K-pop boyband BTS are known for their slick choreography, but that has taken on a whole new meaning in a new clip circulating on social media.

In the clip, Jimin, RM, J-Hope, Suga, V, Jin and Jungkook's dance moves for their Boy With Luv music video has been set to the nineties Bollywood classic Chunari Chunari, from the film Biwi No 1 starring Salman Khan and Sushmita Sen.

The clip was posted in late June, but has been widely shared in recent days.

And fans are loving it, not just because K-pop fans are masterful at celebrating their favourite acts on social media, but because of how seamlessly the choreography matches the Bollywood track.

Media company FilmForFare is behind the clip, and have since made several videos of BTS dancing to other Bollywood classics.

But it's not the first time a K-pop / Bollywood mash-up has caused a stir online.

In recent days, K-pop girl group Blackpink also got the Bollywood treatment after their new single How You Like That was set to a remixed version of Pardesia from the 1979 movie Mr Natwarlal.

Created by Instagram user What The Cut, the video quickly amassed more than 20,000 views.

The same Instagram account has now decided the mash-ups are something of a flavour of the month, and have produced another video of BTS dancing to Akshay Kumar's Hookah Bar.
