On Sunday, he added a video showing that no matter where in the world you may go, someone will always be around taking videos and selfies. JD captioned the video, "Mountains gives you so much #Happiness #joy #laughter #madness #fun #love #friendly #spirituality." In the video, he and the local woman joyously film one another. They both burst out laughing and he later asks her, "Accha laga yeh?(Did you like it?). She replies in the affirmative and shares the peace sign.
He also shared another video of himself climbing up a rocky trekking path while singing the Kishore Kumar song Chalte Chalte Mere Yeh Geet. Composed by Bappi Lahiri, the song is from the 1976 film Chalte Chalte. JD is dressed in black and grey pants, a red long-sleeved T-shirt, grey jacket and sunglasses. His backpack secured to his body, JD used a walking stick for the uneven terrain. He also covered his head with a black beanie hat with the Superman logo.
