Yusuf Pathan becomes latest cricketer to join the Dubsmash bandwagon

Cricket and Bollywood have always shared a close connection in India. However, with the advent of Indian Premier League (IPL), this bond went to a different level altogether. Many Bollywood stars gained substantial stakes in the cash-rich league with some even becoming the team owners; most prominent being superstar Shahrukh Khan, who owns the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) franchise.

One of his team’s key players is the Baroda-basher Yusuf Pathan. The shy cricketer, who also happens to be a huge Shahrukh fan, recently became the latest cricketer to try Dubsmash. Pathan watched Shahrukh’s latest release ‘Dilwale’ and liked it so much that he couldn’t stop himself from lip-syncing some of movie’s famous dialogues.

He took to his official Twitter account and tweeted two Dubsmash videos where he can be seen lip-syncing dialogues from ‘Dilwale.’ He even left a message for Shahrukh that read, “@iamsrk #Dilwale enjoyed the movie with family. superb work By the entire dilwale team keep entertaining!”

In the past, cricketers like Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh and Rohit Sharma have tried their hands at Dubsmash. Watch the second video tweeted by Pathan senior here.
