    New Delhi (Sputnik): With the likes of American tennis star Alison Riske preferring to shake a leg to Indian songs on their special day, Bollywood musical renditions seem to be leaving global celebrities spellbound while winning Indian hearts.

    It was Riske’s wedding on Monday and social media users were entralled to see the tennis star dancing to a Bollywood dance number.

    Riske - who beat World Number 1 Ashleigh Barty in this year's Wimbledon - married her long-time beau Stephen Amritraj in Pittsburgh.

    Riske opted for the dance track from the movie "Baar Baar Dekho" and later posted the video on Twitter for her Indian followers saying "here’s a little Bollywood to try to win over your affection!" 

    ​Almost immediately, Indians and tennis players all over the world started showering praise and compliments on the World Number 37 for her dance performance.

    Some users commented that even her husband Stephen Amritraj - son of former Indian tennis player Vijay Amritraj - would not understand the songs as he is from south India.
