Doesn’t it perfectly?

It is hardly surprising that Ed Sheeran’s foot-tapping number Shape of You has become a soaring rage. The internet is inundated with several covers and off-beat renditions of the song and it seems like that India is not left far behind. But what if you found out that there is a version with veteran actors Waheeda Rehman and Raj Kapoor?

An edited version, that superimposes the song on a clip featuring the yesteryear stars, has surfaced on the internet.

The sequence is from the RC Talvar’s Bollywood movie “Ek Dil Sau Afsaane” which released in 1963. The video was shared by Being Indian on their official Facebook page and in no time, started going viral.

Viewers are delighted with this unique twist to the song. One Facebook user, Abdul Rehman Khan says “It’s Raj Kapoor’s dance on shape of you before it was cool” while another viewer added “This is just perfect. Moves follow the song to the WORD”.

The craze for this catchy number has spread so far and wide that we wake up to a new cover every day. After Disha Patani, Sushmita Sen and her daughter and dancers Shakti and Mukti Mohan’s mashup; singer Ranjini Hannah has come up with an acoustic interpretation which included a mash up of different songs and garnered positive reactions.
