A little bit of music and dance never hurt anyone and that’s exactly what former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah seemed to believe as he attended Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh’s granddaughter’s wedding ceremony in Chandigarh over the weekend. A video from the event that has gone viral shows the duo shaking a leg together at the wedding of Seharinder Kaur, who is the daughter of Amarinder’s son Raninder Singh. The 83-year-old Abdullah seemed to be particularly enjoying himself as the video starts with him matching steps to the tunes of a live performance.
Abdullah then goes towards Amarinder and ropes him in to dance along with him to the centre of the spot where the duo then dance to the tunes of ‘Aaj Kal Tere Mere Pyar Ke Charche’ and ‘Gulabi Aankhen Jo Teri Dekhi’. The former is from the movie ‘Brahmachari’ and the latter is from ‘The Train’. Both the songs are Mohammed Rafi originals sung back in the 1960s and 1970s.

The Punjab CM’s granddaughter married Aditya Narang, son of Delhi-based businessman Devin Narang on Sunday.
The video has received a lot of love on the internet with people praising the fact that the duo, despite their heavy work profiles, can seem to be share a light moment.
Our leaders should have such lighter moments.I still remember Sushma Ji's dance.

Congress leader Saral Patel also shared the video, commenting how the duo’s video proves that age is just a number.

Abdullah and Singh reportedly enjoy a great rapport with each other.
The former J&K chief minister was recently in the news after the Supreme Court, while hearing a PIL against him said that holding an opinion different from that of the government in power was not sedition. The court also dismissed the petition filed against the politician from Kashmir.
