Chori Chori Chupke Chupke




We interrupt this blog to bring you this special news (cause not related to cars or football at all:P):

I've always dreamt of choreographing, singing and dancing to a Hindi tune on stage (actually it never crossed my mind until a couple in my church group (boy's indian and girl's chinese) decided to get married and a few of us have to do a sketch during the wedding dinner). The wedding was last night (25th March) at Legend Hotel, KL. First thing that crossed my mind when i was told about it: BOLLYWOOD STORY!! But since the girl's chinese, so must mix a bit of Chinese culture into it. So the basic flow of the story was:

One day, hot male Bollywood-star wannabe meets sweet female Chinese Opera singer-wannabe on the street. It was love at first sight. The courtship blossoms with them doing a Hindi dance. Guy proposes, girl accepts. They go home to tell their parents (Guy's father is a widower and girl's mother is a widow, implied). All 4 meets only to realise that the father and mother were ex-lovers 30 years ago but were separated due to parental objections. The sketch ends with everyone singing a Chinese folklore song with the lyrics re-written in English to tell that love transcends race and culture.

Standard Hindi movie stuff eh:) Unfortunately, we couldnt do the sketch cause all the actors had really busy schedules for the past weeks and we couldnt find time to practice. (it was good as well since in retrospect, the story was quite controversial and the crowd on that night were quite serious(hungry)-looking. Don think they will see the humorous side of things). So how??? The sketch is in the program already. If cancel, it'll be a big disappoint to our friends. Thank God, I finally got new inspiration at 5pm last night (wedding was at 8pm, first practice for sketch was supposed to be 6pm:P). We wanted to do a karaoke of the Hindi song at the end of the show anyway. Why not finetune the steps a bit (macarena-ise it) and let's just do a Bollywood dance scene? The song, Chori Chori Hum Gori Se was taken from the movie, The Guru. Catchy like nobody's business. So no problem on entertaining the audience regardless of any mishaps on stage. So the results of 3 practices between 6pm to 7pm is here. Hope you all enjoyed as much as I did. One of my Lifetime Dreams fulfilled:P Many thanks to Christ Jesus who provided all the inspirations and my lovely dancers (Debbie, Ann and Liew (Left to Right in the dance))

Lyrics of the Chori (x2) Chupke (x2) with translations:

Chori Chori Hum Gori Se Pyaar Karengey
i will love the fair damsel stealthily
Chupke Chupke Dil Ki Baatein Yaar Karengey
secretly i'll talk about matters of the heart with her
Chori Chori Hum Gori Se Pyaar Karengey
Chupke Chupke Dil Ki Baatein Yaar Karengey

Aane Waali, Kabh Aayegi Koi De Bataa
when will that damsel enter my life, someone please tell me
Dhoond Rahe Hain, Jaane Kabh Se, Hum Uska Pataa
i've been searching for her from a long time
Aaja Aaja Aaja Aaja Aaja Aaja Aa
c'mon, come to me!

By the way, title of the original sketch was called Bollywood and Chinese Opera:)) Message me if you want the mp3 of the Hindi song.
