I Am A Disco Dancer...(ta ta tara)
I am Disco Dancer..(ta ta tara)... Zindagi mera gaana...mein kissie ka deewana
This is THE SONG from super-duper hit movie; Disco Dancer released in 1982 which practically made Mithun Chakraborty, an over-night heart-throb of the nation - and is also responsible for making me a Superstar.
Check out the Video -
Okay now by superstar I don't mean it from the Bollywood angle...nor from some stage performance and definitely not from the anti-feminist point of view (oh! you smart ass...don't fly your brains too high).
Actually on this very song I came out to my family (again don't think too much) as in this is the first song I ever danced on in front of my family. And not just my close family but around 300 odd people (strangers and relatives included).
I must be around 4 or 5 years old, it was my cousin's wedding in Indore and we were in the barat on our way to the bride's house. In the middle of Punjabi bhangra music, the hired band started playing 'I am a Disco Dancer' and I just couldn't control myself from shaking my legs to it and slowly the fever reached my entire body....and there I was in front of all those people, jumping around as if I had been possessed. You know just the way that guy was possessed by some ghost after hearing Himesh's song.
To say that my family was shocked - would be putting it very mildly. Others just stopped dancing and circled around me...clapping, laughing, hooting and removing mera nazzar and then giving the money to the light and bandwallas. That was surely some night.
Needless to say after that at every other family wedding....whenever this song was played, people just move aside and leave the stage only for me.
Tell me, do you have any such childhood incidents?
What the heck even your grown-up embarrassing moment would be feasted by us gossip roaches.
So come on be sport and give us some meat.
