After endless and  tireless efforts by Farah Khan and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), three people have been finally found dancing to the “Dil Jumping Jepang Jaapak Jaapak” tune, without being asked or paid to do so.

Ravi, Sunil, and Sanjay (names changed so that they are not insulted in future) are three friends who have been spotted dancing on the theme song of the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), whenever possible. The three friends don’t miss an opportunity to dance, and even danced to the ubiquitous song when Rahul Gandhi delivered a speech at the CII event last week.

Faking News got the opportunity to interview these 3  friends who were asked to stop dancing for some time, till they finish the interview.

Reporter: Hello guys! The IPL fever has set in, and it seems you guys have been the first in India to have caught the fever?

Ravi: Yes, my friend! IPL flashes and flashes hard!

Reporter: Tell us, what made you’ll think of dancing to this song, when most of the people have hated the song and the steps?

Sunil: Well, initially, even we did not like it. But, then, we went to watch Himmatwala last weekend, and here we are. (starts dancing again before the reporter requests him to finish the interview)

Reporter: Can you please elaborate?

Sanjay: What he means to say is the [IPL theme] song cannot be worse than Himmatwala. After watching the movie, whenever we saw the promos on TV, we immediately changed the channel, and the only thing we saw on other channels, was Farah Khan yelling at people to dance on her tunes! Our condition worsened after that.

Reporter: Oh! So that is how you’ll got into the groove?

Ravi: We tried to run away from Sajid Khan [director of Himmatwala and Farah Khan’s brother], but found Farah everywhere!

Reporter: Do you guys know that you are the first Indians, who are dancing on this song, without being paid for it?

On hearing that, all three had tears of joy in their eyes. And as the television showed Chris Gayle hitting yet another six, all three of them started dancing to the “Dil Jumping Jepang Jaapak Jaapak” tune.

We could not ask any more questions to the trio, as the visiting hours at the ‘Maansik Mental Hospital’ were over.
