Default Need Help finding an Indian Hip hop song with a choir

I was in India in March riding in a Tuk Tuk when the driver started playing a song. It began with a choir singing a beautiful and slow mantra. A man started talking about standing strong like a mountain. Then the bass drops and the song grooves hard. There is singing and rapping. It doesn't sound like Bollywood. It could be punjabi. It is definitely some derivative of hip hop and most likely an Indian artist. The song is beautiful and very inspiring! My partner and I LOVED it immediately and asked the driver to keep playing it on repeat. He told us the name, but it was the right name when we went and actually looked it up. I really need to hear it again! Thank you for your help!

Why don't you give us more details about your journey? That might help. A lyric or two might be useful too

Something like this simply HAS to be bollywood. First choir, then rap, bass drops, grooves hard. 99% that it's a song from a bollywood movie.

The driver said it was Jai Ho from Slum Dog Millionaire, but it definitely isn't that song. We listened to that entire album back and forth, and it isn't on there. I will definitely listen to other soundtracks though! Thank you.

As far as lyrics, the driver said it was in different languages, of which I speak none. So I can't remember anything. I do remember them saying strong like a mountain. The song is about having courage and standing firm. I do remember them singing Jai Ho or something that sounds like that at some point.

Not too many more details. I was in India in March with Semester at Sea. We were there for a bout a week. Spent time in Fort Kochi, Munnar, and Athirapally. Beautiful beautiful place with some of the most amazingly kind and generous humans I have ever met. Still don't remember the lyrics. lol
