Birthday Special: Dance to the king of bhangra Daler Mehndi’s tunes!

Today, Punjabi pop singer Daler Mehndi turns a year older and he is all set to celebrate with music lovers with some Tunak tunak tun and Bolo ta ra ra - his most popular songs that are still played at parties.

But there is something interesting about Daler Mehndi that people may not know- he has performed with popular international artistes Deadmau5. This was when Deadmau5 came to India in March 2014. And guess what, they sang? Tunak tunak tun! Check out the video right here.
