Madhya Pradesh CM hails Dancing Uncle
The recent viral video of a 50-year-old man dancing at a wedding needs no introduction. You are most likely to have come across the clip on social media or received it as a WhatsApp message. A joke goes that the video has been recognized by the UNESCO.
Who is the 'Dancing Uncle' in the video? We have the answer. He is Prof. Sanjeev Srivastava, an electronics professor at Bhabha University. A big fan of Bollywood actor Govinda, he dances with gay abandon and with grace on special occasions. When he did so recently, someone shot and uploaded it on the Net. And it went viral in no time.
None other than Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, has lauded the Internet "sensation". "There is something special in the water of Madhya Pradesh," the CM has said!
हमारे विदिशा के भोपाल में कार्यरत प्रोफ़ेसर श्री संजीव श्रीवास्तव जी की ज़िंदादिली ने पूरे भारत में इंटरनेट पर तहलका मचा दिया है। मानो या ना मानो मध्यप्रदेश के पानी में कुछ तो ख़ास बात है... pic.twitter.com/8qM15uZVXF— ShivrajSingh Chouhan (@ChouhanShivraj) June 1, 2018
