Moscow: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur were on Friday entertained by two hit numbers from Raj Kapoor-starrer films played by the Russian Presidential orchestra at a luncheon banquet here.
The orchestra played "Main Awara Hoon" from the 1951
movie "Awara", which was the most popular film in the
erstwhile Soviet Union, and "Jeena Yahan Marna Yahan" from
"Mera Naam Joker" (1970) that has in its cast Russian actress
Kseniya Ryabinkina.

Singh and his wife were touched by the songs, whose music
were composed by Shankar-Jaikishan duo, and complimented the
orchestra.
Raj Kapoor and films featuring him had been a huge draw
in the Soviet Union and their popularity continues unebbed in
Russia too.
