It doesn’t happen every day when you are away from home in a foreign land and something familiar comes your way. Something similar happened when, walking down a street in the United States, a man heard an artist playing a Hindi song on the saxophone.
Twitter user Sumit Patil was in Boston, Massachusetts when she heard sounds coming from a saxophone. But instead of some Jazz or Neo-Soul tunes, he was pleasantly surprised to hear the musician play Kabir Singh’s tune. “Tujhe Kitna Chaahne Lage Hum”.
With a small bucket in front of him, the unidentified man in the black suit was playing the melodious melodies of the song Kabir Singh, sung by Arijit Singh in the street. “This is what I caught today !!!” an enthusiastic Patil wrote online tagging the film’s singer, composer and actors. “Amazed to watch Indian music on the streets of the United States !!!” He added.

However, it is not that unusual to hear Bollywood songs played or performed outside of India. While some went out of their way to shoot scene by scene covers of their favorite Bollywood hits, others just joined other street performers.
