If you haven't seen it yet, a video of a middle-aged man dancing to a Bollywood number at a wedding function has gone insanely viral across social media platforms.

In the video, the man is seen shaking a leg to Govinda's chartbuster song-- "Aap Ke Aa Jane Se" from the 1987 movie Khudgarz.

What's the big deal? Once the song starts, although accompanied by a lady on the stage, the man transports to a zone only known to him and delivers a performance of a lifetime.

His video was shared across social media platforms and several Bollywood celebrities stepped in to turn the "dancing uncle" into an overnight sensation.

The Internet then donned its detective hat to find out the man who has sent positive vibes to the interwebz.

Turns out, the "viral uncle" Sanjeev Shrivastava hails from Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh. The 50-year-old is a professor in Bhabha Engineering Research Institute.

A Twitter account that goes by the handle @bhaiyyajispeaks did the revelation.

The account also shared an old photo of Shrivastava striking a pose.

"His name is Sanjiv Srivastava, He is a professor in Bhabha University & his home town is Vidisha. One man who became reason for happiness of millions of people yesterday. Sharing an old picture of ‘Dancing Uncle’, True Star," the Twitter account wrote.

Govinda, you know what you have to do now.
