Karan’s face seems to have been perfectly synced with Rishi’s as he walks around Dimple Kapadia dancing to the music. The song shows Rishi’s character imagining Bobby’s (Dimple) presence at a party which serves as an inspiration for him to come up with an impromptu performance. The evergreen number is from Rishi and Dimple’s hit 1973 film Bobby.
Karan’s fans and friends had a goodlaugh over the video. Meanwhile, Rishi’s daughter Riddhima Kapoor was among the first ones to react to the video. She shared a clapping hands and laughing emoji. Meanwhile, music composer Vishal Dadlani asked Karan, “This is legendary, @karanjohar! Has Rishi-ji commented? That’s the only one that matters!”
All from Preity Zinta to Kajol shared laughing emojis in their reaction to the post whereas Abhishek Bachchan dropped a facepalm emoji in the comments section. Tahira Kashyap wrote, “See your father always knew about your talent and looks! You should have listened to him.” Shilpa Shetty called it “Faaaaaaaabbbbb!!” Dino Morea wrote, “Brilliant stuff...wahhhh, what next??” Nikitin Dheer reacted, “Good one!!” Former actor Neelam wrote, “That’s awesome.”
