During his last address at a townhall in New Delhi on Tuesday (January 27), President Obama set the crowd chuckling at the Siri Fort Auditorium when he said in his broken Hindi, ‘Senorita, bade bade deshon mein… you know what I mean.”

“Last celebration here we celebrated festival of lights in Mumbai. We danced with some children. Unfortunately, we were not able to schedule any dancing in this visit. Senorita, bade bade desho mein… you know what I mean,” Obama said with a smile.

 

The Aditya Chopra directed film which had Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the lead has since then been trending on Twitter with the keyword ‘DDLJ.’ The Twitterati also enjoyed Obama’s Bollywood reference.

The US President picked Indian heroes like actor Shah Rukh Khan and sports icons like Milkha Singh and Mary Kom and Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi to make a point that courage and humanitarian values unify both the nations.
