New Delhi:

Mohanlal's dance performance to Zinda Banda from the smash hit Jawan at an award show in Kochi, got the biggest shout out from Shah Rukh Khan. The superstar reacted to the viral video shared by a fan page dedicated to him on X (earlier known as Twitter) and he wrote, "Thank you Mohanlal Sir for making this song the most special for me now. Wish I had done it half as good as you. Love you Sir and waiting for dinner at home as and when. You are the OG Zinda Banda." Wait, it gets better. Now, superstar Mohanlal has reacted to SRK's reply. "Dear Shah Rukh Khan, nobody can do it like you! You are and always will be the OG Zinda Banda in your classic, inimitable style. Thanks for your kind words. Also, just dinner? Why not groove to some Zinda Banda over breakfast, too," read Mohanlal's post.
