Bollywood has a global impact with its melodramatic tales and evergreen songs. Now, tracks from hit Bollywood movies are also being used as dance challenges on TikTok and other social media platforms.
Just like this white father-son duo have found their internal spirit aligned with the song Gori Gori from the superhit Shah Rukh Khan film Main Hoon Na. Instagram user @ricky.pond posted their cover of the dance moves recently and their moves have managed to catch the attention of desi social media.

Both the “dancing dad” and his son nail the jiggly knee, hands up in the air, and other disco moves to present an impressive take on the 2004 song. Moreover, both seemed to be really enjoying themselves with their bright smiles and well-coordinated steps.

Released in the early 2000s, Gori Gori featured the entire lead cast of the Farah Khan directed Main Hoon Na and reigned as one of the top party songs of the decade. Featuring Shah Rukh, Sushmita Sen, Amrita Rao and Zayed Khan, the movie was one of the biggest hits of the year. Renowned artists like KK, Anu Malik, Shreya Ghoshal, and Sunidhi Chauhan performed in the song. The latest performance surely touched the nostalgic nerve of the Indian audience.
Earlier, Sushmita Sen had praised Money Heist star Itziar Ituño aka Agent Raquel Murillo for singing the popular song 'Chunari Chunari', starring Salman Khan and Sushmita Sen. After confessing her love for Bollywood music and dance, the actress had sung a few lines of the hit track in an interview. Later this video went viral and Sushmita came across it.
