The Delhi Daredevils were playing the Mumbai Indians at a packed Ferozeshah Kotla stadium on Wednesday. As Sachin Tendulkar struck his 50 off 23 balls, the loudspeakers blared out Twist from Love Aaj Kal, and the crowd did its best to twist! The match had many moods and the DJ attempted to capture them all with filmi music.
When the Devils came out to bat, the DJ greeted them with Yeh Delhi Hai Mere Yaar from Delhi 6. And when it was obvious that they were losing and the crowd started walking out, the DJ belted out All Izz Well from 3 Idiots. Soon after, the Mumbai Indians celebrated their last wicket and the stadium resonated with AR Rahman’s Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire.
In between, when the match broke for overs, the DJ played Uff Teri Ada from Karthik Calling Karthik, and the audience danced and sang along. Wickets, boundaries, sixes and even the drinks break were accompanied by Amar Arshi’s Kaala Chashma and Mundeya Toh Bachke by Punjabi MC.
Twist emerged as the most popular song of the evening, and when the DJ wasn’t playing a song, the audience kept the Bollywood spirit alive by breaking into the Auro dance from Paa.
