Spanish football club Real Madrid took to social media to share a video honouring their star player Jude Bellingham. What’s more is that the club ingeniously used a Shah Rukh Khan dialogue and song in the celebratory post. Expectedly, the video has gone viral and elicited a flurry of responses from fans.
“Our Baadshah of this #ElClásico,” reads the caption written alongside the video shared on Instagram by Real Madrid. The video, a montage of clips, opens with the iconic Baazigar dialogue by Shah Rukh Khan – “Haar kar jeetne wale ko Baazigar kehte hain [One who wins after losing is called a Baazigar]” as Bellingham can be seen scoring goals for his team. As the video goes on, Shah Rukh Khan and Twinkle Khanna’s song Woh Ladki Jo plays as the background score. Bellingham scored two goals that guided his team to victory in the El Clasico against FC Barcelona on October 28.
