ICC's Cricket World Cup 2023 Star-Studded Anthem 'Dil Jashn Bole' Falls Flat Despite High Expectations
Get ready for the most highly anticipated event of the year, the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup, set to commence on the 5th of October! However, hold your excitement for a moment, as the anthem that was supposed to set our hearts racing, 'Dil Jashn Bole,' has been met with resounding rejection by the masses. Can you believe it?

This anthem boasted none other than the charismatic Bollywood sensation Ranveer Singh, along with a lineup of beloved YouTube stars. And let's not forget the musical genius behind it all, Pritam, a legendary figure in the Hindi movie industry. But even with this star-studded ensemble, the anthem couldn't escape the chopping block.
Furthermore, the anthem also featured the talented choreographer Dhanashree Verma, the better half of Indian cricket team's leg-spin maestro, Yuzvendra Chahal. With such a stellar cast, one would expect this anthem to be an absolute hit, right? Unfortunately, that was not the case.
Ranveer Singh, the hero of '83', expressed his excitement, saying, "Being part of this anthem launch for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 is truly an honor." However, the anthem fell flat despite his enthusiasm.
Pritam, the music maestro himself, chimed in, "Composing 'Dil Jashn Bole' for the biggest World Cup ever has been a tremendous honor for me." But did it resonate with the audience? Regrettably, it did not.
It doesn't sit on the same table as 2011, 2015 WC theme songs. But it's still better than what I imagined they would do. There were instances where it could have been improved but we move with Dil Jashn Jashn Bole...🏆pic.twitter.com/pUGNCc7ySl— Abhinav Tripathy (@AbhinavAT_07) September 20, 2023
Even the ICC, in all its glory, couldn't salvage the situation. They claimed that the anthem embodied the spirit of the World Cup and united fans worldwide. But it appears that they missed the mark!
In a shocking turn of events, fans unequivocally rejected this anthem. To compound the disappointment, the ICC has faced criticism for failing to capture the essence of every cricket lover's heartbeat. Do you remember the iconic 2011 World Cup anthem, 'De Ghumake' by Shankar Mahadevan? That was a massive hit! So, what happened this time, ICC?

So, dear cricket enthusiasts, it seems 'Dil Jashn Bole' has crashed and burned despite its star power. Let's hope the World Cup itself provides the excitement we're all craving because this anthem surely didn't do the trick!
