Gujarat Titans are one of the two new teams that will feature in the upcoming season of IPL 2022. The team, who was purchased by CVC Capital, launched their anthem song on March 25, Friday. The anthem has been named “Aava De”, a Gujarati slang that means “bring it on”. The official video song captures the players at the enormous Narendra Modi Stadium of Ahmedabad, which is the home ground for the team.
The anthem has been composed by Dub Sharma and sung by the very popular folk singer Aditya Gadhvi. It also features parts of the Rann of Kutch, the kite-flying festival popularly known as Uttarayan, and the lanes of the small cities to symbolize Gujarat’s rich culture. Skipper Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha, and Rahul Tewatia are among some of the faces featured in the video.
The anthem was first shared by Gujarat Titans on their official YouTube page titled ‘Aapdu Pehlu Anthem’ meaning ‘Our First Anthem’, as they wrote: “C’mon, c’mon everybody says – Aava De, Aava De! Anthem pe chalna chahiye, #TitansFAM!”
