“Presenting #Shahrukh and #Kajol from Kenya lip-synching the eternal love song from the eternal #dilwaledulhanialejayenge,” Kher wrote on Twitter while sharing the video with a hashtag #MusicIsUniversal. He said the video had been sent to him by the film’s music composer Lalit Pandit.
The video shows 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.

Many pointed out that the video had originated from Nigeria, and not Kenya, as Kher had said in his tweet.

The video was originally posted online in January 2018 by a popular Nigerian page on Facebook.
This isn’t the first time SRK’s fans from Nigeria have taken social media by storm. Last year, a video of a group of singers went viral singing many of the actor’s songs and it was appreciated by the actor and other fans.
