On day 2 of the first IND vs SA test match being swept away by heavy rain, Indian bowling duo R Ashwin and Shardul Thakur engaged in a fun chat, during which they discussed the different dance steps they have run recently.
Thakur was seen alongside Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer when the trio danced to the famous 1973 song Koi Sehri Babu. Meanwhile, Ashwin posted videos of him trying out dance moves alongside Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya, among others.
R Ashwin and Shardul Thakur discuss their dance moves
In an interview published by the BCCI on Monday, R Ashwin was in conversation with Shardul Thakur on a program called “Walk & Talk”. When Shardul asked Ashwin to explain his dance moves, the faux-thread replied:
“If I have to think about it, I don’t know if you were motivated by my first video, which was about a song by actor Vijay, which is actually quite popular. To be honest, this video of mine with Washi and Hari, it was there in my film for a long time, but I didn’t think about posting it. I decided to post it after seeing the video of you Shreyas and Rohit dancing. It sounded very similar , but you were better choreographed and stuff like that. “
The two then evaluated each other’s dance moves, with Ashwin claiming the dancing didn’t come naturally to him. “Dancing is something that’s completely off the schedule for me. I look at myself and think I want to dance a certain way, but I definitely can’t,” said the off-wire.
In response, Shardul said: “But surely you can move your shoulder just fine. Is it because of your bowling?” Ashwin then responded to the question jokingly, “No, the stage is like that. I think actor Vijay took inspiration from me and did it.”
