"Suits better with this song"
Since the release of the second song Jhoome Jo Pathaan from the upcoming film Pathaan, fans have been trying to re-create the song with other songs that they think ‘fits’ with the dance number.
Earlier, it was a remixed version of the title song from Shah Ruk Khan’s 1999 film Badshaah.
Now, they have recreated it to the tune of the popular children’s song Lakadi Ki Kaathi from the 1983 film Masoom.
A Twitter user shared his interpretation of Jhoome Jo Pathaan, by recreating a version of Lakadi Ki Kaathi over a section where Shah Rukh and Deepika are dancing.
Sharing the same, he wrote: “So apt (rolling on the floor and laughing emojis).”
Other users seemed to agree and wrote back: “Much better (haha and salute emojis).”
Another user commented: “well edited” while another added that they “can’t stop laughing”.
One other user said: “Suits better with this song (grinning face with sweat and face with tears of joy emojis).”

In Masoom, the song Lakadi Ki Kaathi, Urmila Matondkar, Jugal Hansraj and Aradhana Srivastav will be seen as they play in the house.
The film, which also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi, features music by RD Burman and lyrics by Gulzar.
The composer won his second Filmfare Award for Best Music Director for his score.
Meanwhile, Pathaan’s first song, Besharam Rang, ran into controversy after its release in December 2022.
A few politicians and celebrities objected to the saffron attire worn by Deepika Padukone in the song.
Fans also thought that Besharam Rang was too similar to director Siddharth Anand’s song Ghunghroo from his previous film War (2019).
As for Jhoome Jo Pathaan, many were not impressed with the choreographed moves by Bosco Martis.
About this, Bosco Martis, who previously worked with Shah Rukh Khan in Swades, said that the criticism and trolling do not matter to him as long as fans were entertained.
He said: “I believe everybody has their own opinions. Social media is here to voice their opinion and each one has their own opinion.
“So you must do what you have to do and they will do what they want to do.
“Right now we are in such a world where everybody has an opinion and probably we’ll have to respect everybody’s opinion and move on…”
A similar situation occurred when fans re-edited the song Kesariya from Brahmastra using other Hindi songs which also seemed to fit perfectly on the number featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika last worked together in Farah Khan’s Happy New Year in 2014.
Pathaan, which also stars John Abraham, is set for release on January 25, 2023.
