Digital media is a boon for those who like to watch viral videos or want to make something viral. Within minutes videos get popular…thanks to WhatsApp, YouTube and Facebook. One forward helps the video to reach 100 people in seconds. And if it gets repeated to 100 groups it's already viral.

We have seen this in Priya Prakash Varrier’s case when a single wink made her the biggest internet sensation of 2018 till this uncle who danced at a wedding like no pone's watching. Meet 'Dancing Uncle' Sanjeev Srivastava. 

Srivastava has stormed the social media after his dancing video from a wedding went viral. He could be seen dancing on Govinda's chartbuster song-- "Aap Ke Aa Jane Se" from the 1987 flick Khudgarz. And since then netizens have gone berserk over the 46-year-old's dancing talent. His cool moves have now earned him the moniker 'Dancing Uncle' on the social media. He is a die-hard fan of veteran actor Govinda. 

"This is an unreal feeling. I can't believe my dance video has gone viral. I thank everyone for the love and support. I have been dancing since 1982 and my idol is Govinda ji. Now I hope to get more opportunities," Srivastava, who hails from Vidisha, said. 

Talking to news agency ANI, a very overjoyed Srivastava shared his amazement to the sudden fame.

Srivastava is an engineer (electronics branch) by profession. He claims that he has been dancing on Bollywood numbers for decades. However, the popularity that a video clip of him shaking his legs on a Govinda number has brought is dreamlike. 

It may be recalled that Priya Prakash Varrier became an overnight sensation with just a wink. A few months back, a clip from the song of a Malayalam movie Oru Adaar Love went viral in which she was seen exchanging flirtatious glances with her co-star Roshan Abdul Rahoof. People started referring her as the "National Crush".
