One of the users on Twitter wrote, "Hope this tweet somehow finds its way to the Indian Twitter. This is the Iranian generation that grew up with Indian movies and on top of all the absolute Bollywood gem that was Sholay (1975), which is the film that these party goers are humorously reenacting. Made my day."
Another user wrote, "Indeed - grateful that Bollywood movies were the rage in Iran and a lot of other Arab countries. Do you know this movie was THEN India’s biggest blockbuster ever? And the day it was released - the verdict was that this Indian spaghetti will not run for more than 2 weeks!"
