Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna`s Pushpa holds a special place in the history of Indian cinema. As the sequel is on floors, the fever of the prequel is yet to subside. Amid the endless fan craze for the songs of Pushpa: The Rise, cricketer David Warner was seen replicating Allu Arjun`s signature step from the song Srivalli.
During one of the World Cup 2023 matches, Warner couldn`t resist himself from dancing on the field. When Srivalli was played during the match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, the ace cricketer shook a leg and surprised thousands of spectators.
Not just this, David also did a Pushpa-style celebration after taking a catch to dismiss Abdullah Shafique in the 12th over off Sean Abbott’s bowling.
