Mumbai: YouTuber Lilly Singh is all set to visit India for the upcoming YouTube Fan Fest (YTFF) and has dropped the ideal hype video before her arrival. Singh dropped a video where she turns three popular tracks into rap anthems and the Internet cannot keep calm.
The Internet sensation has remixed Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai, Aankh Marey and All Izz Well. She also declared that she will be performing these remixed numbers at the YTFF.

In the video, Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai from Indian thriller movie Khalnayak (1993) has got a feminist makeover. With lyrics such as 'Call me smart before you call me a hottie, I'm a woman with a story' and 'My sister got double Ds, her ambition even bigger', Lilly is literally smashing patriarchy one rhyme at a time.
Meanwhile, All Izz Well from 3 Idiots (2009), tells the tale of mental health and stressful modern lives just like the movie tried to. Lilly spits fire with rhymes such as 'When I'm offline I ain't hashtag goals, Got 20 problems I made up in my head, Anxiety sleeps to me in my bed.'
Lastly, Aankh Marey, originally from Tere Mere Sapne (1996) and remixed for Simmba (2019), seems to be a special request from singer Neha Kakkar. Lilly turns the peppy number into a bi-anthem and raps about love in all forms. The YouTuber recently identified as a bisexual and called it her superpower, and this remix seems to be an ode to that.
She took to Instagram to share a photograph of herself sans makeup and looking all gorgeous. She captioned the post, "Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers. No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same x".
