Her Story: Marital Home! - 2

The new bride will take some time to get acquainted with her new family. Presenting a folk song from Chhattisgarh which was used in "Delhi-6" (2009) very beautifully. The sasuraal is being likened to a genda phool (marigold). Just as so many petals come together to form a lovely flower, all members unite to make a joint family.

It is a catchy tune with warm, endearing visuals showing a family on a terrace in Old Delhi, busy making red chilly pickle on a mild winter day. But it is not just work. There is singing and dancing too. When Waheeda Rehman is dragged by other ladies to join them in the dance, she lights up the screen with her elegance and grace that hasn't diminished a bit with age.

Singers: Rekha Bhardwaj, Shraddha Pandit, Sujata Majumdar
Lyrics: Prasoon Joshi
Music: A. R. Rahman, Rajat Dholakia
