Video: Jason Holder gives Arijit Singh a run for his money; sings ‘Meri Aashiqui Ab Tum Hi Ho’

If the Indian Premier League (IPL) is a marriage of cricket and Bollywood in India, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have to be the most filmy franchise. Co-owned by Bollywood’s badshah Shahrukh Khan and noted actress Juhi Chawla, KKR are the perfect blend of two of India’s most favourite passions.

When the franchise itself has a Bollywood flavour, its cricketers got to imbibe some part of it. West Indies’ ODI captain Jason Holder, who is a part of KKR, recently flaunted his singing skills. But what made it all the more interesting was that the song he sang was a Hindi one.

2013’s musical hit Aashiqui’s title track “Tum Hi Ho”, which was sung by Arijit Singh, became a rage and youth anthem overnight after its release. You heard the Arijit version; now check out the Holder version in this video here:
