997.
Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon retweeted the video and was seen giving Stanzin best wishes for his future and hoped that the music industry would recognise his talent soon.
The Ladakhi singer was excited to see Raveena’s reaction to the song and thanked her for the blessings. He wrote, “Lots and lots of love from Ladakh.”
