The iconic hit from the 1997 film Border, Sandese Aate Hain, is taking social media by storm. The reason: the beautiful cover sung by two popular Ladakhi folk artistes Padma Dolkar and Stanzin Norgais.
The song begins with Norgais singing to the tunes all while playing the guitar in his hand. The singer is accompanied by Dolkar who joins in, harmonising beautifully. Even the video is quite alluring as it is shot with the picturesque mountain ranges of Ladakh in the backdrop with prayer wings fluttering in the air setting the mood.
The cover of the song Sandese Aate Hain was shot by the two Ladakhi folk artists as a tribute to soldiers on Army Day.
Twitterati’s reacted to the cover saying that they felt goosebumps after listening to the song and others lamented its short timing and abrupt ending with many hoping for the full version to be released soon.
Many Bollywood stalwarts like Suniel Shetty, Raveena Tanon, Adil Hussain, journalists, bureaucrats etc even retweeted the video expressing their praise for the cover song. Check out a few of those here.
