WWE performer-turned-actor John Cena has been posting cryptic photos on Instagram, cryptic because they’ve been ‘posted without explanation, for your interpretation,’ as his bio reads. To make matters stranger, two of the most recent pictures are of singer Daler Mehndi and comedian Kapil Sharma.

Cena has posted these pictures without any captions, so it is unclear whether or not there is a purpose to these posts. In their respective pictures, Daler is wearing an orange outfit and Kapil is doing his trademark ‘thullu’ signal. The Daler picture has accumulated close to 250,000 likes, while the Kapil picture has over 100,000 likes.

Cena’s Instagram timeline is just as random as he’d said it was going to be - there is everything from pictures of a morphed Britney Spears to a photshopped Will Ferrell.

This isn’t Cena’s first brush with Indian celebrities. He has in the past shared quotes by Shah Rukh Khan on his Twitter. The latest came in July, when he quoted SRK as saying, “Neither power nor poverty can make your life more magical or less torturous.” Shah Rukh responded to Cena and wrote, “Thanks my friend for spreading the goodness. It’s important to inspire so many kids who look up to u as their hero.”

In December, Cena had written that he felt fortunate to have stumbled upon one of Shah Rukh’s speeches online. “Your perspective on life is one I strive to attain,” he had written.

“I cannot tell you how fortunate I am to have so many Indian fans. Every day, I go on to my social media accounts, and I see so many fans from India wanting to talk to me,” Cena, who visited India in 2005 as part of the WWE, had told Hindustan Times.

Cena most recently appeared in the comedy film, Blockers. He will next be seen in the Transformers spinoff, Bumblebee.
