Bollywood has no boundaries and this year’s Olympic Games were proof for that. Mexico’s synchronised swimming team matched their moves in the pool with the beats of a catchy Akshay Kumar dance number at Rio.
Karem Achach and Nuria Diosdado danced to the tunes of the “Aila Re Aila” song from the Bollywood movie “Khatta Meetha.” And, the Mexican duo not only ended up in the ninth place but have also qualified for the finals.
