Street artist performs Kabir Singh’s ‘Tujhe Kitna Chaahne Lage Hum’ in USA, Shahid Kapoor says ‘brilliant’
It’s not every day that you’re away from home in a foreign country and something familiar happens to you. Something similar happened while walking down an American street, a man heard an artist playing a Hindi song on saxophone.
Twitter user Sumit Patil was in Boston, Massachusetts when he heard sounds coming from a saxophone. But instead of a few Jazz or Neo-Soul tunes, he was pleasantly surprised to hear the musician play Kabir Singh’s. ‘Tujhe Kitna Chaahne Lage Hum’.
With a small spiked bucket in front, the unidentified man in the black suit sang the melodious tunes of Kabir Singh’s song, sung by Arijit Singh. “That’s what I captured today!!!” an excited Patil wrote online tagging the film’s singer, songwriter and cast. “Amazed to watch Indian music on American streets!!!” he added.

However, it is not that unusual to hear Bollywood songs being played or performed outside India. While some went to great lengths to pull scene-by-scene covers of their favorite Bollywood hits, others simply joined other street artists.
