Social media platforms has been buzzing with the recent viral video of a Pakistani show featuring Rabindra Sangeet "Amaro Porano Jaha Chay."
The video clip is from a 2019 Pakistan series called "Dil Kya Karay" where the lead actor Yumna Zaidi is seen humming the popular Bengali song, reports Indian Express.
Earlier on, the video was shared by the serial's director Mehreen Jabbar on Instagram. From there it caught the eyes of a Bengali named Adil Hussein, who then shared the clip on his Twitter and Instagram handles.
While sharing the second video, Mehreen wrote, "Last of the Rabindra Sangeet sequence in DKK". We can thus presume that there might have been more than these two instances of including Rabindranath Tagore's songs. The team had also got Sharvari to sing the popular Nayyara Noor's "Kabhi Hum Khoobsurat They" in another sequence.
Rabindranath Tagore, hailed as the Bard of Bengal, was a controversial figure in Pakistan. All works of the late poet, writer and composer was banned in the country by Ayub Khan's Information and Broadcasting minister Khwaja Shahabuddin and East Pakistan governor Monem Khan in 1967.
