Bollywood movies are more popular than most people think, and not just in the Indian community. 

In fact, a couple who boldly shared their love for a popular Bollywood love song went viral for featuring this song at their wedding. 

The bride, an influencer, and her groom played the song and accompanied it with a little performance. It had all the makings of a good Bollywood movie scene - one that Shahrukh Khan would be proud of. 


Watch how this couple dance to the hit song, 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', at their wedding.

  • "Love from India. Both of you bravehearts executed it fabulously."
  • "I was shy on her behalf until she pulled that falling move…they fit each other"
  • "Many of my Nigerian friends have watched more Bollywood movies than I have"
