छूटा तीर जो उसकी कमान से
जा लगे जित लगना
चोरी लिखी है भाग में तेरे
तो क्या सोना क्या जगना?
If the arrow left his bow
it goes towards wherever it must hit.
(If) a theft is written in your lot
then why sleep, why be awake?

Mera Murshid Khele Holi (Hindi: मेरा मुर्शिद खेले होली, Urdu: میرا مُرشِد کھیلے ہولی) "My Master/Spiritual Guide Plays Holi" is a Sufi qawwali, reworked as a movie playback song by Indian screenwriter/lyricist Niranjan Iyengar.

It is played in 2013 Indian action spy thriller "D-Day", and it takes place during a fast-paced police chase.
In the movie's plot, this song is interpreted by a group of qawwali performers hired by the chasing policeman's family at some celebration, oblivious of the chase's drama.
The actual performers of the song are Munnawar Masoom, Javed Ali, Shankar Mahadevan, Gaurav Gupta, Rajiv Sundaresan, Mani Mahadevan, and Raman Mahadevan.

The song is mostly modern, standard Hindustani, with some Punjabi words that give it a Sufi, mystic atmosphere.
As it is usual in Sufi lyrics, the subject is the devotion, almost amorous, for God and the spiritual master.
It is composed in a style of qawwali called "kalam", in which tempo and intensity increase as the music progresses, to symbolize the mystic trance of the singers.

Curiously, all along the song the Hindu festival is spelled "Hori" instead of "Holi".
