In the video which has now gone viral, Aggarwal can be seen dancing to Harrdy Sandhu’s song “Bijlee Bijlee” wearing sunglasses, a white shirt and blue jeans. The Ola founder appears to be enjoying himself as he and a colleague attempt the dance number’s popular hook step and perform on a well-choreographed segment of the number.

Aggarwal, however, found the experience very interesting, it seems, as Ola’s CEO shared the video on his Twitter timeline and wrote, “Doing some final ‘expert testing’ for the music feature of MoveOS 2”. The top boss shared the tweet with a laughing emoji and a dancing emoji.

Following the fire, Aggarwal announced in an internal communications statement that it would focus more on engineering, product development and team building for future businesses such as electric vehicles (EVs). and fast trading. The announcement came after many Ola customers complained about the new scooters, leading to further scrutiny of electric vehicles.
“I will be spending more time with all engineering functions, team building and product,” Aggarwal said in the internal memo. “I will also focus more on our long-term strategic projects, including new 2W (two-wheeler) products, our car project, innovations in rapid commerce, electrification of driving, our R&D and our factory. cells (batteries), international expansion, building our technology center in Pune and Futurefoundary, UK and more,” Aggarwal said following the unfortunate incident.
Aggarwal also revealed that the group’s chief financial officer, Arun GR, will be given an expanded role to “lead day-to-day operations” across the group.
