Perhaps one of the most potent reminders one can need about cultural acceptance is the universal appeal of music and art. All forms of art have in many instances brought immense joy and recognition for both the art and artist.
In a similar instance, Two video clips of the famous 2019 Pakistani drama Dil Kiya Karay have recently surfaced on social media and caught everyone’s attention.

In the videos, Yumna Zaidi—who plays one of the lead characters on the show—is seen sharing her passion for art and music by singing traditional Bengali songs.
Videos from the drama started doing the rounds on social media after the show’s director, Mehreen Jabbar, shared them on her Instagram.
In the first video, Yumna’s character can be seen singing the famous song, ‘Amaro Porano Jaha Chay,’ while speaking about her interest in the craft.
However, in the second video, Zaidi’s character is seen singing ‘Ami Tomaro birohe rohibo’ in front of friends. The songs have been recorded by the Indian singer Sharvari Deshpande.
Social media users are loving it, especially Bengalis. Some people praised the cultural acceptance and how beautifully the songs are sung, while others couldn’t stop praising the Nobel laureate for his mastery and musical impact beyond boundaries.
