The popularity of Bollywood films is not just restricted to India but has been enjoyed by fans across the globe. So, it may not come as a surprise if some of the films are actually dubbed in foreign languages.

A Twitter user recently chanced upon an English version of Dhadkhan, and it has started a laughing riot online. The film, starring Shilpa Shetty, Akshay Kumar, and Sunil Shetty, was one of the superhits of the 2000s but this dubbed version seems to have rekindled some special interest among movie buffs.

“So apparently there is an English dubbed version of Dhadkan and I am deceased,” Twitter user Richa (@RichAhhhhhhhhhh) tweeted while sharing a small snippet from the film when Shilpa Shetty is welcomed into her husband’s house.

The word-to-word translation of the lines in English led many to say that it turned the serious romantic drama into nothing but comedy.

While most desi people on Twitter discovered it now, the clip was originally uploaded on Venus Movies’ YouTube channel in 2016 and has over 11 million views.

The clip garnered a lot of attention online not only from fans of 90s and early 2000s Hindi cinema but even critics.

“Bizarre how much like A Suitable Boy this feels,” popular film critic Raja Sen quipped online.

Most netizens agreed that it was “cringe worthy” but said they would love to watch the full version of the dubbed film.
