How Rajkummar pulled off the Gajagamini walk

Janhvi Kapoor, castmate from their forthcoming film Mr and Mrs Mahi, uploaded a clip on Instagram on Wednesday showing herself geared up in cricket pads, poised to bat. In the background, Rajkummar, geared up to bowl, imitates her paddled stride. Retreating to the crease, he portrays an exaggerated and humorous walk, which oddly mirrors the Gajagamini charm made famous by Aditi in Heeramandi.

Janhvi added the tune Saiyyan Hatto Jaao from Heeramandi to the post and humorously captioned it, “Mastering the elegant walk with layers of cricket gear was tough, but delighted it entertained you, Mr. Mahi (slurrp emoji).” The official Dharma Productions Instagram account, the film’s production house, joined in with a comment, “That’s how we roll #TheMahiWay! (laughing with tears emojis).” Janhvi’s close pal and digital influencer, Orhan Awatramani known as Orry, cheekily remarked, “@rajkummar_rao has the style game on point!” Meanwhile, Gulshan Devaiah, who acted with Rajkummar in Badhaai Do, playfully challenged, “Let’s get him to walk in leg guards, curious to see his swagger then.”
