Businessman Anand Mahindra, who is quite an avid social media user has yet again left people on the internet amazed. On Monday he took to the micro-blogging website to share a video of a Kerala man Saurav Kishan's version of 'Teri Aankhon Ke Sivaa' song from the 1969 movie Chirag. As soon as everyone heard him, they started talking about how is voice reminded of the legendary singer Mohammed Rafi. Talking about Mr Kishan, he hails from Kozhikode and a lot of local people refer to him as 'Chota Rafi.' His video started trending a few days back after it was shared by user Judish Raj who wrote alongside, "At the age of 10, in a stage programme, Saurav sang an evergreen song of Rafi Saab.
