We’ve been hearing, reading and watching all kinds of interesting stories from the Rio Olympics. From Dipa Karmakar’s perfect Produnova to Michael Phelps’ outstanding performance, Fu Yuanhui’s antics to Simone Biles’ amazing poise, there’s been a lot to talk about and marvel at. But with tons of emotions and surprises, and even surprise proposals, this year’s Olympics have clearly been more than just sports.
And just when we thought we’d seen it all, here come the Mexicans with their synchronised swimming. And that too to a Bollywood number. Yes, you read that right!
With Deepika Padukone starring in XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage alongside Vin Diesel, Priyanka Chopra’s claim to international fame with Quantico, Bollywood is definitely going global. But making a mark at the Rio Olympics? Now that’s an all new high!
The Mexican pair of Karem Achach and Nuria Diosdado, chose Akshay Kumar’s Aila Re Aila song from the film Khatta Meetha, for their finals in the synchronised swimming event at the 2016 Olympics.
With neon costumes, beautiful smiles and some crazy Bollywood dancing in the Olympic pool, the duo’s performance was pretty darn awesome!
Here is the video..
