Netizens and cricket fans roasted ICC’s official World Cup 2023 anthem “Dil Jashn Bole,” featuring Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh. People came up with hilarious memes to sum up their disappointment to the new song.
India, who will be hosting the latest edition of the coveted World Cup, decided to add some Bollywood flair or ‘masala‘ to the global event, hoping to capture the magic of their 2011 World Cup anthem.
The new anthem composed by renowned music director Pritam, starring Ranveer Singh was released on Wednesday. From its cringey music video to the annoying chorus, the song has been heavily lambasted online since its premiere on YouTube.

Critics argued that it failed to feature any cricketers or memorable cricketing highlights, leaving fans wondering if they had accidentally stumbled upon a cheap Bollywood item song.
Here are a few hilarious memes to sum up our feelings about the new World Cup anthem.
The 2023 World Cup will start on October 5 with defending champions England taking on last edition’s runner-up New Zealand in Ahmedabad. Pakistan will begin off their campaign against the Netherlands on October 6 in Hyderabad.
10 teams are taking part in this year’s event. All teams will play against each other with the top four teams advancing to the semi-finals.
