It was less than a month ago that Shah Rukh Khan’s film ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ celebrated 15 years of its release, on 28 November. And apart from the years, it seems the popularity of the love story has transcended even regions. A video of three men, reportedly from Nigeria, crooning to the title track of the movie has been going viral.
The trio shoots a selfie video with the fields in the background for their rendition of Sonu Nigam’s track.
It’s one among them who does most of the singing and undoubtedly aces the tune and the Hindi lyrics without a hassle. The manner in which his friends make the background noises is hilarious, while the three of them singing the chorus together will surely bring a smile on your face. The delight of the men in shooting the video is evident in their wide smiles, and we are sure most of who watch it will have a similar feeling.
The video has already mustered 5.27 lakh views, more than 15,000 retweets and 27,000 likes since it was uploaded on 21 December.
