Gippy Grewal, Punjabi singer and actor, made participants put on their dancing shoes during the cultural night on day three of the National Youth Festival on Tuesday at Open Theatre of Punjab Agricultural University (PAU).


Although he came nearly an hour and a half late, he tried his best to enthral the audience through his popular numbers.

Gippy Grewal started his performance with 'Ardaas' and then he didn't let anyone sit on the chairs while performing the dance numbers. From songs such as 'Hathiyar', 'Pind nanke rehndi si', 'Varkya vangu fad du ni ashiq tere', he brought warmth to the chilly night at PAU. His popular song 'Hello hello' took enthusiasm to new heights.

The best part of the event was despite the songs being in Punjabi, the youth from Tamil Nadu, Meghalaya, Gujarat, Odisha were seen dancing to its beats. A youth from Tamil Nadu said words don't matter in music beats are just enough.

The singer didn't let the listeners go bored even for a minute as he kept on conversing with them and asked them to dance.

Before Gippy's performance Punjabi folk dance Luddi rocked the stage. The audience was captivated by the Punjabi culture and tradition. Later, the Gujarati and Meghalaya dance gave a different spice to the cultural night.
