Ahead of the Christmas and New Year celebrations, the US Embassy in India has come up with a video to celebrate the friendship between the two nations. The song is “Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge” from the 1975 classic movie “Sholay”.
In the video posted under #USIndiaDosti, US Embassy staff and their families are seen singing and dancing to the iconic bollywood song.
“2017 was another banner year in ‘US India Dosti’. We wish all of you a fantastic 2018,” the message along with the video said.

The friendship video comes at a time when the bilateral relations between India and US are the closest in history, something that is only likely to grow, despite New Delhi turning its back on Washington at the UNGA, voting against President Trump’s move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel capital.
Last month, the White House had termed India a “natural ally” of the US due to their shared commitment to democracy and counter-terrorism.
