MERA JOOTA HAI JAPANI (In California):
63 years ago, the greatest showman of Indian Cinema "Raj Kapoor" and music director Shankar Jaikishan gave us a classic hit: Mera joota hai Japani from the movie 'Shree 420'. It was a film that resonated with the entire nation back then and continues to be an inspiration even today! And even though these artists are long gone, their work still lives on! Now years later, here's my attempt to narrate an original story through the same old catchy song in traditional Raj Kapoor fashion!
