Members of the US Navy sang ‘Yeh Jo Desh Hai Tera’ from the Shahrukh Khan-starrer ‘Swades’ at a dinner between US Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Michael M Gilday and India’s Ambassador Taranjit Singh Sandhu.
Sandhu shared a video of the incident on Twitter saying: “’ये वो बंधन है जो कभी टूट नहीं सकता! This is a friendship bond that cannot be broken ever. US Navy singing a popular Hindi tune @USNavyCNO ‘s dinner last night! ”
The popular Hindi song was composed and sung by AR Rehman in 2004.
