BTS leader RM brought much joy to Indian fans when he responded to a post, which featured the lyrics to the song Humdard from the film Ek Villain. An Indian fan had penned a lengthy note addressed to the rapper, dedicating a few lines from the Bollywood song to him.
The lyrics read, “Teri muskurahatein hain taaqat meri, Mujhko inhi se ummeed mili, Chaahe kare koi sitam ye jahaan, Inme hi hai sadaa hifaazat meri, Zindagani badi khoobsurat hui, Jannat ab aur kya hogi kahin (loosely translating to your joys are my strength, I gained hope from them. Regardless of the hurdles faced, I find my safety in them, my life is beautiful, now where else would be heaven)”. The track Humdard featured Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor.
RM responded to the last line, “Heaven is right here,” and added a purple heart emoji. This led to several fans expressing their joy and disbelief that RM actually replied. Indian ARMY was ecstatic and said that they were ‘blessed’, and said that this was ‘unbelievable’.
