Selfie Swag­ger

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Ev­ery gen­er­a­tion gets the pop stars it de­serves. If you want to feel re­lief that you are no longer young, google ‘Dhin­chak Pooja’. Her new video, ‘Selfie maine le li aaj’, is a gen­er­a­tional ral­ly­ing cry. Tone-deaf and with­out any dis­cernible tal­ent, Pooja has at­tracted mil­lions of views for her va­pid rap­ping about clubs, cars, and base­ball caps. Watch in open­mouthed hor­ror, and then you twig—it’s irony, grand­dad. Or in Pooja’s words: “Chal re side hoja re un­cle.”
