One doesn’t have to always bow his/her head in reverence to pay their respect to Bappa. It can be in any form one feels most comfortable in doing–whether through a song, dance, or a heart to heart conversation. After all, it all boils down to one thing—your personal connection with Bappa. If it’s a song, it need not always be somber and if it’s a dance, it need not always be classical or slow paced and unrushed. If you’ve heard Any Body Can Dance (ABCD’s) song, Sadda Dil Vi Tu, you’ll know what we mean.
The song is unlike anything you’ve heard before. Composed by the very talented music director duo, Sachin-Jigar, Sadda Dil Vi Tu is a hip-hop number that has singer Hard Kaur rapping and the dancers grooving to the upbeat and energetic beats of the song. In the film, the track is not part of any Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations but is a dance sequence that has the star cast, an underdog group led by Prabhu Deva, recreate the entire festival on stage in a large than life manner with synchronized dance steps. The dancers include Lauren Gottlieb-a judge at Jhalak Dikhlaja and former Dance India Dance (DID) contestants Punit Pathak, Salman Yusuf Khan, Noorin Sha, Dharmesh Yelande and others. The performance was the finale dance in a competition that the group had been vying to win and needless to say they’re able to impress everyone with this impeccable dance performance in the film.

While the dance is impressive, so are the lyrics of the song, which is peppy and personal, and we bet it’s unlike any other Ganpati song you’ve heard before. Penned by lyricist Mayur Puri, the song goes as follows:
Now move your head around, Move your head around…
Move your head around, You know he’s got my back (x2)
Now raise your voice, Make some noise for Bappa Morya”
This is later juxtaposed with the traditional Ganpati Aarti which makes the track even more interesting. Don’t you think? Let us know in the comments’ section below.
