Indian Women Belly Dance to ‘Oo Antava’ in Viral Video
The crowd was constantly hooting and cheering.
The Telugu blockbuster Pushpa – The Rise, featuring Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna continues to make waves on the internet.
The craze for the film has completely taken over social media whether in India or abroad, with people creating dance reels to its peppy songs or lip-syncing to Allu Arjun’s dialogues.
A group of saree-clad Indian women was recently seen doing a belly dance performance at an event in their society in Noida.
The three women set the stage on fire with sensual belly rolls to the song ‘Oo Antava’ featuring Samantha Ruth Prabhu.
The catchy number has garnered more than 90 million views in Telugu and over 73 million in Hindi.
‘Oo Antava’ being her first special song, Samantha said that she was reluctant to do it, but Allu Arjun’s motivation made her grab this opportunity.
Samantha said: “There were many inhibitions. I was not ready as I feared how the song would turn out to be.
“But, Allu Arjun, sat down and convinced me. Without his encouragement, I would not have accepted to do ‘Oo Antava’.
“Now that this song has become viral all over the country, I have to thank Allu Arjun.”
While the woman in the middle, Khushi Sharma, was wearing a red saree, the other two women, Avni and Honey, were wearing orange sarees.
Khushi Sharma is a belly dance instructor and performed at the event with two of her students.
After ‘Oo Antava’, the three Indian women danced to a second song which is also very popular, ‘Tip Tip Barsa Pani 2.0’ featuring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
‘Tip Tip Barsa Pani 2.0’, which is a remake of ‘Tip Tip Barsa Pani’, has gained much attention after it was released on YouTube.
The track became the most-watched video on YouTube with millions of views from all over the world.
The chemistry between Akshay and Katrina in the song was compared with the original version of the song featuring Raveena Tandon and Akshay in the 1994 film Mohora.
In the viral video, the crowd was constantly hooting and cheering for the women during the well-coordinated belly dance performance.
While the choreography is original, the trio could also be seen doing the same dance steps used in the songs.
The full video of the performance was shared on Instagram by the Indian woman in the red saree on her handle @kkhushii_sharma.
The reel has received over 31,000 views and 2,000 likes. On Facebook, the video has garnered more than 8 million views.
In the caption, Khushi wrote: “This was the first time, I along with my students performed with a live audience.”
