The traditional dance forms Garba and Dandiya, which are performed in large gatherings, are one of the key attractions of the country’s Navratri celebrations. Digital content creators have been producing interesting content around the Navratri festival in the form of reels showcasing the craze of Garba and dandiya among the masses. However, a video produced by a mimicry artist in which he imitates various Bollywood actors dancing the Garba and dandiya has captured the internet’s attention.
Sumedh Shinde, known for his voice impersonations of Bollywood celebrities such as Aamir Khan, John Abraham, Ranveer Singh, and Hrithik Roshan, among others, shared the popular video on Twitter.
