A video of Joe Biden’s statement on the terror attacks the occurred at Kabul airport has gone viral on Indian twitter for an unexpected grounds. Bollywood fans noted that the statement had a familiar ring – it sounded quite like a dialogue from the movie Saudagar, uttered by actor Raaj Kumar.
The terror group ISIS hit the overfull entrances of Kabul airport in a suicide bomb attack on Thursday, killing many civilians and at least 13 US service men. US President Joe Biden vowed to hit back at the attackers soon afterwards. "We will respond with force and precision, at our time, at the place we choose and at the moment of our choosing," he said.
Compare Biden’s statement with the dialogue uttered by Raaj Kumar in the movie Saudagar, "Hum tumhe marenge, aur zaroor marenge, lekin wo banduk bhi humari hogi, goli bhi humari hogi aur waqt bhi humara hoga (We'll kill you. We'll definitely kill you. But we'll choose the gun, we'll choose the bullet and we'll choose the time when we do it.)"
Take a look at the video:

The words of the two sentences seem to be remarkably alike – as many twitterati noticed after a popular Instagram handle named filmhistorypics compared the two videos side by side.
"Inspiration comes the strangest of places," wrote industrialist Harsh Goenka while sharing the video.
IAS Awanish Sharan was also among the many amused by the likeness. He also noticed a possible reason for it. Mr Sharan, after sharing the clip, also shared a Wikipedia screenshot showing that the White House Director of Speechwriting is of an Indian origin.
The video has gathered thousands of views and 'likes' on Twitter.
The ISIS carried out a suicide bomb attack at the Kabul airport late last week that took over 100 lives, including those of 13 US troops.
