Rapper Mellow-D kills it in ‘Dil Hai Hindustani’

‘Dil Hai Hindustani’ is an Indian Hindi reality singing talent show, which premiered in December 2016 and is being currently broadcasted on Star Plus. The series gets aired on weekends’ nights and is produced by Frames Productions of Ranjeet Thakur and Hemant Ruprell. Shalmali Kholgade, Shekhar, Karan Johar and our very own Badshah are the judges of the show.

Mellow-D 2There are plenty of contestants who have auditioned in front of the judging panel and a few rappers came on the show to test their fate. Badshah appreciated the contestants but was not blown away by any performance, but that all changed when Mellow-D came to the stage. I personally know this guy and I know that he is an electric performer and is has a positively crazy personality.

Like always he had an interesting story and told me the following, “I went out with my friends for a casual evening and ended up at a place hosting a Sufi night. I was encouraged by my homies to jam with the band and after the performance, I was a approached by a person from the show who suggested that I should come and audition. I was excited and when I reached for my audition, I was teamed up with Saaz who is a beautiful singer. The pairing was done by Karan (Karan Johar) sir himself.”

Check out the performance right here and it starts around 24:00 minutes:

Mellow-D and Saaz performed their own version of the Bollywood classic, “Chura Liya Hai” and it left the judges as well as the crowd speechless. Badshah was supremely pleased Mellow-D’s performance just like the other judges and have cleared him to perform at the next stage of the show. It would be interesting to see how and what will this pair perform in the next round. We will keep you posted about their progress and wish that they win the show.
