The man in the clip is professor Sanjeev Shrivastava, who teaches in the electronics department at the Bhabha Engineering Research Institute in Bhopal. The 46-year-old man, who hails from Vidisha district was dancing at his brother-in-law's wedding in Gwalior on May 12 where someone shot this video.
Talking to Hindustan Times, Shrivastava said that his mother was a classical dancer. ''I have been dancing since 1982. Dance is a god-gifted talent in me. I was inspired by my mother Mohini Devi Shrivastava who has been a classical dancer. I have not got any formal training. I won Madhya Pradesh’s best dancer award three times in the eighties in competitions held in Bhopal,” he said.
Netizens were so impressed with his cool moves that they can't stop sharing his video. He is being widely referred to as 'Dancing Uncle' or 'Govinda Uncle'. Even celebrities like Divya Dutta, Barkha Dutt and Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan took to Twitter to applaud his devil-may-care attitude.
