After the most famous Kiki Challenge, another deadly challenge has taken over the people of Kerela called the Nillu Nillu Challenge. Singer Jassie Gift’s song from 2004 film named Rain Rain Come Again is all over the internet after 14 years of its release and young people are using it for the challenge in which they stop a moving vehicle and start dancing infront of it with dried branches in their hands.
Considering how dangerous it can be to stop a speeding vehicle suddenly just to dance infront of it, Kerala Police has issued a serious warning to all the people who are involved in this challenge. They shared a troll video of the Nillu Nillu challenge in which the people dancing infront of the speeding truck were taken to the hospital in the Ambulance. They captioned the video as, “Do not invite accidents, let’s not have dangerous imitations.” The video is getting popular on social media platforms like Musical.ly and Tik Tok and has become a new thing amongst the youth.
Kerala Police’s post then goes on to describe the Nillu Nillu challenge.“If at first they stopped the two-wheelers, later it became private vehicles and four wheelers. They are even jumping in front of fast-running buses. The new generation tends to imitate anything dangerous to get noticed on social media. They do not think of a situation when the vehicle could not apply brakes suddenly or the danger if the vehicle suddenly swerves or the mental state of the driver. You can never justify such jokes that could end up in big disasters,” the post says.
Not just the youth, the challenge has taken over actors as well like Vishnu Unnikrishnan who have joined in by posting a video from his film Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan where he dances with another actor on the road. Many other people are also posting videos wearing a helmet. However, it still looks dangerous. Jassie Gift, whose song has suddenly become popular again, says it is a pleasant surprise after 14 years. “As a fun element, it is okay, but should move away from being dangerous,” the musician tells TNM.
