Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra often takes to Twitter to share with his followers unusual and interesting content he comes across. However, on this occasion, the 64-year-old, who is currently holidaying in Greece, shared with his fans a personal experience that made him laud India’s “soft power”.
“Am on a trip to Mykonos, Greece. At Nammos, a local nightspot that is thronged by people from around the world, I was delighted—to put it mildly—when the DJ spun this… Jai Ho India’s soft power!” Mahindra tweeted.
The song played by the DJ was Lamberghini — a variation of popular Bollywood song “Tum Rooth ke Mat Jana” from the 1958 film Phagun — by the musical band The Doorbeen.
