On September 11, people from Delhi and Mumbai came together, thanks to one song — ‘Bolna Aunty Aun Kya’. An event invite to friends on Facebook resulted in many people coming together to chant the rap song.
If you are wondering why they came together, here is the backgrounder: In 2015, a young and utterly confident rapper, Omprakash Mishra, ventured into YouTube with what he had to offer — ‘Aunty Ki Ghanti’ a rap song about a young boy’s infatuation with a woman who is relatively older to him. The video went on to attain cult status because cringe pop (a la Dhinchak Pooja and Baba Sehgal) has been recently noticing an uptake in fan following and got many talking in no time.
So a Facebook page called ‘Sh*t Indians Say’ organised the event titled Project Omprakash (after the name of the rapper ‘rap king’) in Delhi while in Mumbai the hugely popular page Unofficial: Bombay High Court did the honours, calling one and all to gather and make it happen.
