The song has also returned to the top 10 in the YouTube Global charts last week after dropping to number 11.

Manike Mage Hithe drew India’s attention after Amitabh Bachchan shared a video of him dancing to the Hindi version of the track.

Bachchan had said that his granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda edited the dance sequence from his iconic film Kaalia and replaced the original song ‘Jahan Teri Yeh Nazar Hai’ with ‘Manike Mage Hithe’ in the video.

Later Tiger Shroff, Madhuri Dixit, Parineeti Chopra, musician Sonu Nigam and Indian music producer, composer and social media personality Yashraj Mukhate danced to the tune of ‘Manike Mage Hithe’.

In addition, an IndiGo air hostess also danced to the track in a viral video.

A number of covers have also been recorded of the song in different languages the world over. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Please watch the attached world class performance. Only 5.6 million people watched this world class musicians, but Yohani’s song ‘Manike Mage Hithe’ viewed by 150 million people. Clearly, the West and India are deliberately exalting Yohani to expand their soft power in Sri Lanka to counter China. The foolish Sri Lankan politicians have fallen into the trap and made Sri Lanka as a battle ground for regional and world powers to fight. China helped to conclude the civil war, helping to fight against war crimes and invested in billions in port city project but fools are going behind Indians and westerners who created terrorism and destroyed Sri Lanka. The same mindset which kicked out Britain to go behind Indians to become vulnerable to terrorism and poverty. Britain developed Sri Lanka to maintain its image. After Britain was kicked out, it has been dividing and conquering Sri Lanka, especially through Tamil diaspora. Fools you don’t kick out world power before establishing yourselves in developments, stable economy, knowledge, unity and security.
