On February 24, 2024, Travis Kelce flew back to Las Vegas after a two-day stint in Sydney. The Chiefs TE was in Australia to root for his girlfriend, Taylor Swift, during her Eras Tour. 

After returning to Las Vegas, Travis Kelce went full party mode to celebrate the Chiefs' 2024 Super Bowl win over the San Francisco 49ers with his teammates. At an LA Vegas nightclub, Kelce was spotted hitting the dance floor and matching footsteps to the iconic Punjabi song, Mundian To Bach Ke. He also managed to pull off the bouncy signature steps of the Punjabi hit. 

Note: The Punjabis are a native or inhabitant of the region of Punjab, a state in north-western India.

After the clip of Travis' moves was posted on Instagram, NFL fans of Indian origin were floored by Kelce's unexpected inclination for the desi beats.

 


One fan commented on a tweaked version of Travis' name in Punjabi, writing, “Travinder Singh Kalsi.”

Another fan hailed him, saying, “He did it better than most Punjabi guys.”

"Very cool! And he's got the Bhagra moves down," wrote an Indian NFL fan.
