Among others, there are other videos where the Indians in Germany can be seen performing on Bollywood songs.
The Karneval der Kulturen is a multicultural festival celebrated in Berlin every year. The celebrations include processions, theatre performances and musical events. This year, it was celebrated from June 7 to June 10.
Other videos include the evergreen Punjabi song Tunak Tunak Tu.
However, many posts on social media wrongly claimed that the video is from England, the venue of the ICC Cricket World Cup.
After the video went viral, AFWA got in touch with Neeraja Nair, one of the heads of the dance group named Berlin Indiawaale, who also took part in the festival on June 9. Nair said, “This year, 73 countries displayed their culture at the festival. We walked about 3-5 kilometre. We were probably around the street called Herman Platz, where a Ganesha temple is also located when the Bhojpuri song was played.”
Berlin Indiawaale selects songs from across India and presents it in the form of dance performances every year at different International festivals.
