While sharing the amazing video with all the fans, WWE India wrote,
“Now wouldn’t @StephMcMahon be perfect for a #Bollywood Movie ?”
The 2 minutes and 15 seconds long video starts with The Singh Brothers talking about Bollywood and discussing how it is the biggest film producing industry in the whole world when Stephaine joins them in their discussion and praises Bollywood. After that, they happened to have a Red dupatta and make her drape it, to portray true Bollywood fashion before they just bust out with some bhangra steps on the hit song. The video is surely minded bobbling and will steal your heart as it shows how cultures can connect a common platform. The tweet made by WWE India has grossed over 2 thousand views and has surely created some buzz on the internet, with the appreciation for McMahon’s dance moves.
This is just another example of how the WWE is also straining their content to gain more viewers in the country where they already generate a large viewership and has the possibility to grow to a great extent.
The Singh Brothers made their debut more than a decade back in the year of 2005, they were also selected as the sidekicks to Yuvraj Singh Desai, or commonly known by his stage name Jinder Mahal, an Indo-Canadian wrestler with WWE. Jinder was also pushed by WWE to the moon in 2017 where he won the topmost championship in the division by beating up the likes of Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura along the way.
The popularity of WWE wrestling in India can be proved by the survey by Timesnownews.com. In an interview with the Timesnownews.com Ceman said
“89 million Indians watched WrestleMania 34, 50 million watch RAW and SmackDown every week, 25 million watch Sunday Dhamaal and the company wants to super-serve the audience with localized content and athletes. This is right as WWE is eagerly followed in India and is one of most watched sports in the country. They are trying to find the next big superstar from India and have also signed Saurav Gurjar and Rinku Singh to their Performance Center last year. Kavita also became the first Indian women to be signed with the WWE and had matches in the Mae Young Classic and WrestleMania.”
