08 Jun 2021: Pakistani show uses Rabindra sangeet leaving desi netizens astonished

A Pakistani show has left netizens in India, especially Bengal, surprised. Reason? One of their episodes features a character singing a Rabindra sangeet. Yumna Zaidi, the lead of the show named Dil Kya Karay, is seen crooning Amaro Porano Jaha Chay (whatever my heart wants), which is in the voice of Chhapaak singer Sharvari Deshpande. Netizens are hailing the show for its inclusivity.

Social media: The clips were shared by show's creator last December

To note, the two clips were posted by the serial's director Mehreen Jabbar on Instagram last December, but some viewers stumbled upon them recently, and started circulating heavily online. In one clip, we see Zaidi's character Aiman crooning the Bengali song, while the show's male lead is seated in front of her, in the other, she's singing that tune, while sitting with her friends.
