FYI if you are planning to catch Ryan Reynold starring in Deadpool this week, be prepared for a pleasant shocker. The film’s opening sequence has a very interesting connection with Bollywood. Right in the opening sequence of the film, you have the popular song from Raj Kapoor's film, 'Shree 420' in the background.
Well, it's all a part of a scene in the film. In the scene, Raj Kapoor’s iconic song, 'Mera Joota Hai Japani’, is being played inside the cab radio as part of background music.
Well, this is not the first time that Indian film music has found a global audience. But it's not just Hollywood that has helped the Hindi film industry, our own songs (that we are so proud of) have made it to the English films ( I guess, but just the classics).
Well here are some of them, have a look
The Inside Man, the opening sequence of the film had popular Bollywood number, 'Chhaiya Chhaiya', playing in the background.
The Dictator's trailer had 'Mundya Tu Bach Ke Rahi'
Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless had 'Mind Mera Man Tera Pyaasa'
Moulin Rouge had 'Chamma Chamma'
