It is no secret that Bollywood has its followers scattered around the world. The world’s largest movie making industry has charmed Indians and foreigners alike. It is well known that Raj Kapoor’s hit movie ‘Mera Naam Joker’ was loved by Indians, Russians, Turkish and by Chinese as well.
If you think that movies like ‘Dangal’ and ‘Secret Superstar’ were the first ones to leave a mark in China, then you can’t be more wrong. ‘Mera Naam Joker’ had become a hit in China despite the tensions between the two nations. The average Chinese used to watch a lot of Indian movies and it was not uncommon to see Chinese possessing good knowledge about Bollywood.
A journalist posted this video of a Chinese man humming to the tunes of ‘Awaara Hoon’ and this video has taken the internet by a storm. People are going ga-ga praising the man and saying that music has no boundaries.

Better job than diplomats.
Every time in China my taxi driver has sung this song perfectly. Raj Kapoor did a better diplomatic job than our officials. Who is going to bring Kailash Mansarovar back???

Wouldn’t be surprised if this song reached China through former Soviet Union, as I remember this Raj Kappor classic was quite a hit there.
