With Mirchi Musical Navras on the evening show Sunset Samosa, RJs Meera and Suren will serve the listeners with a platter of 9 Rasas and its presence in contemporary Bollywood music. To add to the zeal, all RJs on Mirchi will be giving out passes to listeners to Mumbai’s most acclaimed and celebrated Navratri Pandals.
Mirchi Musical Navras is an innovative series in which RJs Meera and Suren will explore Bollywood Music on the 9 Rasa’s on their show Sunset Samosa.

Mirchi Music Navras will commence on 15th October with one of the most important rasas – the Shringaar rasa. This rasa that will take listeners on a journey of songs evoking feelings of love will be the focus on the first day with songs such as Tere Naina, Ishq Sufiyana, Pee Loon, Saibo and many more. The following day listeners along with RJs Meera and Suren will take an emotional voyage of separation and solitude. Songs such as Jiyen Kyun, Tanha Dil, Maa et al will encapsulate the Karuna rasa in Bollywood music for listeners on October 16th. RJs Meera and Suren will then explore the Vibhatsa, Krodha and Bhayanak rasas on the 17th October with songs such as Sadda Haq, Aali Re and Teri Keh Ke Loonga.
On the 4th day of the Mirchi Music Navras, RJs Meera and Suren will delve into devotional and soulful Sufi songs with the Shaanti rasa. On 19th and 22nd Oct, the duo will embark on a thrilling journey and take an interesting look at music that puts one in a fun or happy mood and even tickles the funny bone with the many fascinating facets of the Hasya rasa. Celebratory and amusing tracks such as English Vinglish, Aunty ji, Dreamum Wakeappum and It’s the time to disco will thus make their way to the song list on these days as part of the Hasya rasa. The Adbhut rasa will explore the element of awe or trepidation with songs that express wonder, astonishment and curiosity on the 23rd Oct. 24th Oct, the day of Dussehra, will be dedicated to the Veer rasa with tracks such as Chak De, Singham, Chale Chalo and Main Hoon Don dominating the music play-out.
