Like any other normal day at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus commuters were busy tracking trains to their destination, until they saw something unique. A day after India observed the third anniversary of 26/11, 200 dancers were seen grooving to the ‘Rang De Basanti’ song on the station.
The large group gathered at the famous CST at 4:50 and performed a choreographed dance number to AR Rahman’s famous number, ‘Rang De Basanti.’ The idea came from Shonan Kothari, 23, who works for a CSR consultancy in Mumbai. Shonan managed to convince enough people and the group practiced for a few weeks before performing at CST’s platform 5.
The idea was to pay homage to all those who lost their lives in the 26/11 attacks and salute the spirit of Mumbaikars. The otherwise stern CST authorities stopped train services for ten minutes for the performance.
Here is the video. Seems like they all had a great time. Have a look!
