Thank god for the Internet. Yes, it is one of those (read: rare) days when I’m grateful for social media to happen to our lives. I came across a mashup video, which not only put a big smile on my face but will do to yours as well. It is Sonam Kapoor’s hit song from her 2015 film, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Interestingly, Sonam and Salman Khan’s family romantic drama completes three years on this day (it had released on November 12, 2015). Coming back to the exciting mashup video I am losing my calm over, and it features Sonam as PRDP’s Princess Maithili featuring in “Taki Taki!” Yes. Yes. Yes. Sonam from Prem Ratan Dhan Payo dancing to the tunes of DJ Snake’s hit single “Taki Taki” with Selena Gomez, Cardi B and Ozuna.

When Prem Ratan Dhan Payo hit theatres in 2015, Sonam’s dance performance in the title track quickly caught netizens’ attention. Everything from the elegant hand postures to the thumka and hip swivel made the song a huge hit among audiences. PRDP song also became a must-try for various mashup videos, especially from the West. And three years down the line, Sonam’s dance number continues to receive the same amount of love and attention.

Recently, an Instagram page shared this mashup video of Sonam’s PRDP and Taki Taki. The star-studded 2018 musical single is a rage among fans. The song starring biggies of music and pop industry, has been loved universally for it has one hella of crazy lyrics and an infectious groove, something PRDP does not lack either. Interestingly, “Taki Taki” shares a wacky Bollywood connection (you know, what we are talking about). Yes, Taki Taki reminds Indian audiences of the song "Taki O Taki” from 1983 Hindi film Himmatwala starring Jeetendra, Sridevi! Now, enuf said, go check out all the song videos beginning with the mashup, of course.

Wasn’t it a wonderful amalgamation of the west and Bollywood. Not sure about you, but Priyanka Chopra, the would-be Nick Jonas ki dulhaniya would be pleased to see all this and so should you. As for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, we extend our heartiest congratulations for completing three years of their blockbuster film.
