SHRIMATI 420 - CHOLI
Thodi Filmy ho jaaye? Raj Kapoor's ear for music in films was legendary. Way back in 1955, lyricist Shailendra talks about international fashion, being a global citizen & yet a proud beating heart that is "Made in India". Of course, we add our अबnoरmal brand of Nautanki to this to make it contemporary for the Desi Girl.
