Made In India:

Who doesn’t remember the famous song Made In India by Alisha Chinai? The song that the 90s kids grew up listening to and grooving on also made Milind Soman the heartthrob that he is today.  It was the first album by an Indian pop (Indipop) artist to be sold on a scale comparable to Hindi film music albums with over five million copies sold in India. The album established Indipop as a discrete genre and its singer Chinai became the genre’s main proponent.
