‘Mach Gaya Shor’
One of the veterans in Janmashtami song is ‘Mach Gaya Shor…. Sari Nagri Re’ from film ‘Khud-daar’ starring Amitabh Bachchan, Parveen Babi and more. It is such a fun-loving song and it is a delight to watch all of these megastars blended in colours of Govinda.

Vivek Oberoi mesmerised everyone by stepping into the shoes of Krishna in the film ‘Kisna: The Warrior Poet’ and a song from the film titled ‘Woh Kisna Hai’ became a massive hit on music charts. It was soothing yet a power-packed one to get everyone tune on to the tunes of Lord Krishna.
