Indian fans are being given special treatment in Marvel movies - the first Deadpool movie opened with the evergreen Hindi song, Mera Joota Hai Japani and there was a reference to Hanuman in Black Panther. And now, according to reports, the new Deadpool movie features the song Yun Hi Chala Chal from Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Swades.

Spoilers follow, so if you don’t want to know details about a particular scene in the film, stop reading.

According to a report in BollywoodLife, the song is playing on Dopinder’s stereo when the Indian cabbie is driving Deadpool, Cable and Domino to a destination. Cable is annoyed at the choice of soundtrack and even commands Dopinder to turn the song off, which prompts Deadpool to call him a racist.

Music and Dopinder’s nationality aren’t the only Indian connections in Deadpool 2 - the Hindi dub version will feature Ranveer Singh voicing the central character and YouTuber Bhuvan Bam voicing Dopinder.

Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Karan Soni, Morena Baccarin and others. The film will release in India on Friday and is projected to make over Rs 2,300 crore in its worldwide opening weekend.
