A video of a middle-aged man dancing to an old Bollywood tune during a wedding function has truly gone viral on social media platforms. The video has surfaced everywhere, on Twitter, Facebook and even WhatsApp.
In the video, a man understood to be in his late 40s, is seen dancing to an old Bollywood chart-buster, Aap Ke Aa Jaane Se.., a song that had Govinda and Neelam enthrall the audience in the movie Khudgarz in the late 80s. Although the dancing uncle has a lady giving him company on the stage, it’s his solo performance, which has caught the imagination of the internet users.
The dancing uncle, as he’s being referred to on social media, is copying Govinda’s dance moves to utter perfection. He’s suddenly become a social media sensation.
Sharing the link to the dance video, journalist Barkha Dutt tweeted, “Gosh this is SUPERB.”
