The song was sung by Shankar Mahadevan.
The video starts with the cricket stadium surrounded in tension as the Indian team is about to lose and amidst of this chaos a young guy comes in between and cheers up the team by chanting Come on India, dikha do.
This video was inspired from the 1996 world cup when India was losing to Srilanka which was held in Eden Gardens, Kolkata and crowd turned violent and starting throwing bottles to which umpires decided to stop the match and declared Srilanka as the winning team.
