‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ is truly iconic. Everyone knows the song, the dance, the video, and I’m pretty sure a lot of people have tried to recreate it.

So many Bollywood actors are just as great at dancing as they are at acting, but it’s still hard to imagine any of them being able to recreate the ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ dance with the same kind of effect. Ranbir Kapoor gave it his shot, but in my honest opinion, he’s no match to King Khan.

During some promotions for ‘Sanju’, he took a break from being the reel life Sanjay to channel SRK and give us a few seconds of him dancing. One of the reporters asked Ranbir to dance to ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’, and well, looks like he did pretty good.

Sorry Ranbir, full points for the effort but there can only be one Shah Rukh Khan. But wait, this proved one thing – Ranbir is and always has been a huge SRK fan.

We also have a little bonus – Ranveer Singh dancing to ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ with SRK himself.

How old is this video? Plus, Ranveer almost nailed it, have to give him that.

Shah-Rukh-Khan-houseTuesday night saw most of Bollywood turn up at a new Indian restaurant designed by Gauri Khan in Bandra, to bring in a leading Bollywood publicist and talent manager’s birthday.

Though we walked in late, post midnight, and missed the cutting of the cake, we managed to spot familiar faces like Shilpa Shetty, a very cool looking Jackie Shroff (dressed in a leather jacket with his trademark sunglasses on), Sushant Singh Rajput, who appeared particularly energetic surrounded by many a lissome lass around the bar, along with Nawazuddin Siddique, Sonu Sood, Bipasha Basu, Preity Zinta and what has become the lietmotif of such gatherings: a slew of ladies in LBDs like Kanika Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari and Kriti Sanon, along with a handful of non-filmy folk like Baba Siddiqui, Suhel Seth and Shalini Sharma.

But everything stopped when a haggard, (but in a nice way) pony-tailed slight figure slipped into the party’s wee hours. It was SRK; flaunting his (post Jab Harry Met Sejal?) distressed look. The actor, who we met at the bar, soon proceeded to a corner of the restaurant and occupied a table, on which he was ensconced for the rest of the time while one by one guests queued up to greet the Badshah.

But all it took was the resident DJ to put on ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’, and before you could say twinkle toes, the superstar was on his feet, recreating his famous moves on the train top to the delight of all. And from then, there was no stopping him. His latest hit track ‘Phurr’ produced by the famous international artist Diplo had him demonstrating the courage of his convulsions with gusto. Some Tuesday night!
