"Made Kokila Ben sing this time. I love doing harmonies"
Social media users have been left in fits of laughter after a man added music to an Indian TV dialogue and ended up turning it into a rap song.
Yashraj Mukhate is a music producer by profession. He used his skills to come up with the funny video.
He took a clip from the show Saath Nibhana Saathiya in which the famous character Kokilaben is seen scolding her daughters-in-law Gopi Bahu and Rashi.
Kokilaben is scolding her daughters-in-law for putting a ‘Khaali’ or empty cooker on the gas.
It may seem like a mundane kitchen dispute but Yashraj’s musical spin made it much more entertaining and it resulted in #Rashi trending.
It was a serious scene but Yashraj edited the clip and added upbeat music to it. He also edited the voices, making the clip sound even more musical.
In the video, music is heard over the serious dialogue. The scene is intertwined with Yashraj playing the beat on a keyboard.
As the Indian TV dialogue gets more intense, Kokilaben’s voice receives a touch of autotune, making the song even more catchy.
Yashraj shared the video on social media and added the caption:
“First World Problems. Made Kokila Ben sing this time. I love doing harmonies, enjoyed this one a lot (sic).”
The video quickly went viral on Instagram and Twitter, garnering more than 3.5 million views on both.
First World Problems • Made Kokila Ben sing this time • I love doing harmonies, enjoyed this one a lot •

The video was enjoyed so much that Union Minister Smriti Irani reposted the video on her social media account.
The musical clip amassed a further 250,000 views and Yashraj was quick to show his appreciation for the Union Minister.
He said: “I can’t believe this!!!! Thank you so much!”
