After 22 years, India’s all time favourite song “ Mile Sur mera Tumhara “ is back. On Aug 15th 1988, “Mile Sure Mera Tumhara” – The iconic song was premiered on Doordarshan and instantly became India’s beloved melody.
It featured many national icons of the time, including, Amitabh Bachchan, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Kamal Hassan, Balamurlikrishna, Lata Mangeshkar, Prakash Padukone just to a name a few.
“Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” showcased the diversity of India to establish its message of unity. The song captivated and enthralled every Indian and an entire generation vividly recalls the iconic opening lines sung by Bharat Ratna Shri Pt. Bhimsen Joshi.
