Aoora made his debut in India with the song, Tere Jaisa - The Snap Song which featured content creators from the country including Aksh Baghla from Palampur, Himachal Pradesh, Nitanshi Goel and Hitika Sachdev from Mumbai, Tushar Shetty from Mangalore, Akash Thapa from Dehradun, Ardra Unni from Kollam in Kerala, Sneha Bakli from Kolkata, Ansh Kukreja from Hisar in Haryana, Noorin Sha from Chandigarh and Harsh Dingwani from Indore.
His recreation of Mithun Chakraborty's golden hit Jimmy Jimmy has been loved across the globe. Talking about the song, Aoora said in a previous statement, "I am thrilled to sing in Hindi for the very first time and present the K-pop version of a beloved Bollywood song like 'Jimmy Jimmy' which happens to be one of my favourites. This collaboration exemplifies my deep admiration for Indian music and my desire to create something truly special that resonates with fans from both cultures."
Aoora is popular in the Hindi music space too at present. During Durga Puja 2023, he was recently seen performing Dhunuchi Naach at a pandal. Embracing the Hindu culture, the K-Pop singer often visits Indian temples and actively participates in Indian festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi.
