Daler Mehndi's Sheila Ho Ya Munni becomes rage online


By Hindustan Times

Are you too singing the Munni and Sheila song? No, we aren’t referring to Munni badnaam hui and Sheila ki jawaani, instead it’s the spoof song Sheila Ho Ya Munni, by singer and music composer Daler Mehndi, that is creating a buzz these days.

The song sees Mehndi take digs at Sheila and Munni and has become quite a rage on internet. Choreographed by Raka, its video is directed by Vikas Gulati.

Since the song talks about the want to kiss, it has left many surprised to see this coming from Mehndi. “Why can’t I make a song like this? People were singing for Sheila and Munni, I just put the two of them together. The song talks about the want to kiss, but there’s no kissing in it. In fact, even Mika (Mehndi’s brother, and singer) had messaged me asking what kind of a song I’ve come out with. I told him, ‘Main toh chummi lene ki baat kar raha hoon, tumne toh chummi le li hai’,” said Mehndi jokingly.

After having belted out many a foot tapping songs for almost two decades, Mehndi has come out with his studio album, Tunak Tunak Tumba, after a gap of five long years. “There’s a song each for every mindset. I’ve even delved in Haryanvi this time, so from Sufi to Mild Rock, from Bhangra to Raggae, to even classical, there is a song for everybody.”
