Step aside, Shah Rukh and Saif. There's some new heroes in town.

In a highly offbeat diplomatic exercise, the German Embassy (New Delhi) has just produced a (very faithful) recreation of the "Kal Ho Naa Ho" title song.

The video is titled "Lebe Jetzt", or "Live in the now" in German. It aims to use art and culture to strengthen ties between the people of the two countries.

It stars the German Ambassador to India, Michael Steiner, in Shah Rukh Khan's role.

And former Minister of External Affairs Salman Khurshid doing a hilariously spot on job in Saif Ali Khan's part.

It also has writer and journalist Madhu Kishwar in the most GIFable cameo ever.

To be fair, the entire thing is full of GIFable moments.

When bae doesn't approve of your outfit.

It's a video with participants so sporting, it's actually a hoot to watch.

But that's only once you get used to the amusing strangeness of it all.

The internet has been largely appreciative of the entire endeavour.

Just brilliant. Great to see #politicians do cool stuff like this @Amb_MSteiner @madhukishwar, Salman Khurshid.

Glad to see our ex Foreign minister Salman Khurshid acting in a song. Sporting! via @youtube
