‘Jimmy Jimmy’, ‘Disco Dancer’ At Regional SCO Summit In Uzbekistan

New Delhi:

Bollywood disco numbers “Jimmy Jimmy” and “I’m a disco dancer” have been amongst songs performed at a celebration for delegates on the regional summit of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, that concluded on Friday.

A viral video exhibits three singers, with a girl within the lead, wearing formal black, singing some strains from the 2 songs, each made by the late Bappi Lahiri for the 1982 film Disco Dancer, which shot lead actor Mithun Chakraborty to immediate stardom.

As delegates from completely different international locations danced to it — some even singing alongside — the second ended up as a tribute to Bappi Lahiri, who died earlier this 12 months, and a nod to Mithun Chakraborty’s stardom.

After the 2 Hindi songs, each closely impressed by English songs, the singer switches to a different language and the video cuts off. It wasn’t instantly clear which of them of the leaders or delegates have been current.

Some social media customers mentioned the video exhibits how Hindi films and songs journey throughout the area, if not the world. “The erstwhile USSR states are massive followers of Mithun Chakraborty and Raj Kapoor. I went to Armenia again in July; my tour information knew these two, and the ‘disco dancer’ tune, very nicely,” mentioned Rahul Anand on Twitter.

“These songs are well-known in all Central Asian international locations and Russia,” mentioned one other Twitter person, DP Mishra.

On the intense facet of issues, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the summit. 

“Excellency, I do know right this moment’s time isn’t a time for struggle,” PM Modi informed Vladimir Putin of their first face-to-face assembly since Moscow’s forces invaded Ukraine. 

The feedback from PM Modi got here a day after President Putin acknowledged that China — Russia’s key ally — had “considerations” over the battle in Ukraine.
