Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) star all-rounder Andre Russell was recently seen grooving to the franchise' co-owner Shah Rukh Khan's ‘Jawan’ movie’s viral song ‘Ramaiya Vastavaiya.’
The West Indies all-rounder proved that he can deliver both on and off the field. He put all his energy and rhythm on full display as he danced to the trending tune that has set the internet on fire.
In a video shared by KKR on X (formerly known as Twitter), Russell, who was clad in a black outfit, can be seen acing the dance challenge. The Knight Riders captioned the video:
“Acing the #NotRamaiyaVastavaiya challenge in classic Dre Russ style!”

“I am available” – Andre Russell wants to play 2024 World Cup

“I am available. I want to be a part of the next World Cup so that would be something special to me if they can add me to the squad. I am willing to play a couple of series to make myself available. I am not just going to turn up and say I want to play at the World Cup from nothing at all.”
"I know how everything works; I know I have to sacrifice a couple of leagues in order to play for West Indies. I am willing to do that and try to give them the best chance in the World Cup, and whatever I can contribute in whatever area, I am willing to do it.”
Andre Russell has played 67 T20Is, amassing 741 runs, and scalped 70 wickets so far. He, however, has played 460 T20s, with 7691 runs and 408 scalps.
