When Deadpool opens with ‘Mera Joota hai Japani’ it feels awesome

Right after the titles fades out, the movie fades in with a song ‘Mera joota hai japani, ye patloon inglistaani, sar pe laal topi Rusi, phir bhi dil hai Hindustani’ and we Indians are left with  a pleasant surprise, what a way to start with! So was there a reason or was this India’s Iconic song chosen randomly?

A source has been quoted in a Hindustantimes.com report as saying that Tim Miller, the director of Deadpool, had fell in love with the song when he had heard it at a New Zealand pub.


According to reports, when Tim Miller made Ryan Reynolds and the other crew members listen to the song, they fell in love with the song immediately. The source was further quoted as saying that when he was directing ‘Deadpool,’ he thought of using the same Indian song that he had heard in the pub, long back.

The original Indian Iconic song from Shree 420

Don’t miss the end credits of the movie for multiple reasons, firstly it feels awesome to see the name of Shankar Jaikishan as Music Director for  rolling up in the end credits and shhhh….. the other I can’t tell you!
