Australian cricketer David Warner is a great Bollywood and India fan. Every now and then, he posts Bollywood dance videos on his Instagram, where he has over five million followers.

The batsman has also been transforming himself into some of the biggest stars in the film industry using the Reface app, according to a report in a section of the Indian media.

The AI app can swap faces in a video, and David Warner has been making full use of it to 'become' Hrithik Roshan, Aamir Khan and a number of other celebrities. His latest video - already a viral hit on Instagram -- shows him as Shah Rukh Khan from the 2011 film Don 2.

The video features the Australian opener in a compilation of action sequences -- all featuring the King of Bollywood. Warner apologised for the violence in the video and added that his followers would have a tough time guessing the name of the actor. Shah Rukh Khan fans, however, had no trouble identifying their favourite star.

His video on Shah Rukh has been viewed over a million times in less than a day.

It has also collected thousands of comments -- many from fans asking the cricketer to consider joining Bollywood.

One of the best replies came from Don 2 director Farhan Akhtar. "Don Under .. the chase continues," Farhan Akhtar quipped in the comments section.
