Veteran actor Anupam Kher, shared a 2018 video on Twitter, in which, two Nigerian actors can be seen re-enacting the title track of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, which featured Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.
The video showed the two actors dressed in traditional costumes while lip-syncing to the title track of the 1995 blockbuster film. Instead of the lush mustard fields in the original, the new video was shot in hilly terrain.
