Indian billionaire businessman Anand Mahindra is quite active on Twitter. In addition to sharing his take on current affairs, the 64-year-old top boss often shares videos that have gone viral on his Twitter account that boasts of 7.4 million followers. However, this time, the video shared by the chairman of the Mahindra group is unlike any other.

The clip shows a couple watching Disney’s classic ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in a theatre. However, in order to propose to his girlfriend in the cutest way possible, a man named Lee Loechler has cleverly reanimated the film. The best part? Everyone in the theatre but his girlfriend is aware of the secret proposal.

The scene shows Prince Philip kissing Princess Aurora and taking out an engagement ring. The screen pauses as Loechler ‘catches’ the ring. He goes down on one knee and proposes to his girlfriend, Stuthi David.

The clever reanimation and the iconic ‘breaking of the fourth wall’ won over Mr Mahindra as he shared the cute video on Twitter, captioning it, “And I thought I had done a good job 40 yrs ago with my proposal.”

However, the top boss didn’t stop there. He went on to share with his followers that the video had given him an ‘inferiority complex’ and he felt that he could have done a better job at asking out his significant other.

Twitterati couldn’t help but adore the video shared by Mahindra. A considerable number of netizens were curious to know how the business tycoon had proposed to his now wife, Anuradha, some 40 odd years ago.

This gentleman went as far as asking Mahindra to share his proposal video.

Indian badminton player Gutta Jwala felt the video was ‘cool’.

While there was appreciation, there was also a request to share it.

Needless to say, Mahindra’s followers loved to see the romantic side of the otherwise serious corporate leader and absolutely adored it.
