Mysuru: Indian rapper and music composer Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia, known as Bollywood Badshah, along with Hindi Playback singer Aastha Gill stole the show at the second day of Yuva Dasara held at Maharaja’s College Grounds yesterday evening.
The venue was jam-packed with youths, students and tourists who had come from across the country to watch the event.
The youths went crazy to the song Wakhra Swag sung in modern style by Badshah.
Though the youths immersed themselves listening and dancing to the songs, the stage performances performed by the singers provoked the audience to sing and dance at the event which drew criticism from elders. The elders felt that they were not able to listen to the songs clearly and enjoy the music as the singers make the audience to sing along with them and dance from all sides.
Lagori team: The lyrical and musical performance of Lagori team enthralled the audience. The singing of songs written by renowned poets in modern style drew huge applause from the audience. They sung the songs like G.P. Rajarathnam’s Helkollak Onduru Talemyale Ondu Suru Malgakke Bhoomthayi Mancha, Brahmaninge Jodusthini Henda Muttida Kaina, Taravalla Tagi Ninna Tamburui, Marikannu Horiy Myage, Katukan Kannu Kurimyage, which thrilled the youths.
Lagori Team’s brand song Enaiah Ninna Chaye, Enaiah Ninna Maye, Nim Lokadalli Onde Brandu, Namma Lokadalli Nooraaru Brandu and songs like Kuladallli Keelyavudo Hucchappa, Matadalli Melyavudo among others also captivated the audience.

Street youth dance and sound from plastic twirl hose pipe instruments disrupted the audience at the Yuva Dasara celebrations with its shrieking sound which irritated the audience.
The Yuva Dasara celebrations which has been organised by Dasara Executive Committee will go on till Oct.17 in city.
Ridiculous…Mysuru Dasara is about our culture. Why should the organizers force bollywood on us? We have such a deep talent pool of Kannada Karnataka artists who need our patronage. We youngsters love the new Kannada rap artists, standup comedians, dance troupes and budding sandalwood song artists. Why should we be force fed hindi trash?
