The connection between Hollywood and Bollywood dates back to the time when veteran actors like Shashi Kapoor, Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah collaborated with the Western cinema. Among the actors of this generation, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have carved a niche for themselves in Hollywood.
The latest news from the entertainment industry is rather a treat for all moviebuffs who follow both Hollywood and Bollywood.
The surprise is (here comes the spoiler) that upcoming superhero film Deadpool 2 featuring Ryan Reynolds in the lead role has a definitive connection with one of Bollywood’s top superstars.
Yes, you read that right. Like its predecessor, Deadpool 2 will also feature an old Hindi song in the film and this time the song belongs to none other than King of Bollywood-Shah Rukh Khan.
Deadpool‘s introductory scene featured Reynolds sitting in the cab of Indo-American driver Dopinder (Karan Sodhi), who is now Deadpool’s getaway driver, and listening to Hindi song Mera Juta Hai Japani from Mera Naam Joker.
Now, Deadpool 2 will feature a song from the film Swades, which featured Shah Rukh Khan, at the climax of the film.
According to reports, It is being speculated that during the climax of the film the three main characters of the film (Deadpool, Cable and Domino) would be departing in Dopinder’s cab to an orphanage, and it’s during this time that you will get to hear the song, Yun Hi Chala Chal Raahi, from Swades.
But wait! That’s not just it. The coolest moment is yet to come. And don’t read further if you don’t want to ruin the whistle-worthy moments.
Well, as we all know that Cable is a serious anti-hero in the film who is the exact opposite of Deadpool. In Deadpool 2, Cable asks Dopinder to turn the music off, hearing which Deadpool comes to the rescue of his getaway driver and calls Cable a racist.
That’s indeed a moment every Indian fan will love to whistle for as their favourite fourth-wall breaking loudmouth sarcastic superhero takes a stand for an Indian-origin man.
It’s quite safe to say that the buzz surrounding Deadpool 2 is getting bigger and bigger with each passing day as the much awaited superhero film is all set to release this Friday. After the historic run of Avengers: Infinity War in India, we wonder if Deadpool 2 will live up to people’s expectations or not!
Deadpool 2 will be released in India in various languages and the Hindi version will be dubbed by Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh.
