The Shape Of You singer wrote: “I got to come out with Diljit Dosanjh tonight in Mumbai and sing in Punjabi for the first time. I had a great time in India, more to come!”

Meanwhile, Dosanjh shared the video with the caption: “Brother sings in Punjabi for the first time.”

In the comments section, celebrities also expressed their excitement over the collaboration, with actor Varun Dhawan simply writing: “Global domination.”

Dosanjh, 40, is a megastar with fans in India and around the world.

This is not the first time he has been paired with a Western star in Punjabi. Last year, he released a song called Hass Hass, which he worked on in collaboration with Cheap Thrills singer Sia.

Fans were quick to praise Dosanjh for getting another big name to sing in Hindi.

“First Sia, now Ed, Diljit will make everyone sing in Punjabi,” one wrote on Instagram.

Another wrote: “Hats off to Diljit.” “This guy literally blew up the Punjabi music scene giving rise to other artists [sing] In Punjabi.”

Sheeran is one of the biggest stars on the planet, with many hits under his belt. He released his latest album, “Outum Variations,” last September.

His concert in Mumbai was part of his tour of Asia and Europe.
