"Mile Sur Mera Tumhara" Revisited – "Phir Mile Sur Mera Tumhara"
Those who used to watch Doordarshan during the late 80’s and early 90’s wont forget this song “Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” - video focusing on national integration and unity in diversity. This video was first telecasted in Doordarshan on August 15th of 1988. That video included icons of that time like Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Hasan etc.
Now as our country celebrates its 60th year of becoming a republic, this video is recreated with new stars and is named "Phir Mile Sure Mera Tumhara". This video starts with one and only AR Rahman followed by the evergreen superstar of Indian cinema Amitabh Bachchan. Here is the first part of the video that stars icons of today like Aiswarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan, Surya, Vikram among others. The Salman Khan showing off his muscles could have been avoided.
The second part I liked better than the first part. This starts with a fantastic performance by Sivamani and this part also features great singer Yesudas, Zakir Hussain and Ravi Shankar. Watch the second part here.
Now here the old one – I still like this one better than the new one
