As fans of the legendary music director RD Burman celebrated his 82nd birth anniversary, a musical tribute to his songs by a street artiste went viral on Twitter. The musician has captivated netizens with his talent and the internet can’t get enough of him.
The video, shared by film history handle @FilmHistoryPic and re-shared by Bollywood director Kunal Kohli, featured a musician playing the trumpet to RD Burman’s tunes. The artiste, clad in a pink shirt, played a cover of ‘Pyar Karne Wale Pyar Karte Hain’—the song from the 1980 movie Shaan. The minute-long video showed the musician skilfully blowing his trumpet while spectators in the background could be heard appreciating his talent.
While re-sharing the video, Kohli wrote, “Where is this? Can we please do something for this talented musician who seems to have hit upon hard times. Does anyone know his whereabouts?”.
