Gujarati folk singer Urvashi Radadiya shared a video of herself performing at a function on the occasion of Tulsi Vivah, a Hindu festival which is a ceremonial marriage of Tulsi and Lord Vishnu. This year, it was celebrated on November 15.

In the video, Urvashi sat on the stage, played the harmonium and sang, even as a man walked up to her from behind and emptied a drum full of currency notes on her. Members of the audience also showered her with money. At one point, there were too many currency notes on her harmonium, so she simply swept them aside and continued with her performance.

Urvashi took to Instagram to share the video and thanked everyone for their ‘invaluable love’. She also added the hashtag ‘money rain’, among others. The geo-tag revealed that the location of the show was Ahmedabad.

Fans reacted in the comments section. “Aatla pisa nu su karo (What will you do with so much money),” one asked. “It’s called magic in your voice...malhar=dhanvarsha,” another wrote, making a reference to the raga associated with torrential rains. Many applauded her as well.
