Tanzanian Tick Tock star Kylie Paul has become an internet sensation. His videos of his lips synchronizing and dancing to various Bollywood songs are going viral on the internet. He received praise from actor and dancer Nora Fatehi for his recently released dance video for the song Dance Mary Rani. Now the social media star has shown her acting ability by lip-syncing with actor Ranbir Kapoor’s most popular song Channa Mereya in his hit film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
He shared the video with his followers on Instagram. The video shows him in his usual traditional attire and hugging a tree branch. Like Ranbir Kapoor, who plays the heartbroken Ian in the film, he is restless and sincerely integrates his lips into the lyrics of the song. At the end of the video, he stood up and danced, as Ranbir did in the original video.
While sharing the video, he wrote, “Channa Maria @ Karanjohar @ Anushkasharma @ipritamofficial arijitsingh @ranbir @amitabhbhattacharyaofficial @sonymusicindia.
The video has garnered over 10 million views since it was posted online, and Netizens have praised Kili Paul for his performance in the comment section. “It’s amazing, it’s touching,” said one user. Another user commented, “Very good.” A third user commented, “Very nice bro.”
Channa Mereya is a popular 2016 song from A Dil Hai Mushk starring Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai and Anushka Sharma. The film is directed by Karan Johar. The song is sung by Arijit Singh.
In an earlier interview with MoneyControl, Paul told the publication that he loves watching Bollywood movies and wants to see Bollywood actors like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Jackie Shroff. During the conversation, he said, “I grew up watching a lot of Bollywood movies. Sunny Deol, Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty, Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, Jackie Shroff, Hrithik Roshan …. When I was growing up, Sunny Deol was my hero. I also love romantic movies and I have seen Shah Rukh Khan’s Main Hoon more than once and it has touched my heart and now even my earrings are like he’s wearing a koyla (laughs) if ever I come to India to see my superstars Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Jackie Shroff I want to.
He said that he was in talks with Bollywood to sing an original song, “Yes, this will be a song by composer Tanishq Bagchi. I’m really excited.”
