In a bid to muster support for Joe Biden, the Democratic Party's nominee for the US presidential election, a remix of 'Chale Chalo' from the Aamir Khan-starrer Lagaan (2001) has been released to woo Indian-American voters.

The track, 'Chale chalo, chale chalo, Biden ko vote do, Biden ki jeet ho, unki haar haan', has been rendered by Silicon Valley-based singer Titli Banerjee and released by Ajay and Vinita Bhutoria. The makers describe it to be a "war-fighting song, which draws from the energy of Indian celebrations." They hope it will inspire the electorate to "awaken" and vote for Biden.
