What do tennis star Novak Djokovic and Sai Krishna, a second year civil engineering student from Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay, have in common: their attempt at the Gangnam Style dance.


While Djokovic celebrated his China Open win with the dance made famous by the South Korean rapper Psy, Krishna ensured an easy win at IIT-B Freshiezza, the institute’s inter-hostel freshers’ dance competition.

Krishna taught his juniors the famous Gangnam steps. “As soon as the song was played, the audience cheered as they knew the steps already,” said Krishna.

The video is causing quite a stir in city colleges, being the most downloaded and shared video on campus while the dance steps have become a sensation in campuses.

Since the Gangnam Style video featuring Psy went viral after its July release on YouTube, colleges across the world have uploaded their parodies on the song. Till date, the video has managed to notch up over 457,805,750 views on YouTube.

At the Mechanical Day celebrations in the Don Bosco Institute of Technology, Kurla, dance groups performed the Gangnam Style number vowing the audience with their moves. Even at IIT’s DJ night students made repeated  requests for the Gangnam song.
