The popularity of Bollywood songs and movies in China is not a new phenomenon. Starting with the 1970s and 80s, Bollywood films have remained a crowd-puller in the Chinese theatres. In the past few years, be it Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Aamir Khan’s Dangal, or Ayushmann Khurrana’s Andhadhun, all these films have impressed the audience in China to the extent that they have made some big profit at the cash counters there. Recently, another example of Bollywood being a chartbuster in China was exemplified through a Chinese cab driver who is now winning hearts for his love for Bollywood songs.
Taking to Instagram, a vlogger, Diya, shared a video recounting her delightful Grab ride experience on January 16. The footage begins with Diya seated in the back of the car, explaining through on-screen text that her Chinese Grab driver was treating her to Bollywood music. The video captures the driver visibly enjoying the music, energetically swaying to the beats. Diya praises his behavior, describing him as “really friendly and chatty.”
