Social media has become a great way to unravel the hidden talents of people, who with a helping hand can get an opportunity that they deserve. This is exactly what a Facebook user living in Guwahati did for a talented artist who came to deliver food at his residence. He shared a video of the delivery personnel singing a popular song, ushering the attention ‘he deserves”.
The video, shared by Anirban Chakraborty, features Pranjit Haloi, a young man working for a popular food-delivery app singing the iconic hit ‘Gori Tera Gaon Bada Pyara’. According to his post, Chakraborty found out that Haloi wished to be a singer through his profile on the app and requested him to sing.
“I saw in the app that ‘he wishes to become a singer someday’…I planned and requested him to sing a song. He is so good that I made this video…I request everyone to watch and help to fulfil his dreams,” he wrote online.
Take a look at the video here:
Many took to the comment section to appreciate Chakraborty’s efforts and also to appreciate Haloi’s soulful singing. The video garnered a lot of attention online. The latest video comes at an interesting time as very recently, a video of a woman singing at a local train station went viral and later went on to grab even a spot on reality televsion. Last year, in Pakistan, a man doing odd jobs as a house painter too emegered as a social media star after his singing video went viral, attracting praises from even across the border even as he went on to secure a music album deal. Many wished the same for Haloi as well.
Here’s what people had to say:
The song, originally sung by K.J Yesudas, is an evergreen romantic hit from the movie Chitchor, starring Amol Palekar, Zarina Wahab and Master Rajoo.
