What if Harry Potter was made in India? Have you ever imagined what the theme song would be like? You may have not thought about it, but it seems some YouTube artistes are all set for the desi remake. Giving a classical touch to the Harry Potter theme song, these covers by artistes Mahesh Raghvan and Tushar Lall have created quite a buzz on the Internet.
Dedicating it to Potterheads and to the legendary musician John Williams for creating the tune, the two composed their covers. While Raghvan’s cover had collected more than 35,000 views, Lall’s clip had garnered more than a million views, at the time of writing. Check out the two Indian covers of the Harry Potter tune.
