Sourav Ganguly Danced On Om Shanti Om Song
On this occasion, Ganguly and the ones accompanying him were out in the night near the London Eye and were in a joyous mood. A video has emerged on social media wherein Ganguly can be seen shaking a leg to the popular Bollywood song ‘Om Shanti Om’.
Ganguly is seen dancing along with his friends and family, also including his daughter Sana. However, while Ganguly and the rest are dancing, Sana is seen sitting bursting with laughter and hiding her face in embarrassment and amusement as ‘Dada’ moved his legs and his hands in rhythm to the famous song.
Somebody from the group can also also be heard saying, “Sana is so embarrassed.” Ganguly then holds Sana’s hands and asks her to join him, which she reluctantly does but then goes on to say, “I will be the DJ.”
