Mehndi’s Musical Mania

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 01st August:- Daler Mehndi never ceases to stop entertaining his fans. After a super duper hit hatrick with Mirzya (which he refers to the song of his soul), to the 2000 crore spinning motivational Dangal, to singing in four languages for the world’s biggest blockbuster Bahubali .
Daler’s next super hit is his evergreen song “Kudiyan Shehr Diyan” from Rahul Rawail’s 1999 action-packed-drama Arjun Pandit, for a Shreyas Talpade production “Poster Boys” featuring Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol,  Shreyas and  Elli Avram.
The song is originally composed and written by Daler Mehndi extempore during his “Coca Cola Tour Daler Da” on stage in Nagpur and featured him with Juhi Chawla in the film. Kudiyan Shehr Diyan’s new version is done by Tanishk  Bagchi who has previously worked on “Tamma Tamma” for Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, OK Jannu’s “Humma Humma” and “Mast Mast “ for Machine.
Neha Kakkar accompanies Daler on the vocals and Ganesh Acharya has choreographed the song.
Shreyas Talpade quoted that we wanted a vibrant and energetic track for the opening sequence as it sets the tone of the film. When someone suggested this number, all of us unanimously agreed as it fits the bill and has great nostalgic value since it comes from a Sunny paaji film even if it didn’t feature him earlier. And we thought of recreating it with Daler Paaji.
Trivia:-The year was 1999; “Coca Cola Tour Daler Da” was in full swing. Producer NR Pachisia & veteran director Rahul Rawail were on an eager lookout to get Daler Mehndi to give their upcoming film its super hit number. The tour was keeping Daler super busy as they had to wind 30 concerts within 60 days. They finally managed to catch the Live wire Bhangra King at the coke tour’s Nagpur show.
“Hummey ek Daler Mehndi USP wala gaana chahiye paaji,” said Rahul Rawail just as Daler was climbing the stage amidst a huge roar of applause from 50,000 fans and then much to everyone’s delight Daler started singing “Oye Hoye Ke Kudiyan Shehr Diyan”  - the crowd encored “Shehr Diyan” as though they had come rehearsing a song that was evolving, getting created real time on stage, extempore.
Daler Mehndi composed and authored the song on stage–Live in front of his audience dedicated to the front row of girls screaming “D a l e r r r  M e h n d i i i” . Rahul Rawail got his blockbuster seeing the crowd react to a brand new song and Daler Mehndi added yet another jewel to his dance-a-thon repertoire.
 Creator of Tunak Tunak and crowned with titles like “King of Bhangra”, “Messiah of Masti” , “Sardar of Swing” and the “Voice of Entertainment” to the guy who makes “Happy Music” , Daler is currently exploring  newer sounds, apart from churning soul stirring Sufi and Gurbani music.

Addressing a press conference at hotel here today, Dr. L. K. Jha, Senior Interventional Cardiologist at Sarvodaya hospital said that the incidence prevalence of 4 % in our analysis is 300% more than earlier thought of 1 in 10 patients. This is a sensitive indication of heart disease worsening among Indian population.
The study was based on observing around 5000 angiograms done in the past 2 years at Sarvodaya hospital. 30% cases had one artery 100% blocked, 4% had severe heart blockages which are difficult to break with routine methods.
Dr L K Jha added that our observations on risk factors yielding such situation point out mainly at postponing of treatment following primary symptoms of coronary artery disease, high levels of cholesterol and uncontrolled diabetes. Additional risk factors were inactivity, smoking, uncontrolled hypertension. We also underline high exposure to polluted air as potential precursor to worsening of arterial obstructions.
Dr Masaki Tanabe , Head of Cardiovascular Department at Daini Okamoto General Hospital , Japan informed that CTOs are typically the most challenging types of blockages to treat with an interventional procedure. However, in recent years, significant progress has been made in the field. We now have a better understanding of the disease as well as the types of patients who can benefit from the procedure because of technological advances and research findings. With advanced techniques and training, experienced practitioners of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for CTOs can achieve success rates greater than 90%.
