Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, Yashraj Mukhate Offbeat

Singer, YouTuber Yashraj Mukhate converted a dialogue scene from a Hindi daily soap into a rap song, since then people over internet have not kept calm, the Internet is literally flooded with memes...

Memes on a scene from a daily soap called ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya’, have taken over the internet, after a music producer named Yashraf Mukhate “songified” the words of a character named Kokilaben of the show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, that is to say, taken out snippets of her dialogues and arranged them in a form that sounds musical.

The particular character Kokilaben is berating her daughters-in-law Gopi and Rashi for their incompetence in the kitchen in the scene. The video has been attached below, Kokilaben is actually grilling Rashi and Gopi over keeping an empty pressure cooker on the flame.

Upon being asked, the musician said that it took five to six hours were spent over the course of two days for him to create this “rap”. As for why he chose Kokilaben, he replied that he loved the way she spoke, which, according to him, already had a rhythm. He made a few tweaks by adding some more sound to it and then uploaded it.

With Indian daily soap operas long since being the epitome of overreacting and cringe, many wrote that this is the only piece of Indian TV that is tolerable.
