Don’t Miss! Sanskrit Version of Honey Singh’s ‘Dheere Dheere Se’ Video’ : In this time of technology and e-communication, it is not surprising to come across different kind of cover versions of a popular song. Pankaj Jha’s musical debut on YouTube, however, brings something new to the table. Honey Singh is famous for recreating the retro magic in his own style and always has a spot reserved in the pop Bollywood music chart. But this is the time to meet a new name for remaking of songs but not in Hindi or English but in Sanskrit Yes! You heard it right.
Pankaj, who is pursuing his Ph.D. in Sanskrit grammar at the Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, has composed and sung Dheere Dheere Meri Zindagi – a famous song originally from Aashiqui (1990)– in the ancient tongue sung by Kumar Sanu. And his video is going viral online all for a legit reason.

But how did Pankaj come upon the concept of merging Bollywood music and Sanskrit – characteristic features of both are apparently different worlds – into a single entity? “He came upon the concept while in class. A student wanted to know if Sanskrit dealt only with old stories and shlokas. He told him there were songs as well. The kid then challenged him to render a Sanskrit version of the recently released song Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi by Honey Singh. As he could not say no to him. He translated the entire song in the class within 12 to 15 minutes,”said by Pankaj.

He also remakes many songs like Manma Emotion Jaage (Dilwale, 2015), Piya Tu Ab To Aaja (Caravan, 1971). And the video is getting viral also, He is getting so many offers from Mumbai, Delhi and even from his own hometown for remaking and composing the new ones.
The boy belongs to the family of priests in Deoghar, Jharkhand. Does he plan his career in singing? This is yet to be decided by him.
