Internet sensation Kili Paul, who is known for his videos of lip-syncing and dancing to Bollywood numbers along with his sister Neema, has now recreated an Odia song.
The Tanzanian content creator has recreated a reel on the popular song ‘Bhal Pauchi Tate 100 ru 100’ sung by the versatile Mantu Chhuria and Aseema Panda.
Sharing the video on his Instagram handle, Paul wrote, “Any Odia fans here. Let’s enjoy this.” Since being shared online, the video has garnered 232k likes with 9562 comments from his fans and admirers.
“Being an Odia, seeing this reel with an Odia song and all your expressions making me love you people even more than before,” commented a user.
Another user wrote, “It’s a such a pleasure to listen to this lovely rendition of a Odia song so nicely lipsynched that you might think they know the language. For die hard Odia fans like us who are promoting Odisha’s food, culture and tourism, this reel makes us feel so good. This also shows that good songs if made in our language can cross borders and spread far and wide. Vande Utkala Janani.”
“You guys are awesome… Lot of Love.. Jay Jagannath,” commented a third user.
With over 5 million followers on Instagram, Kili Paul is a very popular content creator and is even followed by Bollywood celebrities like Ayushmann Khurrana, Gul Panag and Richa Chadha.
He shot to fame after his lip-sync video on Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani’s ‘Raatan Lambiyaan’ from the movie Shershaah went viral on social media.
Even PM Modi praised him during his Mann Ki Baat address and Paul has been honoured by the Indian High Commission in Tanzania.
