Mile Sur mera tumhara - Will it ever? Addendum...

For the first time in the six years of my blogging, I am tempted to create a post so short, an addendum to one of my prior posts. The milk has been spilled long ago, wonder why now make it a slime..?

Says the following article from IBN....

"Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar will feature in a new version of Mile Sur Mera Tumhara after fans gave their thumbs down to the song.

Kailash Surendranath, the mind behind the national integration song, said he will soon shoot the song with Tendulkar.
“Very soon we will see Sachin in the edited version of Phir Mile Sur. He is keen to do the song. We had tried to get him as well as other cricketers earlier but they were busy playing back-to-back matches and, moreover, we were under pressure to release the song on Republic Day,” Surendranath, who conceived and conceptualised the song along with his wife Arti said.
The song, which is a modern follow up to the iconic unofficial national anthem of the 1980s Mile Sur Mera Tumhara, has been shot with more than 60 personalities including film stars like Amitabh BachchanShah Rukh KhanAamir Khan, sporting stars like Saina Nehwal, Vijender Singh and also several musicians, was released officially by Bachchan on January 26.
Nath hinted at the possibility of updating the new version from time to time with inclusion of more personalities.
Many have found ‘Phir Mile...´ lacking in spirit due to its presence of many film personalities. Its length (at 16 minutes) has also come in for criticism."

There have been a huge bunch of people who have commented on the video.

At least this receives the royal ass-kicking it so richly deserved!
