According to reports, students at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) dressed up like well-known Bollywood movie characters to mark “Bollywood Day.” The LUMS photography group (Photolums) recently posted a video of the occasion on TikTok, and it has since been widely shared on various social networking sites. Students were spotted dressed up as various Bollywood characters and reciting their catchphrases, including Paresh Rawal’s Baburao from the Hera Pheri series and Shah Rukh Khan’s Devdas (2002).
The student in the video, who appeared to be from the Pakistani institution, imitated Sushmita Sen’s Chandni Chopra from Main Hoon Na while wearing a green sari. Did you just sing to me? was Sushmita’s line that she spoke. One imitated Chulbul Pandey from Dabangg, played by Salman Khan, by dressing up as a cop (2010). He spoke Salman‘s statement, “I’ll shoot so many bullets into your body that you won’t know where to breathe from and where to,” which goes, “Hum tum mein itne ched karenge ki confusing ho jaoge ke saans kahan se le aur.”

Students went all out, dressing up as everyone from Raj Malhotra (Shah Rukh Khan) from Mohabbatein to Shanaya Singhania (Alia Bhatt) from Student of the Year to the renowned cop from the Bajirao Singham series. A pupil was spotted imitating Alia from her 2012 directorial debut. She spoke the now-famous actor’s words, “Haath mein pom pom leke ladko ke liye chillana mera style nahi hai (It is not my style to carry pom poms and clap for lads),” while dressed in a red frock. A pupil might also be seen wearing Priyanka Chopra’s Barfi avatar (2012).
A portion of social media users were upset that Pakistani students were praising Bollywood, but many others defended the event and offered their support. Disgusted to see them like this, tweeted a Twitter user from Pakistan. One person tweeted in favor of the students, “Why? Did they break any laws when they did that? They only did it for fun.” One more person tweeted, “For God’s sake just let them be. Allowing people to think freely is important for creativity; don’t stifle it.” On the video, an Instagram user wrote, “bordered by divisions. By the same art.” Another individual added, “They all look fantastic.”
