Video: Girl Wearing A Saree Pulls Off Fabulous Hula Hoop Performance To ‘Genda Phool’

Have you guys ever tried grooving to the beats of a peppy number with hula hoops? Well, I can’t even use the gigantic ring efficiently for crying out loud. But, this morning I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a woman doing a hula hoop dance on Rekha Bharadwaj’s ‘Genda Phool’.

But what’s more interesting is that she danced on the song while donning a sari and sporting sneakers.

Hoop dancer Eshna Kutty became the talk of the town when one of her impressive videos made it to the internet. In the clip retweeted by her mother journalist Chitra Narayanan, you can see the 23-year-old artist showcasing her unmatched skills.

Take a look at the video:

Can one really flex to a song like Genda Phool which is all heart tho? This post is primarily to share with you why I put out #sareeflow as a hashtag. It had been on my mind for months, and the intention was not to create the most sensual saree videos, but to feel so comfortable and happy wearing it without the pressure of being a delicate lady. That aside, I wanted to also spotlight Indian hoopers because we're so few in number but growing so fast. Theres so much diversity in our cultures and even in our sarees that I hoped this trend would add a very unique twist to a global art form. Or visa versa- that you'd want to get yourself a hoop because you secretly want to dress up to goof around. Either case, I think it's fantastic that you're doing it anyway and sharing it ❤️ . . .
