I roamed the entire world.
I searched across all the streets.
Who knows why I forgot
the whereabouts of my home.
At what (wrong) turn did I turn
because of which I joined the others,
having blundered, who knows why,
with my own (people)?

Yes, let me weep,
let the me pain all night long,
let me lose my peace and comfort.
let the world sleep in peace, I shall stay restless.
What did I do?
What did I do with my own (people)?
Since I indeed defrauded all my own
I lived wearied/defeated.
Therefore, what life?
Of what use/purpose is winning?
It is a victory just of (in) name.
Besides, victory is (wine) intoxication,
The darn victory, is illegitimate!

Not an infidel,
friend, I am not an unbeliever.
I am (one of) yours! Am I indeed not connected
among the close ones?
I have forgotten, yes,
forgotten, but I am not lost.
Dear, show me
the way, please

Dua Karo (Hindi: दुआ करो, Urdu: دُعا کرو) is a song from the 2020 Indian film "Street Dancer 3".

The song tells the story of a young dancer, Sahej (played by the Indian actor Varun Dhawan) and the high price he had to pay for his success.

The video clip shows different scenes of the movie where Sahej is preparing for a dance competition against a rival Pakistani dance team, and he is also shown training, bursting in anger against other characters, participating into a fight, and apparently taking an interest in Inayat, the female lead of the opposite team (played by the Indian actress Shraddha Kapoor).

The song has the format of a ballad, but with a rap stanza included. It is sung by the Indian singer Arijit Singh, the Pakistani-American rapper Roger David (better known by his stage name "Bohemia"), and the music/composer duo Sachin- Jigar.

The lyrics were written by the Indian playback singer and lyricist Priya Saraiya, and the music was also composed by Sachin-Jigar.
