Before the world went into lockdown and life was normal, award show season was in full swing. The king of this season was Mirchi Music Awards that premiered on television on the 22nd of March. For all those of you who are fans of the Bollywood and Indian music industry, MMA is made for you. And even if you aren’t, MMA will surely turn you into one.
Here are the Top 10 Moments from MMA 2020!
10. Taapsee Pannu serving up some FIERY feminist sass
Along with Bhoomi Trivedi, Akriti Kakkar and Shruti Pathak, Taapsee Pannu gave an impactful performance of her slam poetry that highlighted the hypocrisy and everyday struggle of being a woman. It’s beautiful and melodious, and may just get you slightly teary.
9. Amit Kumar’s retro rendition of Kishore Kumar’s Hits
Kishore Kumar dominated the golden era of Bollywood Music. His melodies are pure magic. A recreation of that very same magic, by his own son Amit Kumar will hit you right in the feels.
8. Meet Bros fulfilling all your Sangeet Fantasies
Meet Bros are energy bombs that spontaneously combust from time to time, but on the MMA stage, they exploded. Their medley of iconic Shaadi songs, right from Tenu Leke to London Thumakda to Mujhse Shaadi Karogi will make you want to stop whatever you’re doing and just dance.
7. AR Rahman being his iconic self
AR Rahman mesmerised us all with the performance of his new song ‘Jwalamukhi’ with Poorvi Khoutish. The Oscar-winning maestro was behind the piano playing a subtle yet powerful composition, which Khoutish did full justice to.
FYI- Poorvi Khoutish gave us some heavy Adele vibes in this one
6. Maithli Thakur’s Class(ical) Act
It still baffles us how someone can sing so well and with such a brilliant range at ONLY 19. Even if you don’t enjoy classical music, watch this just to get some inspiration
5. Sachet and Parampara breaking our hearts
Whether you loved or hated Kabir Singh, you can’t deny that it had one of the best albums this year. The soul-stirring songs and emotionally wrecking lyrics made every cell in our body tremble. Sachet and Parampara made us feel the same with their Kabir-Singh mashup at MMA.
4. Darshan Raval seducing us all
With ‘Mehrama’ and ‘Asal Mein’, Darshan Raval successfully managed to seduce every person at the Mirchi Music Awards. His performance was captivating, romantic and will melt the hardest of hearts, we guarantee that.
3. Deepika Padukone’s Smash Hits’ Medley
If you are a Deepika fan, this one’s for you. She’s done some legendary films, but even more legendary songs. Shilpa Rao, Kavita Seth and Kanika Kapoor (don’t worry, it was pre Covid-19) perform some of Deepika’s smash hits like ‘Subhanalla’ and ‘Khuda Jaane’. It’s a pleasant walk down memory lane and a must watch
2. Sunil Grover giving Deepika Padukone ‘Social Media Tips’
It is common knowledge that India’s biggest actress Deepika Padukone needs to further increase her social media following, and Sunil Grover gives her some amazing tips to do so. This is the funniest thing you’ll see with Grover’s crazy personality, Deepika’s comebacks and Aparshkati Khurrana’s confusion.
1. Sunil Grover’s hilarious mimicry of Amitabh Bachchan
Sunil Grover is a national talent in himself, and watching him mimic a national legend is nothing short of iconic. Watching him slay it with his Amitabh Bachchan impression may just be the best thing we’ve seen all year. Warning- Side effects of this video include horrible stomach aches.
