Rajkummar Rao is riding high on the success of his hit film Stree last year and it seems to be wowing the critics at almost every award function. However, what wowed the actor at Filmfare was when his dream came true as he shared the stage with Baadshah of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan. While many actors in the past have expressed their fondness for the actor, Rajkummar too did the same on social media by sharing that special moment at Filmfare Awards 2019.
Rajkummar Rao recently shook a leg with Shah Rukh Khan on the stage of Filmfare Awards 2019 where he danced to his favourite track ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ from the superstar’s film Dil Se. While the song remains to be a cult chartbuster even today, the video of the same had become quite popular then as it featured Shah Rukh Khan dancing atop a moving train. Recreating the same on stage with a makeshift train, one can see a thrilled Rajkummar dancing alongside Shah Rukh in the video shared by Colors. Reposting the same on his twitter handle, Rajkummar said, “I got the opportunity to perform with my idol @iamsrk. I love you sir. One must believe and work hard towards their dreams because they do come true.”

On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan too responded to the Twitter post on the same platform saying, “No no yaar. The fun was all mine. You were so cool to work with & so talented.”

The original song composed by AR Rahman also featured Malaika Arora grooving to it. With lyrics by Gulzar, the Mani Ratnam film Dil Se also starred Manisha Koirala and it became quite famous for its music album.
