Priyanka Chopra was left in splits after Jay Sean sang the song Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna from Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, in English, in a new Instagram video. The international singer shared a video on his social media account with the title, “Classic Bollywood songs translated and sung in English,” and sang the song based on the subtitles provided.
The video features the lines “Ye kudiyaan nashe di pudiyaan, ye munde gali de gunde” which literally translated to “These girls are packets of intoxication, these guys are the alley’s gangsters.” It was soon followed by the lines, “Mehndi laga ke rakhna, doli saja ke rakhna, lene tujhe o gori, aayenge tere sajna” which appeared as “Apply henna on your hands, decorate your doli (palanquin). To take away ‘O beautiful’, Your lover will come.”
Jay Sean shared the video with the caption, “Not quite the same innit.️ I deeply apologize if I have ruined this song for ur forever. However I will continue to do these coz they give me jokes.”

A fan commented, “Omg stopppp (but also I NEED MORE).” Another added, “Lol can’t listen to this song normal any more.” A third wrote, “I need more of these. Post Punjabi ones.” A fourth said, “Raj was a true alley OG gangster in that movie. Lol.”
