The video incorrectly identified them as "Dave" and "Carol" and got over 1.3 million views in a week after being picked up by a lot of Indian websites.

"We picked the song because Queen's one of our favourite movies, and, well, it's a great song! It was also quite appropriate for us, because we were moving to the UK a few days after the wedding," Falk told BuzzFeed.

"Though it was also inappropriate, because I abandoned Alice at the altar when it starts," he added.

"Alice and I love Bollywood. We just went and saw Queen in the cinema when it was released in Australia. We try to watch a Bollywood film every week or two, whether a new one or a classic."

The dance was choreographed by Vivienne Cabraja of Mango Dance Studio in Sydney and took the couple a few weeks to learn.

"We had six hours of lessons. I'm afraid I needed to practice rather a lot. As the video shows, I'm pretty rubbish! But Alice is quite a good dancer."
