#RasodeMeinKaunTha: Main Thi? Tum Thi? Kaun Tha? – The Viral rap in India

The answer is Hum Sab The. Yes, the entire nation sang (and still singing) this addictive musical spoof produced by engineer turned musician Yashraj Mukhate.

A daily soap named Saath Nibhana Saathiya has managed to steal people’s attention even after years because of the super-funny antic scenes. Preferred by a lot of meme-makers across the countries, characters like Gopi Bahu and Kokilaben have been on our screen. But nothing closest to what this young talented musician did.

“Khali cooker gas pe chadha diya, chadha diya”… (We bet you can’t read this without singing)

In 2018, Priya Prakash Varrier caught the country’s attention with her viral wink and gun kiss attracting over 606,000 followers on Instagram in a day.

In the case of Yashraj, there is more to this. The video that featured Kokilaben (Rupal Patel) was so overwhelmed after watching this, she ended up calling the artist and praised his work and even invited him to meet her whenever he is in Mumbai.

However, the Universe has planned something more. Much to his surprise, Anurag Kashyap contacted him on Instagram and applauded his work. Guess the best part? The director even shared his contact number expressing his willingness to work with Mukhate.
