Indians are stoked by this videshi recreation of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. What do you think of Tanzanian Rahul and Anjali?
The ’90s gave us the best of Shah Rukh Khan and romance to live by. Long before there was wokeness and Tinder, there was Rahul Khanna and his eight-year-old daughter, Anjali, teaching us that when Kuch Kuch Hota Hai you just gotta go to that summer camp and win your best friend/love over. Twenty-two years on, the story continues to prove that love can go beyond years of separation and borders too.
Tanzanian comedian Chatumandota in a pretty iconic reimagine expressed his appreciation for KKHH by recreating the exhilarating scene where SRK’s Rahul finally reunites with Kajol’s Anjali after eight long years. And tbh, Chatumandota & Co nailed it!

From the bag drop to the overwhelmed “hi” to Rahul and Anjali’s signature handshake, the short clip was the epitome of #feels! Can we take a moment to appreciate the dadi too?
We aren’t the only ones stoked by this videshi recreation. If the 60K+ views are anything to go by, the video has successfully won a lot of hearts.
“Your expressions are perfect. You have SRK in you,” one user complimented.
A whole lot of love continued to pour in for Chatumandota’s video from India.
SRK fans couldn’t contain their excitement!
With multiple requests incoming to enact more Bollywood scenes, we can’t wait to see what the South African creator has in store. However, this isn’t the first time Bollywood has gotten a touch of international take. Last month, fans from Indonesia, where SRK and Bollywood are both equally loved, recreated K3G’s “Bole Chudiyaan” from scratch. These find the difference games are getting pretty tough now.
The Arré bench delivers stories that mattress. It hasn't achieved much sofar. But it's getting bedder.
- Bollywood Hrithik Roshan 2.0 Looks like the Superstar He was Always Meant to Be
Hrithik Roshan has always had the starry quality that accompanied his launch two decades ago, but he has since then been more miss than hit. With War and Vikram Vedha, however, Roshan has possibly laid claim to the title of being Bollywood’s biggest, possibly only superstar.Add to list
- Bollywood Bhoot Police Review: A Surprisingly Fun Romp with Saif Ali Khan in Top Form
Bhoot Police is anchored by a terrifically unhinged Saif Ali Khan who along with other adept performances gives us a film that though formulaic has its fair share of entertainment and memorable moments.Add to list
- Bollywood 20 Years on, the Hypnotic Charms of Nayak Continue to Endure
Nayak tugs at middle-class righteousness which explains its cult following on Indian television. Like any good hypnotic trick it lets you believe that come the time of opportunity, it’s only the good in us that will surface. It’s a far-fetched dream, but one worth seeing over and over again.Add to list
- Bollywood 15 years after its release, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna feels more of an opportunity missed to debate infidelity
Karan Johar’s film was ahead of its time in terms of context, but conservative, ultimately in its tropes and education. It could have been so much more had the director not felt apologetic for broaching the topic in the first place.Add to list
- Bollywood The Big Bull Review: This Harshad Mehta Story Feels Like a Wikipedia Entry Made More Dull by Abhishek Bachchan
Most biopics are pedestrian visual accounts of Wikipedia pages of their subjects. The Big Bull is no different. It unfolds as a series of events that have to be ticked off a list and has no insights to offer. Abhishek Bachchan’s lazy and uninspired performance makes matters worse.Add to list
