Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s “Selfie le le re” is not just the song of the week but also the parody of the week. From the stable of Shudh Desi Gaane (SDG), here comes a musical take stung by the selfie bug and packed with all the pep and pun, a special treat in honor of Eid-ul-Fitr!
If the Bajrangi Bhaijaan song makers could encash on the selfie wave with punchy lyrics and quirky music, the SDG parody makers are one step ahead. With its shudh desi opening, the SDG spoof features a home-grown Bajrangi Bhaijaan maneuvering every bit like a small-screen Salman Khan tailor-made for netizens. This musical spoof is loaded with moments that go somewhat like, ‘Met with an accident, selfie’, ‘Grandpa dead, selfie’, ‘Bumped in to a bugger, selfie’, ‘Look he’s stalking me, selfie’... In short, its selfie, selfie, selfie, followed by some uncanny hashtags that goes a long way in justifying the selfie mania.
So, come what may, the latest thumb rule goes, Lights, Camera… Selfie! Isn’t it? Let us know what you think!
