Black Eyed Peas’ song ‘Action’ features scenes from Bollywood and Kollywood movies like Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, Ajay Devgn’s Singham.

The music video is packed with humour sharing the magic of Indian cinema entertainment. The song ‘Action’ features scenes from Indian movies like Rajinikanth’s Enthiran, Vishal’s Aambala, Ajay Devgn’s Singham and others. The action scenes are identical to the original, except for the faces of the actors, upon which Black Eyed Peas members will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo have superimposed their own faces through deep fake technology. Scenes from the Swedish movie Kopps and Maryada Ramanna also appear in Action’s music video. The lead member of the band, William Adams, better known as will.i.am, shared the music video on Twitter. He wrote, “Check out our video for #ACTION inspired by #BOLLYWOOD…ive always loved music from india…#Elephunk and #MonkeyBusiness were inspired by Indian Culture…thank you india for your vibrancy and contribution to the world…”

Music Maestro AR Rahman approved of the music video and quote-tweeted will.i.am’s tweet, “The borders are blurring through art! #tamilcinema @directorshankar #rajnikant #india.”
