Before this another video of a saree clad Indian woman went viral – Eshna Kutty, dancing with a hoop on Dilli 6‘s Genda Phool. The mind-blowing dance routine went viral on all social media platforms because a) it appeared challenging, b) Kutty performs with a hula hoop, wearing a saree with sneakers.
23-year-old Eshna posted the video on her Instagram account from where it quickly made its way to Twitter with the hashtag #SareeFlow. Soon, the video blew up and people started sharing it across platforms. It was then retweeted by Kutty’s mother, journalist Chitra Narayanan.
‘Woke up to several people Whatsapping me this video! Meet my daughter who has sparked off a #sareeflow trend,’ Chitra Narayanan wrote while sharing the clip.
