During his maiden India visit, US President Donald Trump made a reference to iconic Bollywood films Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Sholay in his speech.
US President Donald Trump sent Twitter into a frenzy when he mentioned Bollywood classics Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Sholay in his speech at Motera stadium in Ahmedabad on Monday afternoon. He also showered praise on the film industry. Earlier, former US President Barack Obama had referenced the film on his visit to India.
“This is the country that produces 2000 movies a year from the hub of genius and creativity known as Bollywood. All over the planet, people take great joy in scenes of bhangra, music, dance, romance, and drama classic Indian films like DDLJ and Sholay,” Trump, who is on his maiden visit to India, said.
While the audience erupted into loud cheers at Trump’s references to Hindi films, Twitteratti also went into a frenzy. Fans of Shah Rukh Khan, who plays the lead role in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, were particularly elated.
“US president D. Trump mentioned DDLJ in his speech. BIGGEST STAR of the country SHAHRUKH KHAN. @iamsrk #TrumpIndiaVisit #DDLJ,” one fan wrote. Another tweeted, “#NamasteyTrump @realDonaldTrump just mentioned #DDLJ the iconic romantic movie @iamsrk , Presidents change bt @iamsrk remains.”
Yash Raj Films, producers of the iconic film, also reacted on Twitter. “DDLJ trumps!” their tweet read. Check out some of the reactions here:
