MP: ‘Dancing uncle’ now brand ambassador of Vidisha's civic body
Sanjeev Srivastava, an assistant professor at Bhopal's Bhabha Engineering Research Institute has set internet on fire with his video dancing on a number from 1987 Govinda-starrer "Khudgarz". Two of his dance videos from a wedding recently went viral on social media and news channels since Thursday evening.
Stunned by his overnight fame, the 46-year-old 'uncle dancer' has now been appointed the brand ambassador of Vidisha Municipal Corporation in Madhya Pradesh.
In one of the videos, he was seen dancing on 'Aap Ke Aa Jaane se' from 1987 movie Khudgarz, while in the other he danced on 'Chadhti Jawani'.
Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had taken to Twitter to praise Srivastavas dancing skills performance.
