We're not sure if Jos Buttler is trying to catch Sanjay Leela Bhansali's eyes but taking into account the Englishman's very....erm.... Saawariya moment after Mumbai Indians' IPL victory on Sunday night, we can't really write the theory off either.

The wicketkeeper-batsman played an important role in Mumbai Indians' journey to the final but missed out on the Qualifiers and final owing to international commitments. However, when his boys took the field against Rising Pune Supergiant on Sunday, the hard-hitting opener was glued to his tv to cheer his teammates on.

The match was a literal cliff-hanger with MI clinching the match by as single run in the very last ball. Jos, who was in a towel by the time the match ended, broke out in a jig to celebrate and barely kept hold of the towel- in this case, his only saving grace- in the process.

While we have no doubts the celebration was an impromptu one, we can't help but tag it as a reprise of Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor's famous (or infamous towel) dance from the 2007 movie Saawariya, albeit with worse cinematography.

However, the sport that he is, Buttler compensated for the terrible camera angles with a strategically placed blue blob and shared his celebration video on Instagram with the caption, "The winning moment!!!"

In case you forgot what the original looked like, here's a throwback.
