"This is our second weekend opening Jumanji in Malaysia and we are already the third biggest movie of all time, which is incredible in our second week," the "Jumanji" star said.
Keepin’ that gratitude train rollin’.. MALAYSIA 🇲🇾 THANK YOU! #Jumanji is already the 3rd biggest movie of all time and who knows where we wind up. Our roots go way back years ago as I had some of my best (and grueling) wrestling matches right there in Kuala Lumpur. Unforgettable times. I’m forever grateful for your love over the years.
He even goes down memory lane to show just how grateful he is to his Malaysian fans, putting the following in his video caption: "Our roots go way back years ago as I had some of my best (and gruelling) wrestling matches right there in Kuala Lumpur. Unforgettable times. I'm forever grateful for your love over the years."
