- The video from SRK's dance performance is going viral
There is no denying the fact that Shah Rukh Khan has a massive popularity not only in India, he is also a popular name across the globe. The reason we brought this up today is because the actor, who is currently in Melbourne for the ongoing Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IIFM), performed to the iconic track Chaiyya Chaiyya from his film Dil Se and the crowd went into a state of frenzy (why are we not surprised). The video from the event is going insanely viral, in which the 53-year-old actor can be seen performing to the song as the crowd cheers for him in the backdrop. SRK even received an Excellence In Cinema Award at the film fest.
Meanwhile, check out the video of SRK's performance here:
